Derek Blasberg talks to Lady Gaga in the May issue of Harper's Bazaar, which hits newsstands on April 26th, and reveals a real doozy. The Born This Way singer tells the mag that she believes that Alexander McQueen has been working through her since his suicide. "I think he planned the whole thing: Right after he died, I wrote Born This Way, ultimately to the exact day of the one-year anniversary of McQueen's death. When I hear that, I knew he planned the whole damn thing. I didn't even write the fu**king song. He did!" Oh, dear. Does anyone have the heart to tell Gaga that this is also called a coincidence? Check out more of Terry Richardson's shoot in our Gallery.

If Olivier Theyskens, Marc Jacobs and Tom Ford can take their shirts off, why not, uh, Eddie Borgo? The 32-year-old jewelry designer appears in the April 2011 issue of Interview as we've never seen him before. He tells the mag that his Spring 2011 collection was inspired by Madonna's controversial 1992 book Sex, adding: "I found it really liberating when I read the book in high school." Gotcha!

At Monday's MoMA premiere of The Conspirator, an Abe Lincoln assassination flick, hosted by The Wall Street Journal and Piaget, Chic gabbed with the thoroughly modern and freshly-dyed Chris Benz.
The hair! You’ve gone neon pink!
I don't have any tattoos or piercings, so my one thing is my hair. I was getting tired of the multicolor look, so I decided it was all about one bright color for spring. It's high maintenance compared to a multicolor look.
Have you ever considered dyeing your facial hair?
I have, but I think it would be too much work. Bleach on your face is probably not where it's at.
What's new, besides the bubblegum-hued coif?
I'm working to finish up resort so I can go away for the weekend!
Where do you plan to go?
I always feel like going to L.A. in the springtime for some reason, and driving around in a convertible. I think I'll have an L.A. moment come May.
What else are you up to this spring?
I'm an industry mentor at SCAD, so I've got two more trips planned there. It's amazing in Savannah—there's Spanish moss everywhere, and the buildings are all falling apart. I'm mentoring eight students there.
Is it like a parent-child relationship between designer and student?
It's very emotional. I need to push them in certain directions and pull back in other ways. My job is to bring a dose of practicality to what they're doing. They're isolated in Savannah, so they're not interning with Donna Karan or anything. I have to tell them that they'd never actually be able to do certain things; there's no such thing as hand painting on a mass scale. I try to keep it funny, though.
If you swapped placed with your SCAD students, what harebrained schemes would you be into?
There's so much beautiful decay in Savannah; a sense of Wabi-Sabi. So I'd probably be burying my collection for a month and then digging it up.
