The Gaga we loved is slowly coming back to us

Lady Gaga looking absolutely beautiful in NYC

Ready to get the weekend underway, a disheveled Lady Gaga was spotted departing her New York City hotel in her usual attention-grabbing manner on Friday (March 2).

Drawing plenty of looks along the way, the "Edge of Glory" singer squeezed past a gathered crowd of fans while clad in an all-black ensemble with an unbuttoned shirt giving full view of her matching black bra.

The outing comes a day after Gaga teamed up with Oprah Winfrey, Deepak Chopra and US Health and Human Services secretary Kathleen Sebelius at Harvard University for the official rollout of the Born This Way Foundation

With part of the Harvard discussion available for viewing below, the 25-year-old's effort has a stated mission to “foster a more accepting society, where differences are embraced and individuality is celebrated.’’
