Lady Gaga knocks her critics into shape
Lady Gaga has hit back at critics – namely tabloids and gossip sites – who published pictures of her looking fuller-figured onstage (the veracity of which remain uncertain) with the suggestion that she has "piled on the pounds". While admitting she has put on weight, this week the singer took to her blog, Little Monsters, to post pictures of herself wearing a bra and thong, alongside captions that included "This is who I am. And I am proud at any size", and, "Bulimia and anorexia since I was 15".
She then used Twitter to announce the launch of a sub-section of her site called Body Revolution and invited her fans to post photos of themselves which celebrated their "triumph over insecurities". Good on her for standing up to the bullying, which has seen such ugly headlines as "The fat Lady Gaga sings" and "Looking meaty!"
