It feels like FOREVER since we saw that unforgettable two-second shot of Jean Paul Gaultier spanking Lady Gaga in a nun costume from the Gaga by Gaultier special teaser, and luckily the full premiere is allmmooossttt here! Today we got our hands on the extended preview, and it's filled with even MORE goodies than the last—including Lady Gaga talking about her sexual preferences (yes, they include women!), drug use, and taking her clothes off (although baring it all is apparently Ms. Gaga's new thang). During the interview she wears an incredi-goth head-to-toe black shoulder-padded ensemble with an open slit down the front; a multi-colored black, blonde, and red beehive wig; to-die-for crystal drop earrings; ornate eyeliner; and a pop of rouge lipstick. Although some parts of the special seem racy, we're mega-intrigued by the flashback scene of who Gaga used to be. Are we the only ones who are interested in Stefani Germanotta's onstage ensemble? The transformation from NYC girl to Mother Monster is one we're SUPER excited for! Pencil in some free time next Monday during all your fashion week shenanigans to catch the full length premiere of the doc at 8/7c on The CW. In the meantime, you can watch this video on repeat like we did (is 11 times too much or not enough? Don't judge!).

I just feel like this is one of those titles that should end with #duh #obvi and #asyoudo because, well, how can you bat an eyelash at any of what's going on here? So while I had every intention of giving y'all at least a 24-hour Lady Gaga break since the entire internet is constantly swarming with her various comings, goings, swaddlings, shoddings, whatever "-ings" the one for hats would be, but then she just goes and does something fascinating and wonderful like hang out with Jean Paul Gaultier so he can make a documentary about her. I love this guy.
I miss Gaultier, just in the sense that I miss him being on my feed and all over the place. Just as I wish Thierry Mugler, the actual man—no disrespect obviously to Nicola Formichetti, who is a genius and the brains behind getting LONG-ARCHIVED LACROIX WEDDING DRESSES onto my television screen *bows deeeeeeeeeeep to anoint hallowed feet with costly emollients*—who is going by "Manfred" and devoting his life to esoteric musical theater would grace my feed with a new fashion creation. Holy please come home Manfred Mugler! (I would add MM links here, but sometimes there's too many surprise exposed penises, and I'm keeping it PG.) ANYWAY, yeah, I love JPG. I love his stripes. I love his shoulder pads. I HATEENVYSEETHERlove that Gaga gets to clawpaw through his archives and pick out stuff she feels like wearing.
I love that they're getting along. I love that she uses the "vous" form when addressing him because she's not a horrible trollop person. I love that when he brings her a bouquet of flowers, they both seem genuinely delighted and happy. Basically, I can't wait for this "Gaga By Gaultier" documentary, because just when I think I've reached my personal saturation point with the Gaggle, she finds another way to pull me back and titillate me all over again. It feels pretty good.
