Lady Gaga announced that she will be the new creative director for Polaroid and I’m not going to pretend like I’m not super excited about this. I know a lot of people think she is overrated and over-hyped, but I think this bitch is so fantastic and smart. I love that she has a god complex, as illustrated when she dangled in the air and cried blood à la Jesus Christ nailed to a cross at the end of her 2009 VMA performance. She carries her performances pieces out to her day-to-day life — her outfits have almost gotten her arrested in Russia and in Chicago — and she firmly stands by her “art.” Whether or not you agree that the shit she says and does has any artistic merit is irrelevant. She is 100% committed to being completely insane; if she wants to spend her off days buying her tampons at Walgreen’s dressed like an alien in lace couture, I’m gonna go with it.
So Lady Gaga, I wish you luck on your new business endeavor. Please keep doing what you’re doing. And please make another music video as amazing as “Bad Romance”:
