People clothes and now this? LADY GAGA must be going off the deep end if she’s more than willing to go sans makeup for Harper’s Bazaar. First time we’ve ever seen Mother Monster look this…this…naked:

Hollywood gossip websites were hard pressed to take their eyes of Gaga‘s au natural state in the magazine’s latest issue. Somehow, the lack of face paint, false eyelashes, headpieces, veils, masks, turquoise hair, and other Gaga paraphernalia only served to make the world’s most powerful celebrity look like plain old Stefani Germanotta.

“I don’t really view it as ‘natural’. I think that artifice is the new reality.”

Lady Gaga defended her photo shoot. Typical Gaga-ism, but strangely enough, quite true. Just look at the proliferation of reality shows and the surgically enhanced celebrities that populate them.

“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.”"

Still, we aren’t quite used to viewing Lady Gaga this way…like she were one of the “Next Top Model” hopefuls this season. For shock value, it seems very effective though. Let’s just hope she doesn’t do this too often. We wants our Mother Monster back.
