The Most Honest Beauty Quotes From Lady Gaga 2011-04-13 12:34:56

From Plastic Surgery to Soap, Lady Gaga's Most Revealing Beauty Quotes

Lady Gaga is inspiring in part because she's so open. It's hard to believe that a woman walking around in 14-inch hoof shoes and three wigs is still a big fan of Ivory soap and sunblock. When it comes to her face, body, and plastic surgery, Gaga's totally up-front and surprisingly normal. See what Gaga really thinks when you keep reading.

On the difference between plastic surgery and body modification like her tattoos and prosthetic "horns": "I have never had plastic surgery, and there are many pop singers who have," Gaga told Harper's Bazaar. "I think that promoting insecurity in the form of plastic surgery is infinitely more harmful than an artistic expression related to body modification."

On her resemblance to fashion icon Isabella Blow: "When I first started doing photo shoots, people would say, 'My God, you look so much like Isabella Blow, it scares me,'" Gaga revealed to Vogue. "And McQueen used to say, 'Oh, my God, your boobs!' He actually grabbed both of them and said, 'Even your boobs are like hers!'"


On making the cover of Vogue: "As funny as it is that I am on the cover of Vogue—and no one is laughing harder than I am—I was the girl in school who was most likely to walk down the hallway and get called a slut, or a b*tch, or ugly, or big nose, or nerd, or dyke."

On maintaining her self-esteem: "Try to think compassionate thoughts about yourself for five minutes," Gaga recommended to People StyleWatch. "I don't always do it, but I try to, and I encourage everyone reading this to try. There's a lot of criticism and scrutiny in anyone's business, so just spend five minutes thinking nice thoughts about yourself."

On her actual beauty essentials: "Sunblock! I don't like to tan my face because it's bad for wrinkles," she told People StyleWatch. She's also got a surprising facial cleanser preference. "Ivory soap to wash your face. Really simple."

On what she really wants after a day in her high heels: "A foot massage," she told People StyleWatch. "Just my feet."

Look at her nose, its huge. She didn't get a nose job. The horns are knockoffs from McQueen's last collection before he passed. Her style is just a collection of other designer's hard work, especially those from Japan she claims as her own.

FYI, that picture of her "pre nose job" is fake - he nose NEVER looked like that, check her high school yearbook picture where she was teen and awkward. I don't think she's had a nose job.

I really like Lady Gaga. I wouldn't say she is a "role model" for my daughter, but she is a performer, not a mom. My daughter likes to look at pictures of her because her style is so unusual. It's my job not to let her watch the videos, because I don't think they are appropriate, but I let Bella look at her pictures as someone who isn't "conventionally pretty." She has her own look, which I think is amazing.

Normal...? She also claimed that those prosthetics were part of her body, and that they 'came out when she was inspired." later in the interview, she claims McQueen wrote "Born This Way" from the grave, and 'planned the whole thing'... As much as I enjoy her, this seems a little... far fetched, and slightly bizarre.

YEAH RIGHT she's never had any plastic surgery. With the internet, why deny it?
