Makeup-free Lady Gaga on Harper's coverDon’t be alarmed, Little Monsters. The 25-year-old assures us that even when her skin is wiped clean, she’s still crazy as a bat.“Whether I’m wearing lots of makeup or no makeup, I’m always the same person inside,” the much-lauded multi-Grammy winner tells the mag. “I think what’s been lovely about my relationship with the public is that they expect something unexpected from me…I’m very free-spirited. Even when I was a kid, I used to run around naked with the babysitter, driving her crazy.
Gaga also spoke to the mag about her fitness regime and it sounds like Mother Monster is a bit of a workout fiend.
“I do yoga, I do Bikram and I run, and I eat really healthy. You know, my work sort of feeds me. I keep in shape by working hard.”
These days, Gaga’s taken up an unlikely means of staying in shape: Surfing. The outre pop songstress rode her first wave during a two-day vacation to Mexico in August: “I fell off a lot in the beginning, but one of the surfers said to me, ‘Now that you can stand up, just look into the future and enjoy the ride.’ I thought that was an interesting metaphor about life.”
