Lady Gaga just caught over 8 million views overnight for a stunning and natural beauty selfie as she braved a topless – albeit classy – look from her backyard. The “Bad Romance” singer is currently front-page news for radiating her summer glow all over Instagram as she updated for her 48.1 million followers with positivity and, it would seem, nothing up top. On Tuesday, the A Star Is Born actress stripped herself bare as she ditched both the clothing and the warpaint, and fans are stunned.
Scroll for the video. It comes as Gaga celebrates ten years since the release of the LGBTQ-friendly “Born This Way” track. The New York native, showing her natural side, was void of her usual heavy makeup and colorful wigs, posing for a fresh-face boomerang as she stood clasping her chest with one arm and from her sunny backyard.
Showing off natural brown curls, high cheekbones, and a plump pout that doesn’t seem to need her Haus Laboratories cosmetics, Gaga wrote: “May your [heart] shine like the [sun].”
Gaga, who was a million miles from #nomakeup as she was photographed grabbing late-night pizza on the way back to her NYC hotel room just days ago, now sees fans gushing over the post – “Beautiful,” came from the star’s Haus brand, with users also dubbing her a “beautiful queen.”
The video massively contrasted a selfie landing on Gaga’s Instagram just four days earlier – here, the “Rain On Me” hit-maker was all catwing eyeliner, big spider lashes, and wearing heavy foundation. See the contrast below.
Gaga has opened up on how she feels makeup can be empowering. The star, who has proven an open book with her mental health battles, told Allure:
“I put makeup on, and before I know it I feel this superhero within. It gives me those wings to fly,” continuing: “When I became Lady Gaga when I was younger, it was because I discovered makeup. It means so much to me on a deep visceral level — the power of makeup to change how you feel when you’re at your lowest.” More photos below.
Proving that Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner aren’t the only celebrities capable of mass-selling cosmetics, Lady Gaga continues to run her 2019-founded Haus brand, one that’s vegan and cruelty-free – 23-year-old Kylie is, here, behind, having just revamped her Kylie Cosmetics line to be vegan-friendly.
Haus was the first major beauty line to retail exclusively on Amazon, with popular products including its Stupid Love Palette and Head Rush bronzing and highlighter duo. To celebrate “Born This Way” being 10 years old this year, Gaga launched a limited edition Bad Kid Vault box.
