gagavcolumn230.jpg Lady Gaga is now a columnist for V Magazine, and the pop star's first piece will be featured in the summer issue of the glossy, which hits newsstands May 12.

Gaga tweeted, "I begin next month as a Fashion+Art Columnist for @VMagazine," and the magazine confirmed that Gaga "will be gracing us with the presence of her pen [as] she weighs in on all things fashion throughout her multiverse."

Gaga and the mag will also hold a running contest which allows fans to submit drawings of the singer, and the best one will appear as her author headshot for the column. All media are welcome, and the magazine adds, "We are asking all artists, creators and little monsters to submit illustrations of our new columnist dressed in her most studious ensemble."
