Lady Gaga is known for her out-of-this-world make-up and styling, but underneath all the glam, she's au naturel.
In a new pictorial for Harper's Bazaar, the "Born This Way" singer reveals she's never gone under the knife, and says plastic surgery promotes "insecurity."
"How many models and actresses do you see on magazine covers who have brand-new faces and have had plastic surgery, while I myself have never had any plastic surgery?" the pop star asks. "I am an artist, and I have the ability and the free will to choose the way the world will envision me."
Gaga may not feel that she has to change her looks, but she's not immune to other pressures of fame.
During her meteoric rise to the top, Gaga was faced with a tough decision -- to leave her native New York and move to Los Angeles.
"I had all these number-one records, and I had sold all these albums, and it was sort of this turning point: Am I going to try and embrace Hollywood and assimilate to that culture?" Suffice to say, it didn't work out."
"I put my toe in that water ... and had to retract immediately," she says of her decision. "I ran furiously back to New York, to my old apartment, and I hung out with my friends, and I went to the same bars."
