Lady GaGa (also known as Stefani Germanotta) strips off her crazy costumes and makeup to “bare” her soul in a new photo shoot and interview featured on the cover of the upcoming issue of Harper’s Bazaar Magazine (October 2011). Wasn’t GaGa on the cover just a couple of months ago? Oh yes, she was!
GaGa is still wearing makeup, but this time it’s more natural and feminine. This is the new GaGa look. The 25 year-old “Born This Way” singer clearly loves to play with her image and shock everybody with the most outrageous costumes, but she is all about going natural lately – from her Jo Calderone look to this new artsy Ninfa look.
Here are some highlights from Lady GaGa’s Harper’s Bazaar interview:
On her Harper’s Bazaar cover look: “Don’t you think that what’s on the cover of a magazine is quite artificial? 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?”
On confidence and body image: “I’m very free-spirited. Even when I was a kid, I used to run around naked with the babysitter, driving her crazy. I do yoga, I do Bikram and I run, and I eat really healthy. You know, my work sort of feeds me. I keep in shape by working hard.”
On being a workaholic: “I work 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.”
On her alone time: “When you’re alone as much as I am, you become accustomed to your solitude and embrace it. 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.”
