Miley Cyrus recently chopped off a good chunk of her hair and showed the new ‘do on Twitter. Lady Gaga is the latest celebrity to use the microblogging site to debut a new look. While Cyrus’ makeover was for the sake of fashion and/or self-discovery, Gaga’s intention is a show of support for her good friend, Terry Richardson. The “Bad Romance” singer shaved half her head in honor of the photographer’s mom who passed this week.

“did it for u Terry. I’m sorry about ure mommy. She has princess die, but were all princess high.” – Lady Gaga via Twitter

The 26-year-old frequently collaborated with Richardson on several projects including a picture book. Recently, Terry accompanied Gaga during her tour in Finland. I posted a few candid pics he took of her during some downtime at the hotel. Richardson announced his mom’s passing via his Tumbler page, “R.I.P. Annie Lomax, My Mom 1938-2012.” Check out Gaga’s new hairdo below.

As you can see, the Fame Monster kept the length in the front the same, and limited the shaving to the back of her head. After posting a picture of the back, she shared the front view and said, “But we still have glamour in the front. ARTPOP.
