“I think what has been lovely about my relationship with the public is that they expect something unexpected from me," adds Gaga, who also recently dressed as a man for the MTV Video Music Awards.

Speaking of her body image, Gaga tells Harper's Bazaar, "I’m very free-spirited. Even when I was a kid, I used to run around naked with the babysitter, driving her crazy."

She stays in shape by dancing and says, "I do yoga, I do Bikram and I run, and I eat really healthy. You know, my work sort of feeds me. I keep in shape by working hard."

"I fell off a lot in the beginning," she says, "but one of the surfers said to me, 'Now that you can stand up, just look into the future and enjoy the ride.' I thought that was an interesting metaphor about life."

The magazine hits stands on Sept. 27.
