Gaga’s fourth and final V Magazine cover/spread.
In the final segment of the series, Lady Gaga embodies a character closest to her current state of mind. Having successfully recovered from her hip surgery and subsequent hiatus, she is ready to bring the rest of the world into her ARTPOP consciousness. Marina Abramović tells Lady Gaga not to be afraid to show her humanity to her fans and asks her whether or not she gets a chance to relax. Gaga replies: “Relaxation is so futile. I understand relaxation in only one way. I’m only relaxed when I’m on the stage.”
