Lady Gaga seems to be always ready to go out. I sometimes think she even sleeps in those super-high platforms and outrageous costumes. But I have to admit I’m wrong because sometimes Gaga goes natural. She bares it all (including makeup!) for the October 2011 cover of Harper’s Bazaar and looks… weird…
Lady Gaga goes makeup and even clothes-free for the Harper’s Bazaar cover and pics inside the magazine. And while we’re quite accustomed to see her nude seeing her fresh face is shocking. No, she’s pretty and looks like a normal girl but is that really the Gaga we want to see?
Speaking candidly while being interviewed by Harper’s Bazaar Lady Gaga shared her thoughts on naturalness and invention, solitude and creativeness. She also explained how fashion influences her life.
Lady Gaga on naturalness: “I don’t really view it as ‘natural,’” she explains. “I think that artifice is the new reality. It’s more about just being honest and sincere to the core of what you do. Whether I’m wearing lots of makeup or no makeup, I’m always the same person inside.”
Lady Gaga on invention: “There’s this idea that it’s all natural, but everything’s been staged to look natural. It is also an invention. It’s just that my inventions are different. I often get asked about my artifice, but isn’t fashion based on the idea that we can create a fantasy?”
Lady Gaga on trying surfing: “I fell off a lot in the beginning,” she says, “but one of the surfers said to me, ‘Now that you can stand up, just look into the future and enjoy the ride.’ I thought that was an interesting metaphor about life.”
Lady Gaga on solitude: “When you’re alone as much as I am,” she observes, “you become accustomed to your solitude and embrace it.” Of late, she’s been immersing herself in plays. “I love John Patrick Shanley. And I’ve been reading some books that I loved when I was in theater school, like Bertolt Brecht. Those books really changed my life.”
Lady Gaga on working too much: “[…] about 16 to 20 hours a day. And when I’m alone, I write, I imagine, I create things, and I decide how I want to do my future performances. I don’t take much time off.”
Lady Gaga on being crazy all her life: “Even when I was a kid, I used to run around naked with the babysitter, driving her crazy.”
Lady Gaga on sticking to certain fashionable items, her favorites: “There’s this one pair of shoes I’ve had for years, and they cost like $25. I have such an emotional attachment to the shoes that every time I see them, I can hear the fans and feel the bass coming through the bottom of the stage.”
