Fabulous pic, she looks gorgeous, I loveitloveitloveit. The interview though….It reads like an SNL parody of a Gaga/Lagerfeld interview, with the two of them talking baby talk about Choupette and Asia (their respective pets). “My widdle kitty talks to me with her EYES, don’t you sugarboogerhoneyuggams?” “My puppywuppy likes her BELLY RUBBED, don’t you babykins, YES YOU DO.” They sound like a couple sixth graders at a sleep-over. Hardly the high-concept/Marina Abramovic-approved/fashion-as-art talk you would expect from these two. Here’s an actual excerpt:
KARL LAGERFELD: Since my Choupette is the most famous cat on the Internet, and your [French bulldog] Asia is the most famous dog on the Internet, should they meet? Does Asia have a personal maid like Choupette does?
LADY GAGA: They most certainly must meet! Asia is very sweet and calm. She would be very gentle with Choupette. She does not have a personal maid yet, but I adore making her little presents and cooking her homemade puppy food.
KL: Choupette talks without words; she communicates with me through her eyes. How does Asia communicate with you?
LG: Asia and I have a very special bond. She also talks a lot with her big, beautiful eyes. Her ears are especially large for a Frenchie, and I can tell she’s comfy at home with Mommy because her ears are down. Asia also loves belly rubs, from everyone, and she lies on her back all the time to let me know!
KL: Choupette is my muse. Is Asia your musical inspiration?
LG: Asia is my inspiration for many things. She has really shown me the importance of living in the moment. If I don’t, I’ll miss a precious look on her face! She is a very romantic and loving animal, and this sort of poetry is what art is all about, I think. Interaction. She loves to sit with me when I record jazz. She never barks or makes noise; she just looks at me with her big ears.
KL: I think animals are better muses than human beings—they’ll never fall out of fashion. What do you think of animals?
LG: I love animals. They communicate with us entirely with love, something we all should do. Asia and my love will never be out of fashion—it is unconditional.LG: Asia and I have a very special bond. She also talks a lot with her big, beautiful eyes. Her ears are especially large for a Frenchie, and I can tell she’s comfy at home with Mommy because her ears are down. Asia also loves belly rubs, from everyone, and she lies on her back all the time to let me know!
Then they ate a roll of cookie dough while talking about Troy Battaglia, the captain of the Lacrosse team, and what they would do to him if he were here RIGHT NOW. And they practiced making out with pillows and showed each other their fantasy pom-pom routines and tried to communicate with Corey Monteith on the Ouija board, but then totally freaked each other out and had to sleep with the lights on all night. The end.
