How to Draw the Caricature of Lady Gaga & The Story of Bad Romance!

Lady Gaga (yes the very same lady who’s entangled in a Bad Romance) is an extremely interesting and an unbelievably creative person.

She is a magician, a dress designer, a hairdresser, a lyricist…and of course, she is a woman trying hard to prove that she’s indeed one. If you ask me, she is one of those amazingly talented control-freaks who don’t even want to leave their caricatures to chance – they want to do them themselves! (Remember Ozzy Osbourne?)

Anyone who’s ever looked at Lady Gaga would know that there’s no caricaturist in the world who could do a better job of caricaturing her, than the lady herself. However, I made the attempt, and now I am here to discuss how you too can draw Lady Gaga’s caricature. (And no – you don’t stop at making her portrait!)

Here’s the caricature under discussion.

Caricaturing the Eyes of Lady Gaga:

Lady Gaga’s eyes are characterized by the kohl she puts around them! You’ve got to load her eyelids and eyelashes with black paint to get the look right. Also stretch those eyelashes to exaggerate them. Don’t change the basic almond shape of her eyes.

Read about “Caricaturing the Eyes” here.

Caricaturing the Lips of Lady Gaga:

Lady Gaga has thicker than usual lips (which go well with her slightly heavy yet chubby face.) Note that I’ve drawn her with an open mouth, which helps you see her teeth. Her teeth are slightly crooked and I’ve maintained that lack of symmetry in the drawing.

Read about “Caricaturing the Lips and the Mouth” here.

(If I were drawing the caricature of a man, I’d treat the teeth differently (they’d be exaggerated to add more humor to the treatment.) However, while drawing the caricatures of women – ensure that their caricatures continue to look pretty:-))

Caricaturing the Hair of Lady Gaga:

Ah! This is where I had to compete with Ms. Gaga herself. I selected what I call her “Candy Floss with Noodles” hairstyle. The size of her coiffure was big enough but I did exaggerate it a bit. The cobwebs were added for the storyline.

(Read about “Caricaturing the Forehead, the Hairline, and the Hair” here.)
Storyline?
Well. Since Ms. Gaga had done a great job of caricaturing herself, I had to go do something extra to exaggerate her hairstyle, and so I thought of the spiders and the cobwebs. Whenever Lady Gaga discards a wig, the space on the wig is auctioned away to the spiders that want to move in to this “premium” location!

Well…
So in came the spiders and their webs, and of course the decorations added by the property dealers along with the prize car!

And Ms. Gaga was decked up and ready to give the other singers a run for their money!

Before I wave goodbye, here’s an interesting bit about her current hit “Bad Romance”.

The Theme of Bad Romance by Lady Gaga – A Verbal Caricature:

Bad Romance is a bad-bad song that begins with the abduction of Lady Gaga by some super-models. These super-models, who probably are about to slide into middle age and hence into oblivion, dream up a new way to make money. They kidnap Lady Gaga, bathe her in a white bathtub, and then in her inebriated condition attempt to auction her off to the Russian Mafia. (Note the Russian connection in all such deals, and also note the marked absence of the Italian Mafia from this whole show.)

While the Russian men sit around with their electronic bidding machines, Lady Gaga seductively walks towards them and then selects the one with a golden chin guard (guess he wore it because he expected Lady Gaga to slap him) to do a provocative lap-dance for him. Now this all is hogwash, because after he becomes the highest bidder, she roasts him alive by activating her pyrotechnic bra. The point to be noted here is the Lady Gaga remains unscathed…and probably vanishes with the auction money, and shares the booty with the models who had kidnapped her…because it was all staged!

But that part wasn’t there in the video that I watched, and so I believe that the video was edited!  If anyone has access to the unedited video of the song Bad Romance , please let me know, because I am dying to hear the end of the story.

BTW, I wonder if the Russian Men would have bid at all if she had worn her meat dress to the auction?

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

(If you are interested in  “How to Draw Lady Gaga’s Caricature” and reading a verbal caricature on her “Bad Romance”, click here. – Updated: September 15, 2010)

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.”
