Lady Gaga Nude In V Magazine, Talks New Look And Tumultuous Past (NSFW PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

Lady Gaga has been sporting a new look these days, ditching her shiny costumes and platinum blond wigs for grungy ensembles and her natural brunette locks.

And on the cover of the September issue of V Magazine, Mother Monster proves that she's willing to head back to her roots in order to create a different vibe.

The 27-year-old singer, who just released her new single "Applause," poses nude in the magazine, sporting wet hair, a cropped sequined jacket and jeans on the cover.

"That look was very hard for me because that is how I looked when I was 19 until I was 21 years old … Maybe longer," Gaga tells V, discussing her dark hair and minimal makeup. "I got my hair cut like that when I was 18 and all these really painful things happened during this time."

Gaga admits that she would have never been where she is today without her tumultuous past, which included putting herself in risky situations.

"I have an ability to experience pain for long periods of time -– to endure it, whether it's mental pain or physical pain," she explains. "I think it's because of my discipline as a child. I studied piano and then theater and then dance, so I have this ability to endure long periods of pain. But as a result, when I became an adult at 18, I allowed myself to stay in bad situations because I was able to take the pain."

"Although I was able to withstand a challenge for that period of time in my youth, the results were destructive," she continues. "I was left a shell. Does anyone really know what I went through to get here?"

"Here" is absolute fame. And as her new album "ARTPOP" hits stores in November, Lady Gaga will most likely reach a new level of stardom.
