Lady Gaga goes nude for Fame perfume ad
Lady Gaga and her very Little Monsters. (Steven Klein/Coty)Lady Gaga took it all off for her Fame perfume ad — well, except for some strategically-placed little men a la Gulliver's Travels. The singer debuted the racy black-and-white image, shot by Steven Klein, on her LittleMonsters.com site on Monday and it leaves little to the imagination: Gaga is completely nude (except for a black mask) and holding a bottle of her new black-liquid fragrance as 17 miniature men cling to her body in all the necessary places. "i won't lie I'm a bit nervous," the 26-year-old tweeted just before revealing the provocative pose for Fame, which is being distributed by Coty and hits stores in the fall. "its been a while since i've shared some work with you."
So what does Fame smell like? Exactly how you would expect a fragrance created by Lady Gaga to smell. In a radio interview last year, she described it as "like an expensive hooker … [blood and semen] is in the perfume, but it doesn't smell like it. You just get sort of the after feeling of sex from the semen, and the blood is sort of primal. And the blood was taken from my own blood sample, so it's like a sense of having me on your skin."
Thankfully, a sneak peek at the bottle describes a much more pleasant visual. The black-and-gold packaging spells out the ingredients as: Tears of belladonna, crushed heart of tiger orchidea, with a black veil of incense, pulverized apricot, and the combinative essences of saffron and honey drops.
As for the perfume's black liquid — because it's "like the soul of fame" — it's supposed to change color once it touches the skin.
