Cover Art: Lady Gaga's Magazine Covers


There's no denying it: Lady Gaga is a money maker. And in the world of magazine publishing, where sales are dropping, one of the biggest tickets to success is having the ultimate Fame Monster on your cover.

While smaller publications end up using basic press photos to create a cover, larger magazines shoot some interesting images. Take, for example, the controversial Q cover where she showed a bulge in her pants to confront rumors that she was really a man. Or the provocative Vogue Hommes Japan covers that were shot by Nick Knight; these featured “Jo Calderone," Gaga’s male drag alter ego. In both cases those covers garnered worldwide press, which is practically gold in the publishing world.

So with that in mind, here are 35 covers from 2009 to today.
