Lady Gaga has bared her breasts in a saucy magazine shoot. The pop singer has stripped off for America's V magazine, and the pictures show her in a glamour-model style pose with her bare chest, smeared with black paint, on full display. In the accompanying interview, Gaga talks about how she wants her new album ARTPOP to cement her place as a serious artist. She says, "I thought about Pop Art and how the dominant subject matter was always the celebrity or the pop-culture icon on the canvas, and then I thought to myself, But what I have tried endlessly to become through my work is a celebration of my differences through art, with myself as the canvas, as opposed to me as the subject matter, being put on the canvas. I don't want to be an icon in just one form. I want to be an icon in many forms. So that's where it began." The Poker Face hitmaker is currently busy promoting her upcoming record and she has taken part in a number of publicity stunts which involve her shedding her clothes. Gaga has been seen parading through a field fully nude in a recently-released video, and she bared almost all by wearing a sheer bodysuit on a recent night out in Los Angeles.
