The Caricaturist Returns from Atlantis – with Fins and Gills!

I see that the blog has been as active as ever  and that the caricatures have been doing their bit to keep this place busy. Thank you my Dear Caricatures. My special thanks to:

This morning, I found myself bobbing up and down in the swimming pool of Hyatt Regency. I was semi-conscious and dressed in what can best be described an aquatic gear. But what the staff at the hotel truly found surprising was that I had sprouted fins and gills. I guess it comes from spending the last two weeks in the City of Atlantis. The fins and the gills are gradually reducing in size…even the webs that had grown between my fingers are shrinking! This means that I should be able to draw more caricatures soon!

More later…I am still not able to breathe properly in dry air, I need to dunk my head in a water jar to get my oxygen…

See you soon:)

Caricature/Cartoon – Lady Gaga’s Weird Hermaphrodite-ish Outfits & The Spider Colony!

I wouldn’t have caricatured Lady Gaga. Being tone-deaf, I can’t claim to know much about music or music makers. They seem magical to me. They make some sort of sounds, using their voice-boxes and other musical instruments, that people like to listen to. I can’t understand it at all, and so I steer clear of music-makers and music. At best music doesn’t make sense to me, at worst, it gives me a headache! But once in a while, someone like Lady Gaga makes music and then makes news, and then the caricaturist in me wakes up and wonders, “Who was the caricaturist who created her?”

Hermaphrodite or Robotaphrohermit?!

So, this was my take on Ms. Gaga. I didn’t have to do much, as you can see. However, I had to study a lot. I had to know the Lady behind the Gaga. So I went cyber-digging and what I found made me respect this little bundle of sound waves. She’s just 24…and she’s already made enough waves of all kinds!

Lady Gaga – Her Biography

Lady Gaga was born Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta on March 28, 1986. Her first album was released in 2008, when she was 22…and so her rise to fame can be considered no less than meteoric! In this album (called “The Fame”) were two songs “Just Dance” and “Poker Face,” which made people lose their heads. This album got six Grammy Award Nominations and won two of them. According to what I read in Wikipedia,

“In May 2010, Time magazine included Gaga in its annual Time 100 list of the most influential people in the world.”

In 2009, she released her second album called “The Fame Monster.” In 2009 she also did two tours “The Fame Ball Tour” and the “Monster Ball Tour”.

Lady Gaga – Her Name

Her name was given to her by a word processing software (MS Word?). Radio Ga Ga a song by Queen was auto-corrected to Lady Gaga. Now that’s interesting. She’s a true techno-kid…all chipped-up and plugged-in!

Lady Gaga – A Hermaphrodite?

Is Lady Gaga a hermaphrodite?
To understand this question, you first need to know what the term Hermaphrodite means.

Here’s a definition:

“A person born with diminished sexual organs of both sexes as a result of a genetic anomaly, and therefore has physical sexual traits and characteristics in between that of a man or a woman. The hermaphroditic individual is usually incapable of reproduction.”

(Source: www.ifsha.org/glossary.htm)
So is she…a Herm…whatever, I mean!

  • Lady Gaga looks like a woman – I think.
  • Lady Gaga kisses Madonna like a man – I think.
  • Lady Gaga dresses like a robot – I think.

Thus,
I think she isn’t a hermaphrodite, but a robotaphrohermit! Now, what does that mean? Go Figure!
(But please note that Ms. Gaga has confirmed that she is a woman!)

In fact, when she was compared to Christina Aguilera, Christina Aguilera raised similar doubts about Lady Gaga’s true gender. It’s quite possible that the whole gender thing was started by Christina and it was driven by professional envy!

Lady Gaga – Her weird outfits

The Lady’s crazy outfits made her think that she suffered from a rare disease called Lupus – or so they say.
See her pictures here.
She almost fainted in one of her shows and this led to speculations about her having Lupus but it’s also speculated that her outfit might’ve been responsible for it.

Lady Gaga – Tattoos

She’s tattooed all-over. If you want to check out her tattoos, you must visit this link here.

Do you think she competes with our Tattooed and the Pierced one?

Other things:

  • She’s left-handed.
  • She’s a Gay Icon.
  • She used to be on drugs and she’s confessed.

“Gaga confessed to the Times that she recently suffered from heart palpitations and was forced to call emergency services in Tokyo as she was having trouble breathing.”
