Want to look like Lady Gaga?

That's probably not gonna happen, unless you want to wear dresses made of meat, hatch from ornate eggs or start hermaphrodite rumors about yourself.

Just the same, in a new People feature, the superstar opens up about her beauty routines, which are surprisingly normal when you consider the source.

Wait ... you mean Lady Gaga washes her face with Ivory soap and brushes her teeth before bed? You've GOT to be kidding. Where has she been all our lives?!

Lady Gaga Style

This isn't to say Gaga's beauty practices are entirely conventional.

Asked how many nights per week she goes to bed wearing makeup, she replies, “Seven. That is not good for your skin, but I’m blessed with good genes.”

Something that is good for her skin, and everyone's, is the sunblock that she brings everywhere: “I don’t tan my face because it’s bad for wrinkles,” she adds.

Above all, Gaga - whose favorite fragrances growing up were Versace Baby Rose Jeans and Revlon’s Jean Naté - says the best beauty tip is to be yourself.

“Just go with your gut,” she urges. “Whenever you try to be someone else, it’s boring.” So is that why she’s skipping mascara and fake lashes these days?

“I think it’s more modern not to wear [either]. I just wear eyeliner,” the star says, something to which some recent Lady Gaga pictures can certainly attest.

Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" is just too provocative for Malaysians to hear. That's what the government of the Southeast Asian nation decreed this week.

The government there ordered radio stations to play an edited version of the hit song because its lyrics are an affront to Malaysia's conservative values.

Long and Lean Gaga

So what exactly was so offensive?

A refrain proclaiming "No matter gay, straight or bi, lesbian, transgendered life, I'm on the right track, baby I was born this way," makes it pretty clear ...

Little Monsters in Malaysia instead hear a jumble of indecipherable words due to the nation's cultural restrictions on anything promoting an LGBT lifestyle.

"'Born This Way' may be considered as offensive when viewed against Malaysia's social and religious observances," said the country's AMP Radio Network.

"The entire issue of being gay, lesbian or [bisexual] is still considered as a 'taboo' by general Malaysians."

Lady Gaga herself has yet to speak publicly about the "BTW" censorship, but given her recent fallout with Target, we don't expect this news to go over well.

You may not love her music, but you have to respect the lengths to which Lady Gaga will go for her fans. Saturday night, she was the talk of ... Louisville.

After a show at the KFC Yum! Center (yes, that is a real venue), she hit a gay bar called Connections, where a Gaga impersonator show was in progress.

Gaga popped up on stage around 1:15 a.m., right in the middle of her hit song, "Born This Way." She proceeded to join this faux Lady in a duet! Watch:

She'd already performed her smash hit song in concert, but this rendition at the club, where she showed up unannounced, was likely more memorable.

Following the duet with her 6-foot doppelganger, Gaga did a stage dive into the crowd before strutting off stage to the delight of stunned club-goers.

Don't be a drag ... just join a queen on stage. She rules.

Lady Gaga is reaching out to her Little Monsters to help support tsunami victims in Japan. Appropriately, she's doing so with a fashionable twist.

She designed a simple white and red bracelet, with the phrase "We Pray for Japan" in both English and Japanese. All proceeds go to relief efforts.

The singer Tweeted: "I Designed a Japan Prayer Bracelet. Buy It/Donate here and ALL proceeds will go to Tsunami Relief Efforts. Go Monsters!"

She's off the wall with fashion, but on the ball when it comes to charity.

Gaga's bracelet costs a modest $5, but the Mother Monster encouraged her legions of followers - eight million on Twitter alone - to donate more if they can.

Of course, there will be critics claiming "she's only doing it for publicity" another such nonsense. But it's always nice to see celebs using their fame for good.

Follow the jump for a look at the item in question and if you wish to own one and support an important cause, the link above will make it happen ...

You don't mess with Lady Gaga. Especially when it comes to gay issues.

The singer reportedly dissolved a deal with Target over its political donations to MN Forward, a political action group that supported an anti-gay candidate.

When Target didn't cut ties with that organization, Gaga pulled the plug.

Beautiful Gaga

If there's one thing that will set Lady Gaga off ...

Tom Emmer, who campaigned for governor of Minnesota in 2010 (he lost), supported a Christian rock organization that advocated violence against gays and supported a proposed state constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage.

The deal, which included an exclusive expanded edition of her forthcoming album Born This Way, was contingent upon Target supporting LGBT charities.

Sources close to Gaga say she was not thrilled with the deal from the get-go, but had hoped to use her leverage in the agreement to push the company to redeem itself for having supported MN Forward and other anti-gay groups.

The details of the broken deal have not yet been made public, but it looks like it's over and done with. What do you think? Did Gaga make the right call?

Never one to hold back, even when it comes to her own flaws and past, Lady Gaga has offered some insight into what shaped her into the artist she is.

Hinting at past "traumatic events," she spoke with rock journalist Neil Strauss as part of his new book, titled Everyone Loves You When You Are Dead.

Gaga told him something "so terrible that she'd blocked it out," Strauss said, an event "so horrible that she didn't want it in her younger fans' heads."

While Gaga held back uncharacteristically because she felt this "would define her and that's all anyone would ask about," she did offer the following:

"All of the things I went through were on my own quest for an artistic journey to f**k myself up like Warhol and Bowie and Mick, and just go for it."

"All of the trauma I caused to myself, or was caused by people I met being outrageous and irresponsible," the "Born This Way" singer explained.

As for how the drug abuse of her early days still haunts her?

Katy Perry treated a Paris crowd to a rendition of Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" Monday night. An acoustic version, no less. Pretty cool stuff.

Perry paid the Mother Monster the ultimate compliment during her show at Le Zenith concert hall, where she's in town for Fashion Week.

Katy's stripped-down homage was aided by just two acoustic guitars. Fans can only hope Gaga follows suit with a "Firework" cover ...

Maria Aragon, a 10-year-old Lady Gaga fan, won raves, Internet fame and kudos from Gaga herself for her YouTube covers of the pop superstar.

This week, the Little Monster received the present of a lifetime from the Mother Monster - a chance to duet with her on stage, live in Toronto.

It's pretty cool that Gaga made good on this promise and made it happen. Here they are performing a piano duet of her hit, "Born This Way" ...

Last month, Maria Aragon caught Gaga's attention, with the singer promising her she could get up on stage and sing with her in concert.

Actually following through on it will only further her reputation as one of the most beloved, fan-friendly entertainers around. She rules.

Lady Gaga's newest song, "Government Hooker," made an unofficial debut at designer Thierry Mugler's show at Paris fashion week Wednesday.

Also debuting? Gaga on the catwalk!

Gaga walked the runway in high pigtails, Black Swan-inspired make-up and black bangs. She rocked two looks for the show. Here's one of them:

While Gaga didn't sing live, the models walked to a mix of some of her new songs, including the previously unheard "Government Hooker" and "Born This Way."

The show kicked off to "Government Hooker" and, fittingly, when "Born This Way" played, the clothes began to get more wild and the models let loose.

Listen to the singer's latest track and watch the full catwalk performance below:
