Lady Gaga is well-known for her publicity stunts. Her newest haircut is another attention getter. Was it meant that way?
Not according to the lady herself. She claims she did it for a friend. That friend is famous in his own right. It is photographer Terry Richardson, who has photographed Gaga multiple times. He even combined his many photos and published them in a book.
It seems Terry is mourning the death of his mother, Annie Lomax. She was 74 at the time of her death.
The "Born This Way" singer tweeted this message to her friend, "I'm sorry about ure mom." Then she explained the shaved part of the back of her head. "I did it for u Terry."
Perhaps the inverted "V" holds some special meaning between the two friends. However, all that remains a secret for now.
At least Lady Gaga didn't shave off all of her hair. She piled the rest of up in a bun on top of her head. When it's down, it should cover the new buzz cut. That's no doubt a relief to her family and friends.
