Lady Gaga celebrated her 24th birthday on March 28.Â A few days before that, she posedÂ topless for a picture that she posted on Twitter.Â In the topless Twitter picture, she is seen leaning into the camera, holding a bright red cup.Â
The Lady Gaga topless Twitter pictureÂ is an exercise in living Warhol-ism — the bright yellow hair, the brightÂ red cupÂ against a bland base.Â And it is also vaguely reminiscent of the fish-eye lens camera shot in the classic Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers music video, “Don’t Come Around Here No More.”Â It is sort of Alice in Wonderland-ish, teacup and all.Â
The tweet Lady Gaga attached to her topless picture read: “Nothing like a communist-red teacup to make for the perfect Birthday gift. Last words are for fools who haven’t said enough.”
So what does all that mean?
The second part of the tweet is in reference to the first part and is the work of Karl Marx.Â Lady Gaga, it would seem, is self-deprecating, calling herself foolish for continuing to elaborate as she notes that her cup runneth over.Â Or something like that…
It is really difficult to concentrate with all that cleavage bisecting the Twitter picture…
The topless Twitter picture is just the latest in a long line of creations and activities that keep the flamboyant singer constantly in the headlines.Â She recently released a video, “Telephone,” with Beyonce, that captures the Lady Gaga taken into a jail cell, stripped of her clothes.Â One of the two women guards notes that Lady Gaga doesn’t have male genitalia.Â Then Lady Gaga jumps into the cellÂ bars completely naked.Â
The video undoubtedly was in answer to all the speculation that the pop singer is either male or a hermaphrodite.
Lady Gaga was also asked to appear in a photo shoot where everyone in it would appear naked.Â Although a fan of the photographer’s, Lady Gaga was in London while the photo shoot occurred in Sydney, Australia.
