Lady Gaga Covers Harper’s Bazaar, Talks Plastic Surgery, Influencing Her Fans & Misconceptions

0

The eccentric yet clever, some may even say genius, that is Lady Gaga graces the cover of Harper’s Baazar May issue. The singer discusses her influence on her younger audience, her views toward plastic surgery, and the many misconceptions people believe about her.

On Influencing Her Fan’s Appearance/Behavior
“It’s artistic expression,” Gaga says. “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.’ In the video, we use Rico, who is tattooed head to toe [including a skull on his face]. He was born that way. Although he wasn’t born with tattoos, it was his ultimate destiny to become the man he is today.”

On 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.”

On Her Longevity In The Business
“You can quote me on this: People love you when they think you won’t be around for very long, and people hate you when they can’t get rid of you. But I’m not going anywhere.”

Gaga always take such interesting photos. Nothing she wears surprises me anymore, I bet she doesn’t even own a pair of sneakers. You can continue reading over at Harper’s Bazaar.
