V MAGAZINE “New York!”
Sure, Rents Are Insane, There’s Nowhere to Party, Everyone Hates Everyone, The Subway’s A Nightmare, It’s Way Too Hot, It’s Way too Cold, The Knicks Suck, and Smokes Cost $13 a Pack. But the Big Apple is Still the Best Damn City in the Universe, And the Only Place Where You Can Be Anything You Want to Be When You Want to Be It. These 26 People Are Making The City Their Own Way.”

Quote from editor STEPHEN GAN:
“Just as the Statue of Liberty was France’s gift to America, Gaga is, to us, New York’s greatest gift to pop culture and fashion. She embodies everything V is about, and is also a beacon of the city’s creativity and hope. Exactly one year after her first V cover (the first fashion magazine cover she was on), we decided to do the NEW YORK issue, and she was the first person who came to mind to represent our great city. In the year that’s passed, she has become a bonafide genius and we can safely declare her our muse. Above all, a New York issue should celebrate people who’ve done great things. We at V are grateful Gaga came along to put the New back in New York!”
