Mother Monster has added a new look to her exorbitant collection. This one however, has more purpose behind it.
Lady Gaga tweeted a picture of her newly shaved head claiming the neatly trimmed look was for a close friend, Terry Richardson, who had just lost his mother on September 11th.

However, Richardson’s mother isn’t the only one being remembered. At her recent Born This Way Ball concert at the Twickenham Stadium in London, Gaga played her new song titled “Princess Die.”
According to Gaga, the lyrics are directed towards cultural and musical icons that exited this world before their time.
Gaga then confessed to the crowd that as a child, Princess Diana was the most important person in her and her mother’s life.
The slow, melodic song, which Gaga originally debuted back in June in Australia, deals with death and leaving a symbol behind which is clearly shown by the lyrics:
“Leave the coffin open when I go/ Leave my pearls and lipstick on so everybody knows/ Pretty will be the photograph I leave/ Laying down on famous knives so everybody sees.”
Mother Monster’s Twitter after the iconic show in London read, “Twickenham, I’m not even sure what to say. I’ll never forget tonight, London you were the fairest of the ball. Now THAT was f*****g fun.”
