Lady GaGa’s latest publicity stunt has backfired as she walked out of a recent magazine photoshoot after bosses at the publication refused to let her don a strap-on in a desperate bid to address rumours she is a hermaphrodite.
Internet footage of the Poker Face hitmaker onstage last year sparked fresh debate as to whether or not she had both female and male reproductive organs and whilst the singer dismissed the rumours as “ridiculous,” she decided she wanted to comment on the story by setting up a shocking pose for the new issue of Britain’s Q magazine.
She told the publication, “What I would like to do is make beautiful photography out of the most humorous rumour of my life, thus far, that I have a penis. I want to wear a d**k strapped to my vagina. We all know that one of the biggest talking points of the year was that I have a d**k, so why not give them what they want?
“I also carry myself onstage in a masculine way and sing in a low register. This is not of nowhere, right? I want to comment on that in a beautiful, artistic way. How I wanna show it. It would be a real, f**king story, right? Come on, come see me try to persuade everyone to let me wear a penis.”
But editors weren’t impressed with her demands, and following a series of tense negotiations, the star burst into tears and walked out before bosses at Q eventually rearranged the shoot and the final pictures, which feature Gaga posing topless in just a pair of leather trousers, appear in the magazine’s latest issue.
Gaga admitted she often struggles with pictorial spreads, telling the magazine, “We always laugh when we get to major magazines and (they say) ‘We want to see the real you.’ And I’m sitting there thinking, ‘These f**king people don’t get it at all.’ You don’t really want to get to know me at all, or photograph my soul, you want to do some version of what you already think I am. When the truth is my and my big f**king d**k are all out there for you. But I’m not angry, I’m laughing. The joke is not on me, it’s on you.”
To be honest GaGa, I’m not really sure what strapping a penis onto your lady garden would do to dispel those rumours…?
