Lady Gaga is on the May cover of Harper’s Bazaar and she is totally rocking her prosthetics ‘bones’ on her face and arms! But she is little confusing when it comes to her ‘bones’…she says they are her bones notÂ prosthetics, which is misleading because they do look fake at times. I do not think that they been surgicallyÂ implantedÂ so…read Gaga’sÂ comment’sÂ and you decide whats he mean…
“Well, first of all,” she says, “they’re not prosthetics. They’re my bones.”
“They’ve always been inside of me, but I have been waiting for the right time to reveal to the universe who I truly am.”
“They come out when I’m inspired.”
Is she worried that this new look will inspire other people to “grow” similar bones?
“We all have these bones!” she says tersely. “They’re the light from inside of us. Do you mean body modification?”
“No, I’m not concerned about that.”
“I haven’t hurt myself,” she says. Then, with her darkened eyes narrowed, she continues, “I want you to be careful how you view this.”
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.”
“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.”
Gaga also claims that Alexander McQueen is working through her,
“I think he planned the whole thing: Right after he died, I wrote ‘Born This Way.’ I think he’s up in heaven with fashion strings in his hands, marionetting away, planning this whole thing.” Supporting Gaga’s claim was the decision by the label–not Gaga herself–to move up the release date for “Born This Way,” ultimately to the exact day of the one-year anniversary of McQueen’s death. “When I heard that, I knew he planned the whole damn thing. I didn’t even write the fucking song. He did!”
What do you think of Gaga’s horns?
