Lady Gaga shaves off hair in memory of Annie Lomax, who is the mother of one of her close friends. The singer now sports a shaved triangular patch the nape of her neck, so she is not completely bald.
However, it did land her as the most-recent celebrity to do something outrages with her hair, the others include Kellie Pickler, Lena Dunham, and Miley Cyrus.
Nevertheless, Gaga actually did it for a good cause. She thought it would be an excellent way honor the passing of her close friend’s mother, who passed away on Tuesday, September 11.
“I did it for u Terry. I’m sorry about ure mommy. She has princess die, but were all princess high,” the singer wrote on Twitter. She was writing to photographer Terry Richardson.
In reaction of Gaga’s photo, the fashion photographer posted a picture of his mom on Terry’s Diary with the caption “R.I.P. Annie Lomax, My Mom 1938-2012.”
“She wears wigs anyway so it will always be covered up, lol. It’s meant for her to give something up (at least a part of it) and it’s just an act of compassion, not an act of mental sickness,” stated Michael Giuliano, who is one of her followers on twitter.
