Lady Gaga has shaved part of her head in tribute to friend Terry Richardson’s late mother. Richardson announced that his mother, Annie Lomax, passed away Tuesday. Lady Gaga showed support with a new hairstyle resembling Richardson’s hairline and an endearing tweet.
“I did it for u Terry. I’m sorry about ure mommy. She has princess die, but were all princess high,” Lady Gaga’s tweet reads.
The singer and photographer cultivated a close friendship after the famous Richardson spent almost a year photographing the pop star. The photographer captured Lady Gaga backstage and in her everyday life. The photos were published in 2011 in a book titled “Lady Gaga X Terry Richardson.”
In the days leading up to his mother’s death, Richardson shared a series of photographs of Lomax on Tumblr. In a post on his blog, he wrote, “R.I.P. Annie Lomas, My Mom 1938-2012. I Love You Mom, Get Some Rest And Feel Better.”
Lady Gaga also shared a photo of the front of her hair, which remains intact, saying, “But we still have glamour in the front. ARTPOP.”
A little bit odd, the gesture is in proper fashion for the quirky Lady Gaga.
