But today, the "Poker Face" singer has everyone talking about what IS on her face.
Steve Bennett of MasterMind Ink in Chicago posted a picture on his Instagram page of himself with a makeup-free Lady Gaga as she proudly displayed her new septum piercing.
"Getting hype with Lady Gaga at my studio in Chicago. (pierced her septum with 16 anatometal seamless)," he wrote alongside the photo.
Gaga has definitely been switching up her look lately as she prepares to release her 'ARTPOP' album, which many think will be a return to her roots as Stefani Germanotta.
The singer has been wearing more subdued makeup (or none at all) and is sporting her natural brown hair instead of her usual platinum blonde. Her clothing also seems to be a bit more casual, but that might be because the most recent photographs of her are more candid and she hasn't made any red carpet appearances in awhile.
Either way, it's definitely a stripped-down version of the theatrical Lady Gaga we're so used to seeing.
What do you think of Gaga's new nose ring?
