■ Lady Gaga walked in Marc Jacobs’ Fall 2016 show on Thursday in New York City.
Gaga briefly spoke with Vogue backstage, saying “I told Marc I was disappointed the shoes weren’t taller,” she joked. “I was getting ready to do the Grammys, and I told him that I would do it. It’s really wonderful that he brought me in as one of his models.”
The walk, walk fashion baby follows her recent quote to The New York Post where Gaga admits she’ll never have her own fashion line because she respects designers.
“The thing is, at the end of the day, I have a real respect for fashion designers. It’s the reason I don’t have my own line and the reason I never will. If I ever do anything in fashion, it will always just be as a muse or as an aesthetic, creative.”
■ After getting postponed, Kesha’s court date regarding her lawsuit against Dr. Luke is scheduled for Friday (Feb. 19), and she’s nervous.
I have nothing left to hide. I did this because the truth was eating away my soul and killing me from the inside. this is not just for me. this is for every woman, every human who has ever been abused. sexually. emotionally. mentally. I had to tell the truth. so the outcome will be what it will be. there's nothing left I can do. it's just so scary to have zero control in your fate. but this is my path this life for whatever reason…. #Friday ??
■ Natalia Kills ditched her now-ruined persona for a new one: Cruel Youth. She explains in a new note posted online along with a track titled “Mr. Watson.”
Cruel Youth is the musical love child created during a 3-month lock-in at my studio with my husband Willy Moon. It’s The Ronettes on Oxy, it’s a narcotic lullaby, a psychedelic jingle you might hear waiting in line at a Western Union or a laptop symphony soundtracking a car crash in slow motion. Willy and I met whilst both signed to Universal Records, and married only a few months later. Cruel Youth is an intravenous hit of our love and everything I find beautiful.
For a brief moment in 2015 I felt like it was the death of me, but somehow the part that survived was a pure uncensored passion that quickly became the ace in my hand. While evolving my solo project into my new band I was approached to be a personality on X Factor New Zealand, which lead to a publicity stunt resulting in a viral media storm. I was subjected to a global witch hunt I couldn’t defend myself against due to a wide-reaching legal gagging order. It was a truly regrettable situation for everyone involved, and Willy and I flew back to our home in New York where I threw myself headfirst into songwriting. Days later, I was collaborating with Madonna on her #1 album Rebel Heart, co-writing the song “Holy Water”. I was drafted onto Rihanna’s writing team, spending months traveling the world with her, and ultimately co-writing ‘Kiss It Better’ on her worldwide #1 album Anti.
