Lady Gaga is daring to bare -- the back of her head, at least.

On her website Tuesday, the pop star, 26, shared a photo of an especially daring new hairdo, after she shaved off most of the hair on the back of her head.

The "Edge of Glory" singer's strange new look, as she wrote, was meant as a tribute to her friend Terry Richardson's late mom, who passed away Tuesday at the age of 74.

"I did it for u Terry," Gaga shared. "I'm sorry about ur mommy."
