Lady Gaga recently took off all of your clothes for the latest issue of Candy magazine.
Stripping naked and posing for the camera is apparently the singer’s calling card these days. Not only did she strip down for a promotional video for the release of Artpop, Mother Monster also posed for a series of extremely revealing photos for V magazine.
According to the folks at Hollywood Life, the singer’s latest birthday suit bonanza arrived courtesy of Candy magazine. Since the publication is the first so-called “transversal style magazine,” the singer appears on the cover of the latest issue dressed as a guy.
If the magazine sounds a little familiar to you right now, it’s probably because you vaguely remember Jared Leto and James Franco posing for Candy not too long ago. Lady Gaga is the latest celebrity to play around with gender roles for the publication.
The Huffington Post isn’t the only celebrity to don the cover of Candy magazine this month. Shock rocker Marilyn Manson also posed for the cover of the publication, though his contribution clearly isn’t as eye-catching as the one featuring Lady Gaga.
The “Applause” singer told Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen earlier this year that she doesn’t understand why her penchant for nudity is so shocking to Americans. In her humble opinion, the fact that going full frontal ruffles so many features just shows how painfully conservation folks are in the US.
“I don’t find it particularly shocking in the scope of the artistic world. I understand maybe because I’m a public figure it may be considered [shocking] because it’s nudity. In Europe, nudity is not nearly as conservative as it is in America,” Lady Gaga explained.
She continued, “I’m really proud of myself that I could take my clothes off and take my makeup off and just be there, because since I was 11 years old I didn’t feel like I could. And you have seen me put on lots of wigs and lots of outfits and lots of theater because I was unable to do that.”
Since Lady Gaga’s nude Candy cover features full frontal nudity, it’s probably not too safe to showcase here. However, swing by The Huffington Post if you’re curious to see what all of the fuss is about. Check out Marilyn Manson’s contribution below.
