Lady Gaga has nowhere to hide in the latest issue of Harper’s Bazaar. She strips off the artifice of her outrageous persona in dramatic photos. Well, she does keep the hair extensions, but other than that no makeup!
She actually looks pretty good, exuding a kind of hippie-chick radiance.
“Whether I’m wearing lots of makeup or no makeup, I’m always the same person inside,’ said the singer, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta.
The outrageous wardrobe she says is just part of her art.
“I don’t really view it as ‘natural,’ she tells the magazine.

“I think that artifice is the new reality. It’s more about just being honest and sincere to the core of what you do.
“I think what has been lovely about my relationship with the public is that they expect something unexpected from me,” she says.
But naked means more to Gaga than going without makeup.
“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.”
