As you may already be aware, Lady Gaga and superstar photographer Terry Richardson are releasing a book together on November 22nd, and the Lady Gaga x Terry Richardson photo book foreword reading is a great way for audiences to get a taste of what is in store for them.

Mother Monster herself sits down to read the introduction, which she wrote and dedicated to her Little Monsters, of course, and the results are even more touching, moving, and heartwarming than I ever could have expected.

With excerpts like, "Sometimes it seems as though I've waited my entire life to be photographed by Terry Richardson," and, "He will teach you something truly profound about yourself," Gaga goes on to explain the realness and artistic value behind Terry's photography abilities.
