Lady Gaga to release photograph book

2011-07-29 09:46
 
Los Angeles - Lady Gaga is to be the focus of a new "intimate" pictorial book.

Described as a "visual dialogue" between the pop star and acclaimed photographer Terry Richardson - who has taken over 100 000 pictures of the Poker Face hitmaker - Lady Gaga will be released on November 22 and features an introduction written by the eccentric singer herself.

Announcing the book, Grand Central Publishing said: "The book will showcase over 350 colour and black and white photographs taken during the 10 month period in which Richardson followed Lady Gaga and had complete access to her everyday life, with nothing being off limits.

"Beginning with Lollapalooza in August 2010 to the February 2011 Grammy Awards which had 26.66 million viewers, (the highest viewership in over a decade) to the final shows of her Monster Ball tour which averaged an attendance of 90 000 people each day, Richardson brilliantly captures the intimate, random, behind-the-scenes moments of Lady Gaga in both her professional and personal life."

'Amy gave me hope'

Meanwhile, Gaga has spoken of how an intimate moment watching her grandmother as her grandfather lay dying inspired her hit Edge of Glory.

She said: "I remember feeling so sad, but they both sort of acknowledged that they won at life because they won at love with each other."

After her grandfather died, Gaga joined her father in drinking shots of tequila and began to write the song.

She recalled in an interview with KIIS-FM DJ Jojo: "For some reason I was able to express what my father was not about to express (...) what was so hard, was for my dad to watch my grandpa be on the edge to watch him cross over, but not be there yet."

The singer also spoke of how much she loved Amy Winehouse, who died suddenly on Saturday aged 27.

She said: "I didn't know Amy Winehouse, but I just loved her so much.

"I was such a huge fan, and I was a go-go dancer in New York when she was really big. So Amy gave me hope."
