Lady Gaga on Plastic Surgery & 'Assimilating' to Hollywood in 'Harper's Bazaar' (PHOTOS)

Unless you've been living under some kind of rock, you're familiar with who Lady Gaga is and the kind of impact she's had on music in the last couple years.

The Mother Monster covers May's issue of Harper's Bazaar, and talks about just how famous she's become, as well as the pressure to conform to "normal" Hollywood standards, and (despite being only 24) discusses whether or not she'd ever go under the knife.While many choose to get a little nip and tuck to change up their looks to keep up with the youth-obsessed entertainment industry, Gaga proudly states that just isn't her style:

"I have never had plastic surgery, and there are many pop singers who have. I think that promoting insecurity in the form of plastic surgery is infinitely more harmful than an artistic expression related to body modification. I am an artist, and I have the ability and the free will to choose the way the world will envision me."
Gaga also touched on stepping outside her comfort zone when first starting out in the business:
"I had all these number-one records, and I had sold all these albums, and it was sort of this turning point: Am I going to try and embrace Hollywood and assimilate to that culture? I put my toe in that water, and it was a Kegel-exercise vaginal reaction where I clenched and had to retract immediately. I ran furiously back to New York, to my old apartment, and I hung out with my friends, and I went to the same bars.”
That's one way of putting it!

    To Some1: She has her old just looks different when photographed from straight on. If she turns to the side, she has the same old bump she always has.

    No plastic surgery? Um, her nose is much smaller than it used to be. I hate it when starts don't up to their surgeries. I like her old nose, it had character.

    Lady Gaga was so voluptuous in 2008/2009 for a while when she first became famous but has lost so much weight and is so skinny now. Why did she do it? She was perfect before. Please put 10 pounds back on. She looks wasted.

    I hope that Lady Gaga has a cameo in Star Trek 12 as a singer and her character could have dark connections to the Orion Syndicate (the mafia of the Star Trek universe) who should be the villains of the sequel. With her futuristic music and style, she would fit right in. Midway through Star Trek 12, I’d like to see Kirk, Spock and McCoy go undercover to a concert of hers on a distant planet like with Diva Plavalaguna in The Fifth Element (1997). When she sings Bad Romance, Paparazzi, Poker Face or Just Dance, her show could be raided by Syndicate henchmen who have a thunderous phaser fight with Kirk, Spock and McCoy.

    Plastic surgery isn't an option, but photoshop is. Priceless.
