Would You Buy Your Kid a Lady Gaga Doll?
Lady Gaga is designing a doll in her likeness for Mattel's Monster High line.
Lady Gaga has been on a roll lately. First, there was her amazing rendition of the National Anthem at the Super Bowl. Then she killed it with her David Bowie tribute at Monday night's Grammy Awards. Now comes the news that the pop star is designing her own doll for Mattel's Monster High line.
I suppose it's fitting, as Gaga is the Mother Monster to her fans, whom she sweetly calls "little monsters." And who doesn't want to buy their kid a Mother Monster doll?
Gaga and her costume designer (and sister) Natali Germanotta are designing the doll together, with the goal of encouraging girls to be "true to their most unique selves."
"I like to live by a motto for myself: 'Be the most vulnerable me I can be,'" Germanotta—who designs all of Gaga's costumes— told told Refinery29. "And through the collaboration, I feel like the doll really represents showing your unique self and being the most vulnerable you. There is really no better way to live. It can sometimes be scary, but at the same time it is very fulfilling."
This doll is the first project between Monster High and Lady Gaga's Born This Way Foundation, which is committed to promoting empowerment and acceptance among young people. All proceeds of the doll's sales will benefit the foundation to inspire a kinder, more accepting and braver world.
While the design of the doll is still strictly under wraps, Mattel did release the image of the silhouette and said it will be in the likeness of a "familiar Lady Gaga persona."
We couldn't help but notice how much it resembles the look Gaga rocked at the 2011 Grammys (see above).
