When it comes to Lady Gaga, it almost feels like we’ve seen it all. And then she’s photographed by Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin for V magazine, we see more Gaga than ever before, and are instantaneously reminded that’s she’s never going to stop shocking us.
In a teaser photograph tweeted out by the Dutch shutterbug pair, we find an au naturel Mother Monster under a mountain of wavy chestnut blonde hair wearing little-to-no makeup, with one arm covering her chest, and the other hand tactfully masking her crotch. Much like we enjoy her stripped-down performances, it’s refreshing to see a more natural Gaga, without all the bells, whistles, masks, meat, etc.
The spread is a surefire way to increase buzz about her next album, ARTPOP, which currently has a ‘leaked’ video out that was also lensed by Inez & Vindooh. The unsurprisingly outré short provides a snippet of her single “Burqua,” while she stares into the camera and begins licking…. we’re not exactly sure what. Watch the video for some creepy kicks and view the photograph below to take in the pop star in the buff.
