Gaga talks about Terry Richardson BookTuesday, August 09, 2011
Lady Gaga talked about her upcoming book of photos by the controversial photographer Terry Richardson. The book features 350 color and black-and-white photos of the singer taken during the 10 month period in which Richardson followed Gaga and had complete access to her everyday life.
“What I love so much about Terry is that he thinks everything is so beautiful. I’m always, ‘Oh Terry, get out of here,’ and he’s like, ‘Oh, it’s so beautiful, let me just shoot it,’” she said. “I felt so comfortable with Terry. I love him so much. He’s a really close friend, and I feel honored that he traveled with me.”
“My favorite thing, honestly, is that he loved the fans. He shot the fans the same way he shot me: with no pretense. No ‘Well, she’s put out records and they haven’t.’ None of that. The music was all of ours,” she said. “He would come backstage and he would say, ‘Oh my God, the fans!’ And I’d say, ‘I know what you just photographed.’ And he’d say, ‘Baby, wow!’ And then he’d film me, like, peeing in a cup and, like, ridiculous things.”
