Rolling Stone: Lady Gaga locks and loads( Rolling Stone )
What better way to follow up your last Rolling Stone cover, which had you surrounded by strategically placed bubbles? Well, if you're Lady Gaga, you grab a thong and the machine-gun bra from your "Alejandro" video and take aim at a military theme and tell the magazine, "When I wake up in the morning, I feel just like any other insecure 24-year-old girl ... then I say, [bleep], you're Lady Gaga, you get up and walk the walk today." We're sure this photo shoot had absolutely nothing to do with the hot-buttoned profile of Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal that eventually led to the military leader's resignation.
