Photographer Wolfgang Tillmans shot Lady Gaga for i-D magazine’s latest issue, and she looks positively normal. Obviously, she’s wearing those heel-less platforms and her hair is in a grandmotherly gray bouffant, but other than that, these images could be culled from a slightly outré Urban Outfitters catalogue. She looks like your regular goth-tinged hipster with a trust fund to spend at Oak. Do you think this means Lady Gaga is getting tired of all the crap she has to put on every day?
It must be exhausting. “First I put on my ripped fishnets, then my asymmetrical leather leotard, then those things that make my cheekbones look like alien cheekbones, then I’m in hair and makeup for four hours while they make me unrecognizable as an actual human, and oh, then I throw on my Alexander McQueen lobster claw shoes and I’m out the door.” If I were Lady Gaga I would be so over it.
