Lady Gaga traded in her meat dress for a cropped wetsuit when she joined some friends this week for a surf lesson.. The chart-topper was photographed hanging ten in the resort city of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
Gaga, real name Stefani Germanotta, managed to maintain her footing despite the fact she’s better known for balancing on platform shoes and stiletto heels.
A Sun newspaper source apparently said: ‘For a relative beginner she took to surfing really well. She started quite slowly learning how to body-board and then she was able to work up to standing – she made excellent progress.
‘She has been very relaxed since she arrived at the resort and is looking to unwind from her punishing timetable on the road.’
Gaga is better known for surfing crowds than waves, but it seems she may have an aptitude for riding surfboards. As well as learning to surf, Gaga unveiled the promo to her new single, You And I, earlier this week – in which she appears dressed as a man and a topless mermaid.
The Bad Romance star will be the opening performer at the MTV awards ceremony, which is due take place at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles on August 28.She is nominated for four VMAs, including Best Female Video and Best Video With a Message for Born This Way, as well as Best Art Direction and Best Choreography for Judas.
Too bad she’s not scheduled for the Teen Choice awards, where winners receive an authentic full size surfboard designed with the graphics of that year’s show.
