Lady Gaga's 3 Steps To A Comeback: Nudity, A New Look And Some Online Mystery

Terry Richardson shoots Lady Gaga for Terry's Diary

Lady Gaga is in the midst of staging her big comeback, but how will the eternal radical break the mould for 2013? After all, those egg costumes and spiky face appendages were dated even before the Gaga copycats  put their shoulder-pads on for the last time.

The Big G has now recovered from a hip operation and is back in her mega-platforms, but even that major experience was harnessed for its potential. Ever the postitive thinker, Stefani turned a bad thing into a good, most significantly with an ultra luxurious wheelchair and popular off-the-cuff photo ops. No one could ever accuse the award winning singer-songwriter of resting on her laurels, but there are a few subtle ways that the Gagaloo is slowly but surely bringing her comeback around. We're not takling about an bells and whistles promo tour, or daily radio interviews and endless red carpet appearances, but the following three things....

Inez and Vinoodh's Instagram preview

1. Do a shocking naked shoot

A spread for V Magazine (literally?) shot by Inez and Vinoodh will soon be released. Via the magazine’s website you can also swot up on the Warholian-experience that will be Gaga’s second ARTPOP project – apparently she will host a rave and you’ll be able pre order the single. Oh and by the way, that won’t actually be available until November 11! Talk about anticipation.

A screenshot from Lady G's leaked video - what is she licking?

The photography duo first revealed a sneak peek of Lady Gaga butt naked with nothing more to cover her modesty than her hands and a wild mane of strawberry blonde hair. They are also responsible for a short ARTPOP preview video featuring a very natural make-under of the star.

2. Change your style and get Terry Richardson to capture it first

In addition to the peroxide crop complete with shaved undercut, Lady Gaga has tried alternative ‘dos: a sharp blonde bob and straight auburn locks. In addition, her wardrobe has been toned down with a significantly more minimal aesthetic. And there’s been rumours of a nose job.

3. Mysteriously shut down your Twitter account

She also deleted her tweets backdated to February – the time of her hip operation. With the message: "This interface has been shutdown temporarily. Please check back for updates." Fans will be suitably intrigued to take note and continue to check back for updates…
