Lady Gaga Channels Lady Liberty

Lady Gaga channels Lady Liberty for the "New York Issue" of fashion mag V.

Gaga, who is a native New Yorker, is photographed wearing nothing but a bra, panties and some draped fabrics.

She holds a burning paper torch with designer Marc Jacobs near by.

Explains V editor Stephen Gan of the pic, snapped by photographer Mario Testino: "Just as the Statue of Liberty was France's gift to America, Gaga is, to us, New York's greatest gift to pop culture and fashion...she has become a bonafide genius and we can safely declare her our muse."

What do you think of Gaga's risqué photo spread?
