Lady Gaga stunned in a bare-faced selfie taken in the sunshine. The Oscar-winning singer and songwriter felt “grateful and blessed” after being nominated for nine MTV Video Music Awards for her album Chromatica, her collaboration with Ariana Grande titled “Rain on Me” and other performances. In a powerful message shared with her 42.9 million followers, Gaga let her fans know that they don’t need accolades or awards to celebrate themselves every day.
Standing outside in the sunshine, the rays highlighted the singer’s long, blond hair, which was worn loose and falling over her shoulders. She dazzled in the share, which showed off her stunning facial features and piercing dark eyes. Gaga shielded her bare face from the sun, holding her right hand up against her forehead and showing off a tattoo of a trumpet on the interior of her right bicep, which was designed by legendary singer and sometime Gaga collaborator, Tony Bennett. He drew the instrument before Gaga had it permanently inked on her skin in 2014.
A lovely garden was seen over Gaga’s left shoulder, as well as a manicured lawn and the ocean.
