New look is a tribute to the mother of photographer Terry Richardson
Lady Gaga decided to shave the back of the head in tribute to photographer Terry Richardson and posted a picture on his social networking Little Monsters.
Along with the photo, the star of 26 years wrote: "I did it for you, Terry. Sorry for your mother."
Richardson, who worked with Gaga on a book of photographs taken behind the scenes of the Monster Ball tour, revealed the death of his mother through his page on Tumblr: "Rest in peace, Annie Lomax, my mother, 1938-2012."
On Twitter, the singer revealed to fans that had not shaved the entire head, revealing: "In front we still have glamour".
