Lady Gaga‘s voice can be heard when she’s performing in a full stadium or a more intimate venue, when she’s talking to one of her fashion BFFs, a room full of tech-heads, or reading from a book of photographs Terry Richardson did in her honor.

Combining the photographically provocative power of Terry Richardson and the inherently explosive aspect of wonder performer Gaga, one is bound to end up with quite a stellar outcome. Lady Gaga X Terry Richardson won’t be released until later this month, but the media hype and anticipation alone, may make it seem like a much longer time.

She and Terry Richardson are planning a book signing at New York City’s New Museum on Bowery on November 22. Perhaps this video of Gaga reading an excerpt from her foreword will quench your thirst for just long enough until the book’s release.
