Much like former pop rival Christina Aguilera, ‘Poker Face’ performer Lady Gaga has been dealt a series of criticisms from media and music fans alike for her recent weight gain.
Indeed, despite continued success on her wildly popular ‘Born This Way Ball’ tour, the ‘ArtPop’ creator has seen a growing number of headlines mentioning her own figure far more than her box office figures.
To combat the slamming headlines, Gaga took to UK’s ‘Stylist’ magazine to share how fan support and the attitude of chart topping diva Adele has helped her deal with the criticisms. Read her interesting comments below:
“Adele is bigger than me, how come nobody says anything about it? She’s so wonderful and I think her confidence is something I have to match,” the 26-year-old performer told the UK’s Stylist. “She has set the bar very high for a lot of women.
“I need to be a confident woman and just say politically active things when I can that are helpful to young people,” she added.
“I was acutely aware of some photos on the Internet – my mom called me and was like, ‘Did you gain weight?’ – everybody was telling me about it, and I didn’t really care.”
“But when I heard it was on the news, where they talk about wars, the economy crashing and the election – I just thought, ‘This is f***ing ridiculous,’” she said. “I mean, what kind of example is that to a young girl sitting at home?”
“I thought, well I don’t really care if they think I’m fat, because, quite honestly, I did gain about 30 pounds. “
