Lady Gaga: Special Effects or Cosmetic Enhancements?
When it comes to rumors about whose looks came with the aid of a scalpel the Lady Gaga plastic surgery rumors are perhaps some of the slipperiest.
The young singer, currently in her 20s, became famous for looks that were compared to Christina Aguilera and her style that’s more than reminiscent of David Bowie.
However, despite her catchy lyrics and outlandish costumes, there is pervading gossip on par with that of Angelina Jolie.
Of course, unlike fellow young stars such as Rose McGowan, Lady Gaga denies that she’s had any procedures done, and that she was “Born This Way.”
Has Lady Gaga Had Cosmetic Surgery – Nose Job, Face Lift?
Born Stefani Germanotta on 28 March 1986, Lady Gaga has repeatedly explained that she is still natural and the way she always has been. Lady Gaga came to public attention in 2008 with her debut album, The Fame. Since then she has had massive international hits with tracks such as Poker Face and Just Dance.
In an outright denial of bad plastic surgery, Lady Gaga has pointed out that a lot of what fans see are prosthetics, wigs, makeup, and even her natural bone structure. No celebrity plastic surgery here, so move along to the next series of questions.
“It’s a performance art-piece,” she was quoted as saying during the interview.
“I have never, ever encouraged my fans or anyone to harm themselves, no do I romanticize masochism. Body modification is part of the over-arching analysis of ‘Born This Way’.”
A touching quote, and one that really brings home how the artist thinks about her art as it might affect her fans. However, it hasn’t quelled all of the speculation fires that are still burning about whether or not Lady Gaga is in fact a plastic surgery celebrity.
In an interview with Derek Blasberg, Lady Gaga explains that she has never gone under the knife.
Lady Gaga – Before and After Pictures?
Whenever people are trying to figure out if a celebrity had plastic surgery gone wrong, they’re going to produce the before and after photos.
To confirm Suzanne Somers plastic surgery speculations for instance, fans will hold up before and after shots that are supposed to show how the basic shape of her changed. It’s a good strategy, and it’s one that works if a procedure was so lacking in subtlety that huge changes occurred.
However this particular plan has a lot of problems when it comes to Lady Gaga. Namely the problem is that she’s, well, Lady Gaga.
Anyone that’s a fan of her work knows that Gaga isn’t just in costume on stage; she’s in costume everywhere. Her outlandish looks are what she’s famous for, and you never see her without makeup, wigs, prosthetics or some other bizarre, appearance shifting getup.
This makes it nearly impossible to get a real bead on whether or not Lady Gaga has had work done, because with all of the makeup skill and artistry that goes into her daily appearance she is constantly shifting.
However, there are still people who claim she’s received lip surgery and a rhinoplasty to lengthen and narrow her nose. Unfortunately both of these effects can be put down to clever makeup and camera angles, leaving Lady Gaga plastic surgery gossip unfulfilled and speculative.
