Lady Gaga: Yoga for Body Confidence & Surfing as Metaphor for Life
Lady Gaga attributes her body confidence to yoga and dancing, and uses surfing as a metaphor for life in the recent issue of Harper's Bazaar. Gaga appears au naturale (sans makeup) on the cover, which we rarely see.
Gaga on being free-spirited:
"I'm very free-spirited. Even when I was a kid, I used to run around naked with the babysitter, driving her crazy."
She attributes her body confidence to yoga:
"I do yoga, I do Bikram and I run, and I eat really healthy. You know, my work sort of feeds me. I keep in shape by working hard."
Gaga has also taken up surfing:
"I fell off a lot in the beginning... but one of the surfers said to me, 'Now that you can stand up, just look into the future and enjoy the ride.' I thought that was an interesting metaphor about life."
