Lady Gaga continues cryptic posts by sharing nude pics -- but what is she teasing?

Lady Gaga was definitely “Born this Way”!

The 32-year-old singer has never been shy about speaking her mind or showcasing her svelte figure for all the world to see. So it shouldn't come as too much of a surprise to fans that the “Million Reasons” songstress has begun sharing a number of particularly risqué photos showcasing her near-total nakedness on Instagram.

In the images, the blonde bombshell is either putting on or simply posing in sheer stockings. Her many tattoos are on full display in the dark, gritty images. Sure, some of her bits are blurred (or covered by pasties), nevertheless, the images leave very little to the imagination. It’s noteworthy that the shots were taken by Eli Russell Linnetz, a favorite collaborator of Kanye West’s. Gaga has previously shared other images by Linnetz in which she is often warped.

So, what precisely is Gaga promoting? Could these images be for a new, edgy photo spread? Or perhaps she’s planning to return to her more audacious personas of yesteryear following her subdued singer-songwriter phase with 2016’s Joanne.

This Breast Cancer Awareness Month I’ve recorded a version of The Divinyls global hit “I Touch Myself” to remind women to self-check regularly. _ Yes, this put me out of my comfort zone, but I wanted to do it because it’s an issue that affects all women of all colors, all around the world. Early detection is key - it saves so many lives. I just hope this helps to remind women of that. _ The music video is part of the I Touch Myself Project which was created in honor of celebrated diva, Chrissy Amphlett, who passed away from breast cancer, and who gave us her hit song to remind women to put their health first. The project is proudly supported by @BerleiAus for Breast Cancer Network Australia. _ Visit the link in my bio to find out more. #ITouchMyselfProject #BerleiAus #BCNA #DoItForYourself

Today is National Leathercraft Day, National Relaxation Day and National Lemon Merengue Pie Day. It’s also the 9 month anniversary of my hysterectomy. I’ve never celebrated the 9 month anniversary of anything and I realized last night why that number feels so funny- I won’t ever do it the way I planned to. My body is mostly healed and every day I find a new bruise on my heart, but today I offer myself gratitude: from the most pained place, I somehow knew to choose myself. The purest glint of who we are and know we can be is always available to us, calm and true at our center. My friend Paul named my uterus Judy, and when she was being uppity we called her out, hence the tattoo on my ribs, which hurt like fuck even through the pain meds: #RIPJudy. Today I give thanks for Judy, for her graceful exit and for this body, which is stronger than I’ve ever given it credit for. Happy Giving Birth To Myself Day.

It’s out! So thrilled to share my brand new Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur campaign with @peta! I’ve dreamt of shooting this for as long as I can remember. 💘 If you don’t truly know what goes into making fur, please educate yourself. Fur is cruel no matter what. If you wouldn’t skin and wear your own dog, then you shouldn’t wear fur at all because all animals are created equal. Save our animals, save our planet and join me and #Peta in making more conscious choices ❤️🐺🦊🐻❤️

Guess we'll just have to wait and see what the GRAMMY winner has up her sleeve. But one thing is certain: Lady Gaga is an ever-evolving provocateur and performer.

She can next be seen in the upcoming remake of A Star Is Born. In it, she plays Ally, a struggling singer who is considering giving up on her dream when she meets Jackson Maine (Bradley Cooper), a successful musician who guides her career as they find themselves falling in love.

A Star Is Born bursts into theaters on Oct. 5.
