London: Pop sensation Lady Gaga says she keeps fit with yoga. Gaga, who subjects herself to gruelling dance routines onstage and weird-shaped heels off-duty, works hard on her fitness.
   
"I do yoga, I do Bikram and I run, and I eat really healthy. You know, my work sort of feeds me. I keep in shape by working hard," the 25-year-old singer said.
   
But even when she's not touring, Gaga works for "about 16 to 20 hours a day. And when I'm alone, I write, I imagine, I create things, and I decide how I want to do my future performances. I don't take much time off."
   
The 'Born This Way' hitmaker is famous for her outrageous costumes but Gaga opted to go natural for the cover shoot of the magazine.
   
"Whether I'm wearing lots of makeup or no makeup, I'm always the same person inside," said the singer.
   
Gaga says she opts to dress up as part of her art.
   
"I don't really view it as "natural". I think that artifice is the new reality. It's more about just being honest and sincere to the core of what you do. I think what has been lovely about my relationship with the public is that they expect something unexpected from me," she added.
   
Though the singer puts on a great facade in public, she is happy to go nude as well.
   
"I'm very free-spirited. Even when I was a kid, I used to run around naked with the babysitter, driving her crazy."
