Singer Lady Gaga, who is known for her theatrical make-up, has now gone 'au natural' for the October issue of Harper's Bazaar. The Born This Way star has posed for the cover without wearing make-up and has sported a straight and simple hairdo. But the popstar does not really view it as natural.
Speaking to the magazine, Lady Gaga says, "I don't really view it as 'natural.' 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."
The Born This Way hitmaker thinks that the cover of a magazine is quite artificial. Lady Gaga says, "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?"
However, Lady Gaga has graced the cover of Harper's Bazaar in April this year and this is the second she is appearing on it. Another interesting news is that the Bad Romance hitmaker becomes the first artist to appear on a black and white cover of the mag in the last 20 years. The singer tweeted, "In 1 hour I will reveal my new cover on the september issue of BAZAAR. Its the first Black and White Cover printed in 20 YEARS!"
