Lady Gaga's 'ridiculous' pictures

Lady Gaga has revealed she has been caught on camera doing "ridiculous" things in images which have been shot for a new book.

Photographer Terry Richardson is releasing a coffee-table book called Lady Gaga in November featuring over 350 photos of the singer taken over the course of 10 months.

Gaga told MTV news: "Terry was with me for [almost] a whole year, and, gosh, I didn't hold anything back from Terry ... he was with me every minute, every moment," she said. "It's completely unfiltered. He has photographs of me waking up in the morning, brushing my teeth, in the bathroom, in the bathtub, the shower.

She added: "He'd film me like, peeing in a cup and ridiculous things."

The book has already drawn comparisons to Madonna's best-selling coffee-table book Sex, by Steven Meisel.

Gaga continued: "The thing about Terry, if you know anything about his photography, is that nothing is staged. He can get you to do things and he can capture things that no-one can ever capture.

"What I love so much about Terry is that he thinks everything is so beautiful. I'm always, 'Oh Terry, get out of here,' and he's like, 'Oh, it's so beautiful, let me just shoot it.'

"I felt so comfortable with Terry. I love him so much. He's a really close friend, and I feel really honoured that he travelled [with me]."

And the Born This Way singer was pleased that Terry loved her Little Monsters just as much as she does.

She said: "My favourite thing, honestly, is that he loved the fans. He shot the fans the same way he shot me: with no pretence. The music was all of ours."
