Lady Gaga has been chosen to grace Variety magazine’s latest cover, where the singer balances delicately on a high stool.

The shoot took place at Gaga’s Malibu house before she had to evacuate due to the ongoing California wildfires. In the photo, she dons a taupe men’s collared shirt, which Bradley Cooper’s character ‘Jackson Maine’ gifted to her in the film A Star Is Born.

In her interview with Variety, Gaga reveals that she had kept souvenirs from the movie—including her songbook, a bottle of Mr. Bubble, as well as a shirt worn by ‘Jackson’, which she hopes to share with her children in future.

The monochromatic shoot, captured by photographer Art Streiber, sees Gaga delivering some dynamic poses and making impressive shapes with her body, where one involves the singer balancing precariously on a stool.

The image has awakened comparisons to Ariana Grande’s seemingly impossible stool pose for her album My Everything. The absurdity of Grande’s body position had left Twitter users baffled as to how the singer managed it without any Photoshop. It eventually morphed into a comical challenge where internet users attempted to recreate the pose.

Take a look at the similarities between Gaga and Grande’s shoot below.

Lady Gaga opens up about how she's still processing the success of her first movie: “This has been a very transformative time for me. As an artist, there’s always a feeling of ‘Am I good enough? Am I making something honest? Am I making something true?’ There is a sort of stagnant sadness in me, wondering if I'm enough." Link in bio for full interview. (📷: @aspictures)
