She is said to have shed 30lbs since her hip surgery earlier this year.
But it appears that that number may be more as Lady Gaga is a shadow of her former self in a new image featured in her upcoming risque shoot for V magazine.
With her ribcage, back and hip bones protruding, the singer reveals an alarmingly skinny frame in two other topless shots.
Gaga also goes completely nude, merely covered in cling wrap
Merely wearing a pair of black briefs, Gaga bends over only to accentuate her tiny torso.
In the shocking shots, she also experiments with yet another hairstyle, this time a blonde short crop.
With no clothes to model in the pictures, the focus is not only on the Born This Way star's physique, but also her heavily made-up appearance.
Meanwhile, an alternative cover for the magazine has also been released.

On it, Gaga's chest is merely concealed by a purple perspex jacket.
The pop star also exposes herself in several other snaps for her daring September shoot.
Ahead of the November release of her new album ARTPOP, the Pokerface singer stripped down for the array of images, taken by photographers Inez van Lambsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin.
In another shot, Gaga is seen with black muck on her face and her bust.

The magazine features Gaga on four different covers, with each look custom-designed by world-renowned design houses, Balenciaga, Armani, Saint Laurent and Versace.
The first image of a butt-naked Gaga was uploaded to Instagram last month by Inez and Vinoodh.
In it the singer is sat on a chair with her legs spread apart and her modesty protected by a strategically place hand and arm across her chest.
