Lady Gaga covered this edition of the official GRAMMY magazine, with an image from her performance of "Born This Way" at this year’s ceremony taking precedence. A small review about her appearance at this years awards is also featured:
Also racking up awards was Lady GaGa, who claimed three: Best Pop Vocal Album for The Fame Monster, and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance and Best Short Form Music Video for Bad Romance.
Never one to miss the chance to make an entrance, she hatched herself onstage from a giant opaque egg as a nod to her new single, “Born This Way”, and her bare shoulders, which sprouted pointy appendages, were likely a way to show the power and beauty of being unique. Her dancers and outfit gave off a Cleopatra vibe, but GaGa couldn’t be stopped from seeming ultra-modern, and her performance reflected that; it was a warp-speed whirlwind.
In keeping with that same modernist – or maybe futurist – spirit, she accepted her award for best Pop Vocal Album in black body armor. But GaGa also proved she can be an old-fashioned girl with a soft side. In an emotional acceptance speech, she surprised the audience by thanking Whitney Houston: “I imagined she was singing…because I wasn’t secure enough in myself to imagine I was a superstar. Whitney, I imagined you.”
