As if we’re not bombarded with enough images of Lady Gaga, there’s yet another medium for getting your Mother Monster fix. Gaga launched a Tumblr yesterday called Amen Fashion. Her first post was of the much talked-about trompe l’oeil eyeballs that she painted on her eyelids in Japan this weekend. (True Gaga aficionados will recall that she did a version of this already for the famous Hello Kitty shoot in 2009).
There’s also a little bit of diva drama surrounding her newly-minted Tumblr. Zap2It reports that a Gaga fan already had a Tumblr named “Amen Fashion,” which is the title of one of her songs. Community Support at Tumblr contacted the fan and asked him to give up the name at the request of Gaga’s management company, Atom Factory. The original owner of Amen Fashion, Dylan, then changed his blog to Amen Fashion1. Tumblr then asked him nicely to maybe consider changing it a little more. David vs. Goliath, Tumblr style.
Anyway, we’re looking forward to seeing what further wacky fabulousness Gaga comes up with for this very visual platform.
