Now, Lady Gaga has ditched the mike for a book! The Born This Way singer has posted a video where she reads the foreword written by her in the soon-to-be released book, LADY GAGA x TERRY RICHARDSON.
While the book is set to hit the stores on November 22, Gaga, true to her style, has started promoting the book in her own unique way. She has dedicated the book to her 'Little monsters, as she points out, "Naturally".
The video shows the singer clad in a black sequined dress and reclining comfortably on a couch. Reading out aloud from the book, she says, "Hi everyone, its Lady Gaga and I thought to introduce this amazing book that Terry and I did together. I would read an excerpt of what I wrote as the introduction to this book.
Getting in to the storytelling mood, she reads, "Sometimes it seems as though I have waited my entire life to get photographed by Terry Richardson. With Terry, the relationship extends beyond the photos, if you're lucky he will teach you something truly profound about yourself, I have discovered though him that shame is an obsolete notion and apology is an injustice to any performance... To say he is a free spirit is a tremendous understatement, to say that he or I (Terry and I) make people uncomfortable, is spot on."
Gaga's prose is undoubtedly pretentious and since we're used to seeing her prancing around half-naked on stage and she does look a little out of place.
