Lady Gaga was Born This Way, or something.
Looking fresh-faced and entirely free of makeup, frills or good angles, the singer shared a surprising, makeup-free selfie on her website this week.
Take a look:
"ARTPOP as they pry the single from my bleeding fingers," she wrote. "It's a scary thing to revisit the things underneath, the pain in your past, but all I found was raw passion."
"I thought I was destroyed inside. I'm just ready to fight. start the music."
Well, there you go.
Whatever the motivation for sharing the photo, it's a revealing look at Lady Gaga, who tends to cover up with elaborate stage makeup and costumes.
The 27-year-old star, who shows off a pale pout and eyebrows that contrast starkly with unkempt raven hair, has posted sans makeup in the past.
In fact, we've seen the uninhibited Lady Gaga with no makeup on Twitter and even on the cover of Harper's Bazaar. But this photo is just so ... raw.
It's not the only way she's "exposed" herself lately, either.
Monday, a photo of Lady Gaga nude in V Magazine hit the web, as she gears up for the first single off of her upcoming album ARTPOP on August 19.
So glad to have the rumored hermaphrodite back. Just kidding. About the hermaphrodite part. We are so grateful she's healthy and back on our radar.
What do you think of her no-makeup selfie?
