Lady Gaga spent three days at a retreat in upstate New York learning the Abramovic Method, “a series of exercises designed to heighten participants’ awareness of their physical and mental experience in the present moment.” And what better way to be self-aware than by getting totally nude?
Lady Gaga tried out various poses and outfits — most notably her birthday suit — in a bizarre video she filmed to promote a Kickstarter campaign to help fund the Marina Abramovic Institute.
The “Born This Way” singer took a brief hiatus after undergoing hip surgery, but in true Gaga fashion, the eccentric singer is back doing what she does best — dropping jaws and dropping trou.
The video showed Mama Monster — sometimes in the buff, sometimes not — letting out a few excessively long, guttural notes while bending over in a forest; standing in a lake with two yellow spikes covering her eyes; and — our favorite — cuddling up to a giant crystal while totally naked.
The Kickstarter campaign Gaga was promoting has already raised more than $220,000 from over 1,000 backers — and we’re sure many more of Lady Gaga’s little monsters will contribute once they see her video.
Lady Gaga has long been a fan of performance artist Marina Abramovic, who collaborated with the fame monster on her upcoming album, "ARTPOP."
“I’m obsessed with this woman,” Gaga said of Marina in a 2010 interview. “She is so incredible.”
