Lady Gaga has managed to out-do herself with a perfume ad that makes even her latex outfits seem demure.
The pop star tweeted the ad for her Fame fragrance yesterday, which features tiny men scaling her nude body as she dons nothing more than a mask and the sleek perfume bottle. The photograph, shot by fashion photographer Steven Klein, is accompanied by the tagline ”The First Ever Black Eau de Parfum.”
”i won’t lie I’m a bit nervous. its been a while since i’ve shared some work with you. But i’m so proud of Steven+I, we really did not sleep!” she tweeted before revealing the black-and-white image.
Gaga also worked with Klein in 2010 for her “Alejandro” music video.
Back in 2011 the queen of eccentricity told an Australian radio station that the perfume would smell ”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,” she said.
She may have, fortunately, been goofing around. The bottle lists the actual 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.”
