Lady Gaga Covers Harper’s Bazaar May 2011 Edition
After covering the Vogue March issue, Lady Gaga is now covering the May issue of the Harper’s Bazaar magazine which is set to hit the newsstands on April 26.She was photographed by Terry Richardson.
About her new look ,the 25 year old star ,explain us her unusual choice “Well, first of all, they’re not prosthetics. They’re my bones. They’ve always been inside of me, but I have been waiting for the right time to reveal to the universe who I truly am. They come out when I’m inspired.”It’s a performance-art piece. I have never, ever encouraged my fans or anyone to harm themselves, nor do I romanticize masochism. Body modification is part of the overarching analysis of ‘Born This Way’. But my fans know me. They would never hurt themselves. And if they have hurt themselves, they come to me and say, ‘Gaga, I want to stop, and your music helps me want to stop. Your music makes me want to love myself.’ I am in no way promoting sadomasochism or masochism.”
In the magazine interview, the singer hit Born This Way makes revelations about drug use, about plastic surgery “I have never had plastic surgery, and there are many pop singers who have. I think that promoting insecurity in the form of plastic surgery is infinitely more harmful than an artistic expression related to body modification. And how many models and actresses do you see on magazine covers who have brand-new faces and have had plastic surgery, while I myself have never had any plastic surgery? I am an artist, and I have the ability and the free will to choose the way the world will envision me.”
About her career she said “I had all these No. 1 records, and I had sold all these albums, and it was sort of this turning point: Am I going to try and embrace Hollywood and assimilate to that culture?” she remembers thinking. However, despite being drawn to this popular culture she eventually realized that her personality is not tailored for such a lifestyle: “I ran furiously back to New York, to my old apartment, and I hung out with my friends, and I went to the same bars.”
