We know, we know—we've been inundating you with coverage of V Magazine's September issue. But, c'mon, it's the "New York!" issue and it's just so damn good. The cover hints at the radness to come: Lady Gaga poses as the Statue of Liberty alongside Marc Jacobs, overlaid with a bubblegum interpretation of the iconic V by artist Dan Colen (one of four different covers from NYC artists). Timed exactly one year after Gaga's first V cover, we think the singer has never looked better, continuing the fresh-er faced image she first revealed in this month's Vanity Fair. The mag, which hits newsstands today, also has a hit-list of notable NYers like Mark Ronson, Liya Kebede, Lady Bunny, Marina Abramovic, and Jake Shears from the Scissor Sisters. EIC Stephen Gan says, "Gaga is, to us, New York's greatest gift to pop culture and fashion...we at V are grateful Gaga came along to put the New back in New York." And you'll be grateful after sneaking-a-peek at our mini-slideshow. If you don't run out and get a copy, we may question your status as a true New Yorker.
