Leave it to supersize star Lady Gaga to break magazine records. Billboard reports that the larger-than-life pop singer currently graces the cover of the world’s largest magazine.
Art magazine Visionaire’s LARGER THAN LIFE issue is an astounding 5 feet by 7 feet, and features Lady Gaga on the back and cover. The over-the-top issue has an over-the-top price to match: it runs $1,500!
(The less-impressive standard size (36 inches by 49.48 inches) will cost Monsters just $375.)
Shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, the cover features Lady Gaga as an oily-looking mermaid with a gooey tail.
Gaga says of the image, “There is no oil too thick as to destroy the imagination."
This giant issue is apparently the largest ever; according to Visionaire, issue #61 has been certified by the Guinness World Records company as being the largest magazine ever produced.
While it’s the largest, the $1,500 issue is shockingly not the most expensive! According to the Guinness World Records website, art publication Nomenus Quarterly went for $6,500 an issue in 2009. (Ironically, the ridiculously expensive magazine’s website currently features an article about Occupy Wall Street.)
Gaga fans in the 1 percent can purchase Visionaire at the Visionaire Gallery in New York City and at visionaireworld.com.
