IS IT ON BETWEEN MADONNA AND LADY GAGA???!!!: MADONNA may have insulted LADY GAGA during a press conference yesterday while hyping a movie she directed.

At the recent Venice Film Festival press conference someone asked her about the admiration she receives, and brought up Gaga as a fan. Madonna supposedly said, quote, "I have no comment on her obsessions related to me, because I do not know if it is based on something profound or superficial."

Now the reason I say 'supposedly' is because the French newspaper that reported this doesn't offer up any further proof that those were the words that came out of her mouth. Madonna's rep doesn't seem to think they were. She says, quote, "I do not remember those exact words coming from Madonna at the press conference."

COVER SHOT - LADY GAGA WITHOUT MAKEUP: Not only does LADY GAGA grace the cover of the new Harper's Bazaar, but she does so unpainted!!! In fact, Lady G does entire photo shoot sans makeup ...

Inside the magazine, she says, quote, "Whether I'm wearing lots of makeup or no makeup, I'm always the same person inside. It's more about just being honest and sincere to the core of what you do."

Props for her bravery. She's really not afraid to look stupid or unsexy, as long as it serves her "art". Having said that ... ahhhhhh, my eyes!!!
