Never one to fade into the background, Lady Gaga’s always been a fan of kooky hairdos.
But her latest style has nothing to do with making a fashion statement.
GaGa has shaved the back of her head in tribute to her good friend photographer Terry Richardson’s mum passing away.
The Edge Of Glory star tweeted a picture of her new brown hair pulled up into a high bun, revealing the shaved patch.
She captioned the picture: “I did it for u Terry. I'm sorry about ure mommy. She has princess die, but were all princess high.”
GaGa's comment also made reference to her most recent song, Princess D.I.E, which she wrote in tribute to the late Princess Diana.
GaGa also posted a picture of her hair from the front. She captioned it: “But we still have glamour at the front. ARTPOP."
ARTPOP is the name of her upcoming album.
Terry’s mum Annie
The 26-year-old’s new ‘do comes after photographer to the stars, Terry, informed fans of his mum Annie’s passing on his Tumblr page.
He wrote beneath a picture of his late mum smiling: “R.I.P. Annie Lomax, My Mom 1938-2012.”
As well as the picture of his mum looking happy, Terry also documented his mother’s illness with a number of pictures of her in hospital, on life support.
Terry also posted a picture of him holding Annie’s hand, saying: “The last picture I took of my mom.”
Our thoughts are with Terry at this sad time.
