Lady Gaga has posed for a magazine wearing nothing but a huge grin and with her hands covering her modesty.
In the racy photoshoot for V magazine, the 27-year-old singer is sitting on a stool with her legs apart, with one hand covering her crotch and the other clutching her breasts.
Her huge mane of back-combed blonde hair is also covering her right eye as she grins like a Cheshire cat.
Gaga has since dyed her hair brown, which she revealed in a picture posted on her website in which she is wearing no make-up. She also showed off her new nose piercing, which she had done at a tattoo parlour in Chicago, with a ring through the middle of her nose.
Meanwhile, the singer's former best friend Brendan Jay Sullivan is set to publish a tell-all book, Rivington Was Ours: Lady Gaga, The Lower East Side And The Prime Of Our Lives.
The book - due out on August 27 - tells of his time living with Lady Gaga, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, in an apartment in New York's Lower East Side.
