Okay, let's be honest here. The last time you tried to get a great picture of yourself that wasn't a selfie, it took you 415 tries, had to be taken between 11:48 a.m and 11:49 a.m. to take advantage of the best natural lighting, and required a friend standing by to make sure you had only the approved number of chins and no nostril-hairs on display. People who have never modeled imagine that it's easy to just stand there and look gorgeous––but there are countless tricks to doing it successfully. Getting a camera to capture what the eye sees and the artists envision is nearly a Mission: Impossible scenario unless you've had years of training. Even the professionals take loads of frames to get one perfect shot.
And then there's Lady Gaga.
She just unintentionally proved to the world that she may be the single most talented woman on Earth. It's not because of her stellar pipes, killer dance moves, or ability to body-slam the world's eardrums with hit after hit. It's all about striking that pose. After a red carpet interview, she leaned in to give farewell kisses, then she leaned back, glanced over her shoulder and hit a perfect pose, undoubtedly smoldering some poor unsuspecting photographer with her expression. And she did all of this in one fluid movement with not a hint of an awkward need for adjustment. She looked like a Gaga-bot returning to its pre-programmed, and fabulous, neutral position.
Twitter is typically impressed with anything Lady Gaga does, but this one is seriously the most strangely beautiful, kind of alien, and Gaga-esque thing ever.

@fkajack Such a smooth transition too— Rikki Ann (@Rikki Ann)1537999196.0
Apparently, Gaga does this sort of effortlessly awesome thing all the time. One commenter brought up the way she folds a shirt. Now we know what you're thinking: "It's folding a shirt, how could that possibly be something people would be stunned by?" We had the same thought. It's not exactly a magic trick, but somehow Lady Gaga managed to make it into a moment of strange performance art.

Are these videos in reverse? Is Gaga an alien? Perhaps some immortal being trying to figure out how to move in the jerking and un-elegant way we mere mortals do? We have no idea, but we love it — whatever it is.
