How Pretty Does Gaga Look on the Cover of Elle?

Lady Gaga appears on the cover of January's Elle. Britney Spears also did a cover — but back to Gaga, we think she looks prettier than she's ever looked. Her pale fall look is a welcome departure from the Oompa Loompa tan she displayed in V magazine earlier this year. Gaga spoke to Elle about her album covers:

“My album covers are not sexual at all, which was an issue at my record label. I fought for months, and I cried at meetings. They didn’t think the photos were commercial enough…The last thing a young woman needs is another picture of a sexy pop star writhing in sand, covered in grease, touching herself.”


Good thing this story is coming out after her collaboration with Beyoncé. Moving on, we find it hard to imagine Gaga serving people, but she claims she was an excellent waitress.


“I was really good at it. I always got big tips. I always wore heels to work! I told everybody stories, and for customers on dates, I kept it romantic. It’s kind of like performing.”


And our life's greatest regret was shaping up to be, oh, not giving it all up to be hippies in Bali for a few years, but no — it is not having Gaga wait on us on a date, because few things make straight men feel more uncomfortable than that woman singing about disco sticks. And nothing beats a good awkward date.
