I want your ugly
I want your disease
I want your everything
As long as it's free
I want your love
Love, Love, Love
I want your love

I want your drama
The touch of your hand
I want your leather studded
Kiss in the sand
I want your love
Love, Love, Love
I want your love

I want your horror
I want your design
Cause you're a criminal
As long as you're mine
I want your love
Love, Love, Love
I want your love

I want your psycho
Your vertigo stick
Want you in my rear window
Baby it's sick
I want your love
Love, Love, Love
I want your love

You know that I want you
And you know that I need you (Cause I'm a free ****, baby)
I want a bad, bad romance

I want your loving
and I want your revenge
You and me could write a bad romance (Ohh)
I want your loving
All your lovers revenge
You and me could write a bad romance

Ohh, caught in a bad romance...

Lady Gaga - Bad Romance

Part 8 of 12
A series of self-portraits featuring make-up designs inspired by Lady Gaga. Each make-up design was drawn on paper first, and then replicated using different make-up accessories/tools.

Used in this image: NYC liquid eyeliner in black glitter (used for both the make-up and the nails) and Color Collection red eyeshadow.


This one has a story behind it actually... I racked my brain for days trying to come up with a design for this song. And then it came to me.

I knew that I wanted to use my ex Pleas (aka Violet) as the inspiration for this. I started thinking of dramatic make-up, since this was one of the reasons I first became attracted to him. I then remembered Kabuki, and the make-up designs they use during Kabuki performances. Funnily enough, "Kabuki" stands for "Sing", "dance", and "skill".

So, the design is reminiscent of Kabuki designs, while wearing a wig that I bought while I was dating him, and a shirt that reflects what he used to wear.

Mind you, this is not to say I want a bad romance with him now. I'm VERY happy with my hubby, and I want nothing to do with that other lying sack of shit. This song represents how I USED to be when I was interested in him.
