Known for her outlandish costumes, catchy tunes, and petite frame Lady Gaga has attracted a lot of attention lately for another reason entirely. The singer has created quite a stir because of a recent weight gain that she recently revealed was about 25 pounds. There have also been rumors that her record label is pressuring her to lose the weight immediately.
But in complete Gaga fashion, the “Born This Way” singer is not afraid to say how she feels about the weight gain and send a message to girls about why they are beautiful no matter what size.
ABC News reports about Lady Gaga’s response to the buzz about her weight gain and this last weekend’s public spotting of the artist wearing an enormous cartoon-like dress that completely dwarfed her body making it impossible to tell what size she really is. Knowing Lady Gaga, this costume was probably in direct response to the scrutiny she has received over her weight.
In the same weekend, Lady Gaga took to her Twitter posting a photo of the famous-for-her-curves Marilyn Monroe with the caption, “And thanks to my fans who love me no matter what, and know the meaning of real beauty & compassion. I really love you.” She also posted this to her social networking site, LittleMonsters.com “To all the girls that think you’re ugly because you’re not a size 0, you’re the beautiful one. It’s society that’s ugly.”
What do you think about Lady Gaga’s response to the media attention she has received since gaining weight?
Do you think her record label has the right to pressure her to lose weight?
Why do people think it ok for them to comment on how another looks, lives her life, or decide her views are all wrong. If Lady Gaga is comfortable with herself, it really shouldn't be any concern of others. In the 60's, I use to love to wear pink and orange....I was called weird. Judging by today's fashions, I was just way ahead of my time. Let the girl be who she wants to be. Women who come to mind, that were NOT a size 2....Liz Taylor, Marilyn Monroe
I have been in the 21 to 23 Bmi range all my 60 yrs. except a two year illness. Sometimes weight is the result of illness but most of the time weight is a choice. If your doctor, the only one that should judge, feels you are in a good weight range, that is all the matters. I think it is great Lady Gaga is saying you don't have the right to judge. I started taking my kids for walks to explore when they were toddlers, by the time they were school age the loved being outside. They got angry when the street lights went on because that ment it was time to go home. Less time inside means less time snacking infront of the tv.
This is a great message to send to little girls. You don't have to be stick then to be pretty.
She is sending out a great message to all women. Women do not have to be a size 0 to be beautiful. Her records company should not very pressuring her if I was her I would drop them
It's about time this society can stand up for what and who they want to be everyone doesn't have to look anorexic or strung out on drugs......Between kids being bullied for how they look and what they wear it's getting a little out of hand.....if a record label wants to drop someone for gaining weight then find a new record label....This world needs a huge wake up call it's becoming very very sad!!!!!
The fact that Lady GaGa is comfortable in her own skin and sends a positive aspect to girls/women that no matter what your size you are beautiful is great. The media obsession with anorexic and heroin chic models/actresses is unhealthy and gives all females a negative self image and does not reinforce a positive assessment of how we should look at ourselves. Why is it a "fat" man can be sexy ie: Elvis in later years but a "fat" woman needs to lose weight,is unsexy etc...So many double standards as to weight. Not everyone's body is designed to be a lollipop stick. Dolly Parton looked much healthier and sexier when she had her curves to her body shape now. She has turned into one of the lollipop kids (big head-stick body)!
