Raunchy, over the top, revealing and ga-ga-glam….we want this heavyweight photography book to add a little dramarama to our coffee table! THUMP. Just the right enough of scandal to balance out our stack of Martha Stewart mags. (We go both ways.)

Arriving on bookstore shelves today, LADY GAGA X TERRY RICHARDSON is the culmination of a 10-month period in which Mother Monster gave fashion photog Terry Richardson (ironic glasses, handlebar mustache – you know the one) complete access to her everyday life. Nothing was off limits, we’re told. Beginning with Lollapalooza in August 2010 and ending with the Grammy Awards in February 2011, Richardson captures all the intimate, random, behind-the-scenes moments of Gaga’s professional and personal life in over 350 stunning colour and black-and-white photographs. From what we’ve seen so far, it’s all incredibly glamorous (as if we’d expect anything less). 

In the meantime, watch Gaga read the foreward she wrote for the book.
