The Cut has an excerpt from Lady Gaga's second V column, and they also have a fake excerpt from a fake V column. Can you figure out which one is the real Gaga? Option one: "The art of my heart, of my truest self, is not a wig or an eye liner or a pair of platform patent leather boots from a stripper shop in the Lower East Side." And option two: "In this lies one of many books in the Bible of Fashion: in order for the FANTASY OF YOU to become the REALITY OF YOU, you must commit to the fantasy as wholeheartedly as you commit to your humanness." Both ridiculous, but the real one is the latter. [The Cut]
