It's Not Vogue, But It's Something: Lady Gaga Graces Cover of Arthritis Magazine

It's Not Vogue, But It's Something: Lady Gaga Graces Cover of Arthritis Magazine

While the move is a bit out of left field, it actually brings awareness to an important conversation.

Lady Gaga has appeared on some pretty cool magazine covers in her time: Vogue, Vanity Fair... even this really cool publication called OUT (look it up, you'll like it). But this time around, Gaga's stepping away from zines focused on art and fashion and instead tackling chronic joint pain, with a stint on the glossy cover of Arthritis.

Get your giggles out now --we, too, laughed at first, after looking at this leaked image of the cover, featuring a smiling Gaga next to the bold question: "Love to garden? Experts with arthritis tell how they did it!"

Upon further reflection, though, we couldn't help but admire Gaga--her superstar celebrity status is already bringing attention to a cause not exactly at the forefront of the greater cultural conversation. And who better to advocate for those struggling with chronic pain than Mother Monster, who herself has struggled severely with joint pain in the past?

I was so overwhelmed by the empathy, confessions & personal stories of chronic pain in response to my previous post I thought what the hell. Maybe I should just share some of my personal remedies I've acquired over the past five years. Everyone's body and condition is different U should consult w ure Dr. but what the heck here we go! When my body goes into a spasm one thing I find really helps is infrared sauna. I've invested in one. They come in a large box form as well as a low coffin-like form and even some like electric blankets! You can also look around your community for a infrared sauna parlor or homeopathic center that has one. I combine this treatment with marley silver emergency blankets (seen in the photo) that trap in the heat and are very cheap, reusable and effective for detox as well as weight loss! In order to not overheat my system and cause more inflammation i follow this with either a VERY cold bath, ice bath (if u can stand it, it's worth it) or the most environmentally savvy way is to keep many reusable cold packs in the freezer ( or frozen peas' n carrots'!) and pack them around the body in all areas of pain. Hope this helps some of you, it helps me to keep doing my passion, job and the things I love even on days when I feel like I can't get out of bed. Love you and thank you for all your positive messages.

While the issue isn't yet online, we're sure she'll be talking in-depth about that notorious hip injury at length.
