Lady Gaga hits back at critics who call her fat
Lady Gaga has hit back at the critics who have called her fat after she appeared on stage in Amsterdam looking curvier than usual.
The Born This Way singer admits she’s gained 25lbs after breaking her strict diet and indulging in some Italian treats at her dad’s restaurant in New York, but refused to let the negative comments get her down telling radio host Elvis Duran: “I really don't feel bad about it, not even for a second.”
Gaga also confessed how difficult she finds being constantly disciplined with her diet: “It's hard because it's a quite vigorous show, so I tend to bulk up, get muscular, and I really don't like that. So I'm trying to find a new balance.”
Whilst you could be mistaken in thinking the star has buckets of confidence, it hasn’t always been this way as earlier in the year she revealed she suffered from body confidence issues and also had an eating disorder whilst growing up.
In a message of support to girls everywhere she also hit back at the critics who blasted her weight gain tweeting: “To all the girls that think you're ugly because you're not a size 0, you're the beautiful one. It's society who's ugly.”
And never one to forget her fans she added: “And thanks to my fans who love me no matter what, and know the meaning of real beauty & compassion. I really love you.”
Do you think she should have ignored the negative comments, or do you admire her for speaking out against the critics?
