Check out Lady Gaga!
The Pop titan stuns on the double cover of InStyle Magazine, which also dubs as its Beauty Issue.
Posing it for a variety of striking shots (lensed by Nathaniel Goldberg), the feature also sees the singer open up about forthcoming album ‘Chromatica,’ battling back from depression, and her strong desire to start a family.
Pics and quotes below…
On New Album Chromatica:
“I made this music, and then I listened back to all of it, and it told the story of my life like a tapestry. I’m very proud of it because while it’s fun and celebratory, if you listen to those lyrics, you really will know my heart. It’s like the music is giving you permission to go on. Even if you’ve had the worst day ever, it’s OK to dance.”
On Hiding Depression Behind A Facade:
“I think it took me some time to grieve about the things that have happened to me, and I couldn’t be angry with myself for how long it took. I’ve been depressed and been at the grocery store and seen photos of myself and gone, ‘Well, I look like everything is good.’ But I was secretly freaking out, and the world had no idea. Or some people in the world. I hate using that phrase ‘the world.’ It’s so egocentric to assume the whole world thinks about or knows about me. It doesn’t.”
On Her Future Wants:
“Marriage. More music, more movies, more charity with the Born This Way Foundation. I want to do way more philanthropy. I want to help fund more research about fibromyalgia and neuropathic and chronic pain by putting a team of doctors together. I have a lot of dreams and hopes. What I will actually accomplish, I have no idea, but I know that I’ll be doing it with the people I love.”
On Starting A Family:
“Perhaps most important for the woman who calls herself Mother Monster is starting her own brood. “I will say I am very excited to have kids. I look forward to being a mom. Isn’t it incredible what we can do? We can hold a human inside and grow it. Then it comes out, and it’s our job to keep it alive. It’s so funny — everyone works out of my house every day. When they come in, I always say, ‘Welcome to the Womb!'”
