The 25-year-old pop star talks plastic surgery in a candid interview with Derek Blasberg where she opens up about her pint-sized body and having the freedom to decide how the world sees her.
Rocking a pink cotton candy wig, smoky eye makeup, pink berry lips, gray stiletto nails and sharp facial "bones" on the magazine's cover, Gaga also reveals that her sculpted cheekbone structure is an ever-present reflection of inspiration.
"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."
"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,'" Gaga adds.
