She is well-known for her crazy and outlandish styles, but this time around, Lady Gaga is going for a much more toned down (and make-up free) look on the cover of the October 2011 issue of Harper’s Bazaar Magazine.

“Whether I’m wearing lots of makeup or no makeup, I’m always the same person inside,” said the singer, adding that she likes to wear her birthday suit more than she likes wearing crazy costumes.

“I’m very free-spirited,” she says. “Even when I was a kid, I used to run around naked with the babysitter, driving her crazy.”
