Lady Gaga may have received a lot of media attention recently surrounding her love for facial horns and enhanced spiked prosthetics, but in Harper’s Bazaar‘s May issue, the pop songstress says she would never actually go under the knife.
“I have never had plastic surgery, and there are many pop singers who have,” says Gaga. “I think that promoting insecurity in the form of plastic surgery is infinitely more harmful than an artistic expression related to body modification.”
We hear you on that one Gaga, but still, it must be fun to change your face once in a while, right?
“I am an artist, and I have the ability and the free will to choose the way the world will envision me,” she says, adding that those prosthetics are actually her own bones.
So that’s a yes. But though the Lady might strike you as self-assured, with all her number one records and countless magazine covers, she admits to feeling pressured to move to the pop-culture mecca that is 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.”
How, er, refreshing.
