Lady GaGa Plans Clothing Line, Akon Approves.

Colleen Nika February 4, 2009 21

Lady GaGa continues to honorably defend her title as the most popular gimmick of 2009. She may be topping the music charts these days, but she’s clever enough to use her proudly style-over-substance philosophy to her advantage while she can — rest assured that not a single of her fifteen minutes will be left commercially unexploited. What are we hinting here?

You guessed it: it’s time for GaGa to launch a clothing line. Or, rather — a rumored “pants line”. Don’t know what that means? Neither do we: in fact, we kind of thought not wearing pants was part of her shtick.

As the garish, leotard-loving Gaga is synonymous with neon camp, ignominious spandex-ed cameltoes, and hell of a lot of Hedwig glitter, we can only fear the worst for what she might design for her imaginary fanbase to wear. Flashes of a pornographic Kira Plastinina transcending its bankrupt grave immediately come to mind, as do visions of Christina Aguilera in her Dee Snider phase. It goes without saying that this would present a truly terrifying retail scenario for even the flashiest of mall consumers, but GaGa welcomes the prospect of mini-mes — the sooner, the better.

“I can’t wait to do my own line,” Gaga told Grazia recently. ‘It’s definitely something I want to do in the next year, as I do have my own style. I’m already talking to my boy Akon about it.”

Akon is a rapper, so obviously, he knows plenty about fashion.

In reflection of GaGa’s fashion impact, he quips:
“People dissed her because of the way she dresses, but she’s hot. Everyone wants to look like her. She’ll walk around in London in her underwear and you watch, everyone will catch on.”

For our sake and the world’s, we hope to God not.

Would you consider wearing anything Lady GaGa had a part in designing?

    She may be considered stylish, but wow… can’t say I’d be caught dead in any of her outfits. Now, maybe if I was 20 lbs lighter…

    Akon, please see Edie Sedgwick, Grace Jones,and the 80′s in general. Now go back to your crib, little one w/ no sense of the past.

    When Lady Gaga first started becoming popular I thought she’d just be another flash-in-the-pan generic pop artist, but after some scrutiny I don’t think this is the case.

    She has brains, guts, talent, and individuality. Style over substance? Well, much of her allure is from putting on a mind-blowing show and dressing how no one else dares. But I say she backs it up with quite a lot of substance. Someone wrote of her “she’s not what the radio says she is. she has more depth than just a dance song. despite all that, she’s still going to be mainstream. at least the mainstream will now ask ‘what is warhol?’”

    Her look is part of her persona, definitely. But I enjoy it; besides, it’s a breath of fresh air to have someone this daring capture this generation’s attention. I’d take Lady Gaga and her wild clothing any day over a drably dressed female artist that’s been molded completely by a record company.

    I’d wear her clothes. Make life more exciting, for sure.

    I WOULD ALSO WEAR ALMOST ANYTHING SHE DESIGNED BUT SHE SHOULD BE MORE VERSATILE AND MAKE STUFF FOR MALES AND FEMALES.

    I love the way she dresses, and would wear most of the things she does if I knew where she got them from. Is life not about being what you want to be? Dressing bravely is not just fun but shows people that she doesn’t care what they think.
    At least she’s not pretending to be someone she’s not. I think she’s great, and would wear her designs if they are similar to what she wears.

    YES most deff.

    Personally, I think the article is cleverly written and quite amusing. I think Lady Gaga has her moments but her style seems so forced and fake, a discordant shriek for attention if you will. I don’t buy it. I can hardly concur with the idea that people who don’t fall prey to her grand gimmicks are of “lower minds”. Rather, the phenomenon of flashy, gaudy fashion has appropriately become less and less equated with talent. Besides, it takes an elevated mind and a strong will to go against the grain of lemmings who love anything Gaga wears, simply because Gaga wears it.

    imaginary fan base huh? with every show sold out and 4 million plus followers on face book? i personally would wear her stuff but i push my own fashion envelope already.. what her fans get from her more than music and clothes… its inspiration.. some people from lyrics some from fashion..personally im inspired by her fearlessness… what a great quality to have… not caring what people think… but in everyones defense everyone is entitled to their opinions and i try to see everyones point of view.. we’re all different. so i woud buy pieces and make them my own.. the way true personal style should be cultivated and worn..
