Ryan Seacrest got the ARTPOP treatment.
Lady Gaga stopped by to talk to the morning radio show host today to dish the deets on her latest single "Applause," and during her visit, the duo decided to have a little makeover.
Mother Monster, who arrived wearing the theatrical makeup fans first witnessed on the cover art for the track, attempted to give Seacrest the same look.
Although Ryan seemed to get the facial expression down, he admitted that he couldn't pull it off quite like Gaga.
"One of us was born this way, one of us needed to be touched up," Seacrest wrote with the photo.
Despite Gaga's makeup-heavy look lately, the singer has actually toned down her normally over-the-top look as part of her latest evolution in beauty and fashion, which was evident in her nude cover shoot for V Magazine.
"There's a sense of stripping bare and then putting things back on. That's the process she's going through," photographer Van Lamsweerde—who shot the September issue images—explains to WWD. "For her it's a part of that not hiding behind wigs and glasses and all kinds of stuff."
Gaga released the anticipated single "Applause" today, a week earlier than schedule, due to Internet leaks.
"Due to hackers an abundance of low/high quality leaks…we issue this pop music emergency…monsters spread the word," she added via Twitter.
"Applause" is featured on Lady Gaga's forthcoming third studio album ARTPOP, hitting stores Nov. 11.
