Lady Gaga's Little Sister: I Support the Spectacle

She’s a recent high school graduate with porcelain skin, an enviously thick fringe and heavy-lidded eyes, but Natali Germanotta isn’t the next Hollywood ingénue; she’s Lady Gaga‘s little sister.

With a pop culture résumé that can be summed up with a cameo in the 2009 “Telephone” video and accompanying her sister to this year’s CFDAs, the Parsons fashion student says she isn’t capitalizing on big sis’s big connections. Going to school “is about learning what you need for your career,” she says in the September issue of Teen Vogue.

And while Germanotta isn’t interested in raiding her sister’s closet — “Some of the stuff she wears I’d be like, ‘No, never.'” — the 19-year-old fully encourages the spectacle. “She asked me, ‘Should I dress really conservative and look not like myself, or should I do it over-the-top and freak everybody out?,'” she recalls of helping her sis dress for her recent high school graduation ceremony. “And I was like, ‘The latter, definitely the latter.'” (For the record, Gaga did not disappoint, opting for a rhinestone-encrusted bodysuit and beekeeper headgear.)

So does having the megastar as an older sister have any benefits? “Whenever I wear something crazy and my dad gives me a hard time, I say, ‘Well, at least I’m not walking out on the street with red pasties,’ and he’ll be like, ‘Good point.'”

I can only imagine their parents just shaking their heads, and thinking, “I love my children. I love my children. I love my children.” Oh, well, they could be a lot worse, and at least Gaga is successful.

I am a big fan of Lady Gaga, and it is great that her sister is supportive but at the same time being an individual. To be in the Parsons school, she must have some skills. Aim high, Natali!

ugliness runs in the Germanotta family

I am sure she got into that school b/c of who her sister is…

Tiffany, really? and how are you so sure of that? I know this is really a stretch, but maybe just maybe she studied hard and is talented enough to deserve being accepted? hhhmmm… must be nice to know everything and use it to spread the negativity (note the sarcasm)….
