Lady Gaga takes the cover of 944's January 2010 Vanguard issue. Martine Bury, Editor-in-Chief of the magazine, was so impressed by the 23-year-old sensation that he said the magazine could ONLY pick her for the cover.
“Lady Gaga has liberated music and fashion the way David Bowie and other Brit Glam rockers did in the seventies - using costume, artifice and drama while bending gender norms and conventions. But she also one ups everyone with her phenomenal vocal talent and truly unique aesthetic,” Martine said.
“She’s way ahead of her time and the only universal artist to truly break ground and provoke thought since Madonna.”
