Lady Gaga has been receiving quite a bit of negative attention for her recent weight gain (she put on 25 pounds), She is now speaking out about her curvier frame. Lady Gaga is using her social media website,LittleMonsters.com, to respond to the negative press — and to reveal her weight and body issues. She posted the pictures to the left with this caption ‘Bulimia and anorexia since I was 15.” She then announced the launch of a new movement, “A Body Revolution 2013,” meant to encourage body acceptance. Gaga wrote;
“My weight/loss/gain since i was child has tormented me. No amount of help has ever healed my pain about it. But YOU have,” she continued. “My boyfriend prefers me curvier, when i eat and am healthy and not so worried about my looks, I’m happy. Happier then I’ve ever been. i am not going to go on a psycho-spree because of scrutiny. This is who I am. And I am proud at any size. And i love you, and want you to be proud in any form you may take as well.”
Wow! Who ever thought that Lady Gaga would become a advocate for body image. She’s encouraging self-acceptance, and her fans have embraced her and shared their own images and stories. I think it’s great that she’s taking a stand. She has the power to make a great impact.
