Gaga gets a fro!
She's experimented with virtually every hairstyle under the sun to go with her eccentric outfits. And now Lady Gaga has switched up her look once again to ditch her sleek blonde hair for a huge Afro, as she covers the September issue of prestigious magazine Vogue. The singer took to her Twitter page to give fans a sneak peek of the cover, shot by Mert & Marcus, which shows her stunning hourglass figure in all its glory.
Gaga is seen showcasing her feminine shape in a gorgeous purple fishtail strapless gown by Marc Jacobs as she poses on the front of the fashion bible. Along with her massive blonde Afro, Gaga also sports purple eyeshadow to complement the colour of the bright gown. Gaga's cover shoot — the second for the singer — was to mark a special anniversary issue of Vogue, celebrating '120 years of style'.
Sharing the cover, as well as an interior shot showing her naked apart from a huge pink hat, Gaga tweeted: “I’m so excited to post the SEPT ISSUE OF VOGUE in 30 min! Photographed by MERT & MARCUS.”
And in the accompanying article, Gaga admitted that while she is one of the most recognisable singers in the world, she still likes having anonymous moments wherever possible.
Revealing that she still likes to 'feel a little irresponsible and act like I'm nineteen', Gaga said she likes to sneak into bars and dance topless, or have sex on the beach.

He's still got it!
He may have entered his fifties now but that's not having an effect on movie hardman Jean-Claude Van Damme. The action man, 51, went out of his way recently to show that he's still got it as he flaunted his six-pack and showed off his moves in front of waiting photographers. He was at a photocall for The Expendables 2 in Madrid, Spain, along with his castmates Jason Statham and Dolph Lundgren.
And ensuring he wasn't overshadowed, he made quite the impact as he fooled around to please onlookers. Van Damme first of all lifted up his shirt to reveal his honed stomach as he flexed his arm muscles while grinning at the cameras. The Timecop star was obviously in a cheeky and jovial mood as he also highkicked the air several times for maximum impact. Wearing spectacles he punched the air and merrily hugged Statham, who seemed happy and relaxed at the screening at the city's Ritz Hotel. He wore a grey suit jacket with jeans and shoes, while he put sunglasses on his face to ensure he looked as cool as could be.
Swedish star Dolph also looked dapper at the event in a full suit, shirt and tie.
He giggled and adjusted his jacket as Jean-Claude joked about his height in comparison to the other two hefty men.
Missing from the promotional trail was actor Sylvester Stallone, who is currently continuing to mourn the death of his 36-year-old son Sage, who passed away last month.

Liu plays a female Watson
The controversial choice to cast Watson as a female sidekick cast horror on Sherlock Holmes fans. Yet Lucy Liu appeared to be putting her individual stamp on the character as she shot scenes alongside Jonny Lee Miller for season one of Elementary — due to be broadcast in September.
The Charlie's Angel actress was seen holding an umbrella on location in Brooklyn, New York, as she looked keen to tap into her Kill Bill action skills while darting out of a car.
Apart from changing Watson's gender, it it unknown how the latest adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's detective series will be executed.
Previously, the BBC beat CBS to it with their version of Sherlock starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman.
Meanwhile, Hollywood also created their own silver screen blockbuster, with Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law as the two leading protagonists. Speaking during a press conference at the San Diego Comic-Con event last month, the 43-year-old actress praised the show for “thinking outside the box”. Liu said: “You have to be a pioneer, and being a pioneer means doing things that are different and outside of the box.”
