'Looking artificial can be honest,' says the 'ARTPOP' singer
Lady Gaga has admitted to using facelift tape every day to make herself look younger.
The ‘ARTPOP’ singer told the Daily Mirror that she uses the tape to pull the skin of her cheekbones tighter, and to change the look of her eyes. “When I have my wig cap on and I’m taping my face, it’s a sort of meditation for me,” she said.
She continued: “Every day, it starts the same way. It’s like a mantra. I wash my face, I pin my hair back and put on a wig cap and I ask, ‘How am I going to form my eyes today with this tape? How will I pull back my neck with tape?”’
However, the ‘Poker Face’ performer insists she still has a natural look, despite the daily alterations. “Looking artificial can be honest. Being glamorous can come from a place of authenticity and a place of love,” she said.
Lady Gaga recently added a third date at London’s O2 Arena to her UK and Ireland tour schedule. The first two nights sold out immediately.
