Donatella Is So Fab, Says Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga’s album ArtPop was officially released today. And aside from the past month’s leaked tracks and her already-praised “Applause”—which, may we add, includes a nod to Jeff Koons—we’ve been curious to hear “Donatella,” the rumored ode to Ms. Versace. Well, the wait is over, and we can report that the song opens with what sounds like a champagne pour, followed by the spoken intro: “I am so fab./ Check out./ I’m blond./ I’m skinny./ I’m rich./ And I’m a little bit of a bitch.” Naturally, we were not disappointed.
While the pop star’s love of extreme sartorial self-expression is ever-apparent (did anyone not see the flying dress she wore to her art rave last night?),”Donatella,” is a reminder that Mother Monster can appreciate a trend. After all, the pre-chorus asks, “What do you wanna wear this spring?/ What do you think is the new thing?/ What do you wanna wear this season?” Oh, Gaga. We thought you’d never ask!.
