Lady Gaga is getting ready to make her comeback after being out of the spotlight for a while, due to a hip surgery. The singer is set to hit the stage at the upcoming MTV Video Music Awards next month and the one thing on everyone's mind is, what is she going to wear?
From showing up in an egg to wearing a meat dress, Gaga is known for pushing every boundary when it comes to her own fashion sense. But with her new album, it seems Gaga is taking the natural route and getting rid of some of the more gimmicky outfits.
"[I'm not] defined by the same designer or defined by the same haircut or defined by the same icon," Gaga told WWD. "The statement is that I'm not on icon. I'm every icon. I'm an icon that is made out of all the colours on the palette at every time. I have no restrictions."
In new cover art for her upcoming single "Applause," the singer is seen with smudged makeup and dressed in a white coat from Gareth Pugh.
"It's the end of the night after the show," Gaga explained of the picture. "When I look at it I see that there is a longing for the applause. I see that there is a void that is leaking onstage, that the performer is leaking, that the art is sort of becoming something else in front of your eyes. Something more human, something more honest."
Gaga's new album Artpop will be released on August 19. You can catch her during a performance at the MTV VMAs on August 25.
