Lady Gaga calls for change on magazine covers – down with Photoshop!

Last night the 2013 Glamour Women of The Year awards took place in New York City with a room full of the fashion industry’s most influential people. The fact that this was a room full of game changers was taken on board by one Lady Gaga as she stood to accept her award for the night. Glamour’s December 2013 cover girl had a thing or two to say to the magazine industry. 

While accepting her award, Lady Gaga said the following, concerning her recent cover of Glamour –

“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 {she was referring to her exotic look and makeup on the night}.” 

She went one step further and officially called for change to happen now-

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.”

Lady Gaga, we salute you. Way to take an opportunity and run with it. Now, if only those in the industry would sit up and listen.
