I’ve been going about this all wrong. If I’d wanted to snag a sweet editorial gig or a column in a monthly magazine, perhaps I should have become a pop star first. After all, that’s how Lady Gaga did it.
On May 17, the Fame Monster will serve as global guest editor-in-chief for all editions of Metro, a free news daily usually available at your local subway. Gaga will edit Metro editions in 20 countries from the newspaper’s central news desk in London.
She’ll also contribute a feature article and will comment on stories in the issue and contribute sidebars.
All this in addition to the monthly column she’s got in V magazine.
Metro is also running a contest where a lucky reader will be chosen as Gaga’s editorial assistant. Details on the contest will be in the April 18 edition of the paper. I won’t lie to y’all—I’m thinking of going for it. Ha!
