Shrinking violet Lady GaGa has gone topless for a Q photo shoot. The “Poker Face” star did the spread in December just before she was diagnosed with exhaustion, and it seems that the shoot was a bit of an ordeal.

That said, during the emotional interview she did reveal that she is not all crazy glam and loves the more “normal” things in life.

“Well, I believe in certain institutions: cooking, serving dinner, taking care of my family. So I consider myself quite the lady,” said Lady GaGa, before she saw stills from the shoot, lost the plot because she didn’t like the way she looked and left in tears.

However, she has rested up since then and come back with a stirring performance at the Grammys with that other Queen of drama, Elton John.

She must have replenished with some good home cooking!
