Lady Gaga lets it all hang out in the latest issue of V Magazine. The singer is photographed wearing a red sequined jacket and unbuttoned jeans as she covers herself with one hand and holds up the undone jeans with another. Inside the magazine, Gaga goes completely topless while wearing a tattered white tank top.
The singer talks to the magazine about her upcoming album “ArtPop,” and her own identity as an artists. Gaga says she doesn’t want to be just one icon in one form of art.
“I thought about Pop Art and how the dominant subject matter was always the celebrity or the pop-culture icon on the canvas, and then I thought to myself, But what I have tried endlessly to become through my work is a celebration of my differences through art, with myself as the canvas, as opposed to me as the subject matter, being put on the canvas. I don’t want to be an icon in just one form. I want to be an icon in many forms. So that’s where it began.”
