Lady Gaga poses nude with tiny men crawling all over her body in her new fragrance ad!

You knew Lady Gaga’s perfume ad was going to be a bit shocking.

Today we’re getting our first look at the promotional pictures for her new perfume, Fame. The 26-year-old singer posted the picture on her Twitter account, saying ‘Photo by STEVEN KLEIN. The First Ever Black Eau de Parfum. Model: Lady Gaga.’

Before she revealed the ad, she explained why she was feeling nervous about sharing the new picture.

‘I won’t lie I’m a bit nervous. its been a while since i’ve shared some work with you. But i’m so proud of Steven+I, we really did not sleep!’

In the new ad, Gaga is seen lying on her side, nude, with small men crawling all over her body.

Her new perfume is a black liquid that goes on clear, and it will be released next month.

Renato Semerari, president of Coty Beauty, said: ‘She is an artist that is never satisfied with the status quo – she always has this way of challenging everybody and trying to do something more, something different.

‘She has her own ideas and very often they’re very interesting and challenging…really, she’s not the one who says, “It’s OK, let’s move on and turn the page.” She’s always thinking, “Can we do more?”

‘This is a very stimulating partnership; and she’s pushed us with her ideas, we’ve come with our own ideas – and the combination of the two is very valuable.’

Coty hailed Gaga as ‘zeitgeist in a bottle’ and are delighted with her innovation.

Bernd Beetz, chief executive officer of Coty Inc., said: ‘Lady Gaga joins a legendary cast of talent for whom Coty has created scents.

‘Gaga’s launch represents my personal credo brought to life….Innovate or die! Absolutely everything about this launch is innovative, from the bottle, to the juice, to the lady herself….She’s zeitgeist in a bottle.’

Gaga explained the fragrance’s name relates to her belief that anyone can have fame.

She told WWD: ‘Fame is an illusion – if you really want it, anyone can have it.’

I have to admit, I’m really interested to find out what this perfume smells like. I don’t see myself buying it – but I would like to see (smell) what all the buzz is about!

FIRST LOOK! Blake Lively’s NEW perfume ad for Gucci!

Call me crazy, but someone over at Gucci gave Blake Lively a nose job! That is 100% NOT her real nose! Either Blake’s had a nose job, or someone gave her a photoshop nose job. Either way, that’s not the real deal.

Two weeks ago Blake Lively was given a major endorsement by Gucci to promote their new perfume, Gucci Premiere. Rumor has it she insisted on the director of ‘Drive’, Nicolas Winding Refn, to film the commercial for the perfume, which I can’t wait to see!

Blake already models for Chanel, and according to sources, was hand-picked by Karl Lagerfeld himself.

What do you think of her new ad?

Below are some new pictures of Blake leaving her hotel in NYC (with her REAL nose).

FIRST LOOK! Check out Kristen Stewart’s NEW Balenciaga Fragrance ad!

Kristen Stewart is the face of Balenciaga’s newest fragrance, ‘Florabatonica’, and now we have our first look at the beautiful ad!

In an interview with WWD, Stewart admitted she wasn’t sure how to pose for the ads. ”When I first stood there, I was like, ‘OK, do you want me to show the curves of the dress? Do you want me to stand like this? Like that?’ And they were like, ‘Just be comfortable.’”

Along with approving of the futuristic floral ad (shot by famed photographer Steven Meisel), she’s also 100 percent happy with the fragrance.

“There is something natural about it,” the On The Road actress explained. “It’s very alive. I think that as a young person wearing it — considering that I’ve never worn a scent — it kind of puts you on this level of, like, ‘Whoa, check me out.’”

The star also admitted that she was rather nervous to initially smell it. “I’m very lucky that I like the fragrance, because I would have done anything with [Balenciaga designer Nicolas Ghesquière],”she revealed. “And I’m a terrible liar.”

Florabotanica features notes of vetiver, amber and caladium-leaf accord, a (hybrid) rose, carnation and mint accord and is set to be released in September.

I can’t wait to smell the new fragrance! What do you think about the new ad?

Ashton Kutcher’s Popchips ad that everyone’s talking about today.

Everywhere I look this morning, I’m seeing this stupid Popchips ad that stars Ashton Kutcher. What this has to do with Popchips, I’ll never know. It’s not even the slightest bit interesting, OR funny, and seems like a royal waste of money.

Anyway, the reason everyone’s talking about it – is because Ashton appears in “brownface” and apparently it’s offensive. I’m sorry – I think this is taking it waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too far. Offensive? He’s trying (and in all fairness, not succeeding) to be funny. No – it’s not funny, but is it really offensive? C’mon now.

A new “viral campaign” (read: advertisement) for Pop Chips that features Ashton Kutcher impersonating a “Bollywood producer” who’s “looking for the most delicious thing on the planet” has generated a great deal of controversy.

Shortly after the advertisements went online, a number of Twitter users began criticizing the actor and company for using a white actor for the Indian character. Kutcher shakes his head as he speaks and effects a strong accent in the clip. The “brownface” controversy quickly took hold, with prominent Twitter personalities like writer Anil Dash and New York rappers Das Racist (the name existed before their claims) tweeting their disgust with the campaign.

It appears that while the other videos remain online, Pop Chips has pulled down the “Raj” spot in question after the story did not go away. Though the character remains in a compilation video, the individual “Raj” ad is no longer on the Pop Chips YouTube page. You can view part of the clip in the video at the top of this post.

Pop Chips has responded to the criticism with a statement. “The new popchips worldwide dating video and ad campaign featuring four characters was created to provoke a few laughs and was never intended to stereotype or offend anyone. At popchips we embrace all types of shapes, flavors and colors, and appreciate all snackers, no matter their race or ethnicity. We hope people can enjoy this in the spirit it was intended.”

What do you think of the video (below). Do you think it’s offensive?
