Lady Gaga graces Harper's Bazaar's May cover, and in the interview, the provocative pop star opens up about her body, fashion statements, her stand on plastic surgery, and more.
See below for some highlights!
On getting 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. I am an artist, and I have the ability and the free will to choose the way the world will envision me.”
On feeling pressured to move to Los Angeles:
“I had all these number-one 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? I put my toe in that water, and it was a Kegel-exercise vaginal reaction where I clenched and had to retract immediately. 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.”
Hmmm. Interesting metaphor! The May issue of Harper's Bazaar hits newsstands April 26.
