Lady Gaga Slams Glamour Magazine Over Her Own Cover
Appearing strikingly gorgeous on the cover of the December issue of Glamour magazine, Lady Gaga has come out against the magazine and slamming them because of their use of Photoshop in the cover shot.
Lady Gaga come out against the magazine at the publication's annual Women of the Year Awards saying she really didn't deserve to be on the cover saying,
Who really belongs on the cover is not me. If I could forfeit my Glamour cover, I would give it to Malala."
Malala is the young Pakistani girl that survived an assassination attempt by the Taliban last year. She went on to say to the audience that was assembled in Carnegie Hall last night that,
I felt my skin looked too perfect. I felt my hair looked too soft. I do not look like this when I wake up in the morning, I don't even look like this"
referring to the way she was dressed as she accepted the award from the magazine that she was chastising. In the bold move, Lady Gaga was making it a point for the magazine publisher and editors to realize that covers like hers has damaging effects on the readers that pick it up. She pleaded with readers of the magazine, especially the young to
fight back against the forces that say you have to be beautiful."
Then she turns her comments toward the magazines (and not just Glamour),
It is fair to write about the change in your magazines. But what I want to see is the change on your covers. When the covers change, that's when culture changes."
