Gaga embraces being naked

Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga was an extrovert from an early age, which has helped her to be comfortable in the nude as a performer.

The singer often turns heads for her outrageous costumes and earlier this month featured in a video for performance artist Marina Abramović in which she walks around nude.

The star, real name Stefani Germanotta, admits she was never a modest child and her mother often went to great lengths to control her extrovert daughter around company.

“I definitely walked around naked a lot as a kid,” Gaga revealed on Sirius XM’s The Morning Mash Up.

“And my mom used to joke with me because I would always try to freak the babysitter out and… hide behind the couch and rip all my clothes off and run around and singing The Little Mermaid or whatever.”

The Applause singer is now finding great purpose in feeling free to be in the buff.

She’s fascinated by how well she can express a new character by using little more than her nude body.

“And now really what it’s more about is I find it very interesting to be able to transform as much as possible with very little makeup and nude,” Gaga explained.

“So I spend a lot of time in the mirror with these wigs, and the makeup and the outfits, figuring out how I am going to become somebody new.”

The singer is currently preparing for the November 11 release of her forthcoming album, ARTPOP.

It will be her first record to hit shelves since 2011’s Born This Way.

Gaga will take the stage to perform her first single from the album at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards on August 25.
