It seems as though every day, Lady Gaga‘s global domination just grows and grows. In her latest column for V Magazine (yes, Mother Monster is a journalist now), the pop singer turns her focus to the media, specifically New York Times fashion critic Cathy Horyn, in an attack on the method of criticism employed by writers today. I’m sure that the article-which implies that Horyn’s cattier method of reporting is perhaps dated-couldn’t possibly have stemmed from a reaction to the recent article in which Horyn attacks Gaga’s “The Edge of Glory” video and condemns Donatella Versace for her pride over the atelier’s featured archives. While critiquing the NYT reporter, Gaga goes on to deem style rookie blogger Tavi Gevinson as “the future of journalism”, a statement which I’m sure made the tween writer’s high school peers green with envy.


Gaga’s article will go live today on V Magazine’s website but a previeew is available on WWD. What do you think? Is the future of journalism in the soul of a 14-year old blogger, or could it be that the established Horyn is getting a lashing from the diva for dissing her Versace bondage? Hopefully this comes to a head in a full on cat fight at the upcoming NYFW. Keep the cameras ready people, this could get sexy.
