Lady Gaga will release ‘intimate’ photo book this year

'Lady Gaga', featuring never-seen-before snaps of singer, will be released in November

Lady Gaga will release a photo book featuring new and exclusive “intimate” pictures later this year.

The ‘Judas’ singer will pen the foreword for the new tome, which is called Lady Gaga and will be released on November 22 through Grand Central Books. The publishing company claim that the book will provide “the intimate, random, behind-the-scenes moments” of her life and career, including exclusive photos taken while she was making her latest album ‘Born This Way’.

It will also feature more than 350 pictures from the renowned fashion photographer Terry Richardson. Last September, the star revealed that she wanted to release a book with Richardson, after he joined her for her ‘Monster Ball’ tour when she told Vogue magazine:

He’s on the bus with me. He just follows me everywhere. He’ll photograph me when I’m changing – those quick changes during the show. And sometimes I’ll have to pee during the show, and I’m always screaming, ‘Terry, get out!’

Grand Central BooksJamie Rabb said: “Lady Gaga will be one of the most stunning, provocative and coveted books of the 2011 holiday season.”

Earlier this month, Gaga confessed to having had a cocaine habit in the past when she told US shock jock Howard Stern: “I think that I was lonely and there was something about the drug that made me feel like I had a friend.”
