Lady Gaga's photo book is coming out Tuesday of next week and the book, Lady Gaga X Terry Richardson, features pictures that were taken by famed photographer Terry Richardson during a 10 month period in which Richardson had complete access to her life.  The book arrives in stores on Tuesday and you can get it autographed by the Mother Monster herself if you've pre-ordered it and will be in New York on Tuesday!  But something tells me a lot of us here in East Texas haven't pre-ordered it so we'll be buying it locally!

Catch Lady Gaga reading a portion of the introduction of the book after the jump.

For this book, Terry Richardson had complete access to Gaga's life.  He was able to view and capture her at her most personal and private moments.  Gaga describes the experience of being photographed by him by saying,

"There is no moment too strange, no angle unflattering...and never a time that I feel embarrassed or unsafe.  Awakened into me is a perverse liberation, inspiring me to feel that it is o.k. to view yourself as 'hyper human.'  This is how Terry views me.  I am so real, he says, that I am unreal."

There's more Gaga on the way too!  Next week you'll be able to purchase the DVD of her HBO concert special Lady Gaga Presents The Monster Ball Tour at Madison Square Garden then she'll be releasing a new album soon called Born This Way: The Remix.
