Lady Gaga’s `trout pout` pic fuels plastic surgery rumours

London: Lady Gaga sports what looks like a trout pout — as she puckered her huge, bee-stung lips for a Twitter photo. The 26-year-old singer posed for her online fans in a Melbourne hotel room, while lying back on a pillow with her eyes shut.

“Night night. Love, Mademoiselle Melbourne,” a leading daily has quoted her as tweeting.

Swollen and uneven, her lips look noticeably larger in the recent shot than it did in past photos. A “trout pout” is often the result when needles are used to inject fillers into the sensitive mouth area.

While never asked about such non-invasive procedures, the singer has certainly denied having plastic surgery. Speaking in April last year, she had poured scorn on stars who flaunted their “brand-new faces” on magazine covers and said that they were “promoting insecurity”.

“I have never had plastic surgery, and there are many pop singers who have,” Gaga said.

“I think that promoting insecurity in the form of plastic surgery is infinitely more harmful than an artistic expression related to body modification,” she said.

However Gaga had admitted recently that it was best to never say never.

“I haven’t had any yet, I was born this way. But maybe after I pop out a few Gaga babies I’ll be not born this way anymore,” she said when asked about cosmetic work in March.
