Lady Gaga Goes Sans Makeup for 'Harper's Bazaar'

She’s generally all about costumes and alter egos, but in the October issue of Harper’s Bazaar, Lady Gaga proves she’s just as fierce without all the props. “Whether I’m wearing lots of makeup or no makeup, I’m always the same person inside,” she tells the magazine, posing barefaced on the cover. “I think what has been lovely about my relationship with the public is that they expect something unexpected from me.”

And despite managing to consistently shock fans and critics with her getups — she even sported protrusions on her cheekbones last time she graced the cover of the mag — when it comes to her own self-image, she says she’s quite comfortable in her own skin. “I’m very free-spirited,” she says. “Even when I was a kid, I used to run around naked with the babysitter, driving her crazy.”

When the star isn’t running around the world or making a statement on the dance floor, she stays in shape with other activities. “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.”

I love Lady GaGa and the message(s) she is sending to people…everything she represents. However, I’m sad to see that although she is just two years my senior (I was born in ’88, she was born in ’86), she looks old for her age. I suspect it’s from her hard partying and “occasional drug use,” but nevertheless she is a beauty. :D

That’s my $0.02.
