The Lady Gaga cover of the new Q Magazine has been banned in it's full visual form in the U.S. due to what Janet Jackson's PR firm would possibly have called a 'glove malfunction'.
In the land of the free it seems there's allowable boob and non-allowable boob and Q285's cover is a textbook case of too much lower boob. Certain U.S. chains have said they will stock Q285 only if the offending area is covered up, also expressing some concerns over "crotch grabbing". New York State law also doesn't permit showing anything below the nipple.
Q have also been asked to ensure the imported issues are sealed in a bag due to the contents of the 100 Most Shocking Moments in Music feature, whilst other chains are yet to give their approval to stock the issue. Some independent magazine stockists have been happy to run with the cover in it's full glory.
We can't help wonder what Lady Gaga herself would make of this turn of events, given her prophetic quote, standing at the start of the Q photo shoot with a dildo in her hand "It'd be a real f**king story, right"...
