Considering she wrote a song about it, Lady Gaga takes her hair very seriously. So it was slightly shocking when she tweeted the above photo of her new Lloyd Christmas triangular bowl cut. But the shaved look is actually a tribute: Gaga works frequently with fashion photographer Terry Richardson, and Richardson posted on his site Tuesday (Sep. 11) that his mother had died, so Gaga got the haircut to mourn her death.

Click through to see Gaga’s message to Richardson…and OK fine it’s not all tribute, she also managed to work in a plug of her song “Princess Die.”
