On the eve of her 26th birthday, Lady Gaga has posted a very cute photo of herself with no makeup on Twitter. The singer was born THIS way ... or something.
Of all people to see with no makeup, Gaga - a young woman famously known for her wildly outlandish outfits, elaborate hairstyles and creative makeup - stands out.
Half the time she's got a lobster or slab of raw beef on her head, for that matter. Casual opportunities like this - one of our new favorite Lady Gaga photos - are rare:
She's on a self-imposed media blackout, but that doesn't mean she's not in touch with fans. Monday, Gaga tweeted the au naturale self-portrait via Blackberry.
In the pic, Gaga's hair is in a casual ponytail with a flower pinned behind her ear, and her body clothed in a loose tank top. She looks quite ... approachable.
The Lady has always bolstered her already considerable talent with the sense of unity she projects to her fans. A superstar who's like all of us, so to speak.
Pictures such as this and random tweets about watching Monday's episode of "Drag Race" certainly make her seem like a normal, down-to-earth gal.
