Lady Gaga's resounding reply; inspiration to fans
Earlier a few days ago, the media had lashed at the weight gain of Lady Gaga. Celebrity news networks fed greedily on the news publicizing that Lady Gaga is not the slim star you knew anymore. Most other celebrities would make a ruckus out of that scene but not Lady Gaga; she was not "born this way". Also, she had not broken down on the news as she recently posted her pictures in underwear plaunting her thin privileges for the world to see and be inspired. Or was that just a smack in the media's face for mocking her weight gain.
For a normal person to gain 25 pounds is no big news but if its a star, especially one like Gaga who is known for her bizarre antics on stage, that is a heavy meat loaf for the media wolves starving to get their chunks. She took it positively, went on diet and posted the pictures. Lady Gaga herself was criticized when she acknowledged the sheer labor involved in starving herself into a piece of conceptual art. “Just killed back-to-back spin classes," Gaga tweeted. “Eating a salad dreaming of a cheeseburger #PopSingersDontEat #IwasBornThisWay."
She called up Z100 D.J. Elvis Duran to say, yeah, she gained 25 pounds, is on a diet now and mentioned she doesn't feel bad about it, after the news of her weight gain became public. She has also revealed that she has been suffering from the psychological disorders of Anemia and Bulimia since her 15th year and then joined the Body Revolution to inspire the fans. She wrote, “But today I join the Body Revolution … To Inspire Bravery … And BREED Some M$therf*cking COMPASSION."
Her Little Monster fans had followed suit, posting pictures of themselves in underwear. One fan wrote, "I’m a recovering anorexic and gaga is helping me to get healthy and love the skin I’m in!" while the others' varied only in the way they were written but essentially had the same meaning.
In response, Gaga praised her fans for being “brave in their vulnerability” and creating “a safe space online for people to be compassionate.”
I, too, commend the Little Monsters' bravery, and humbly advise that when posting photographs of their “size: confident,” yes, but still totally underage bodies on the Internet, they remember to crop out their faces.
