Lady Gaga is inspiring little monsters all over the globe to be brave and accept their bodies, regardless of excess weight, scars, and other "imperfections."
Lady Gaga made headlines this week after a recent concert in Amsterdam, where she appeared to have gained weight, with a visibly fuller face and figure.
“I love eating pasta and pizza,” Gaga told radio host Elvin Duran in a recent interview. “I’m a New York Italian girl. That’s why I have been staying out of New York. My father [Joe Germanotta] opened a restaurant. It's so amazing … it’s so freaking delicious, but I’m telling you I gain five pounds every time I go in there. So my dad wants me to eat at the restaurant, and I’m, like, I’ve got to go where I can drink green juice.”
Photos from Lady Gaga’s concert in Amsterdam shocked fans, as Gaga looked a lot heavier than she has at previous performances and public appearances. But the “Born This Way” singer does not seems too unhappy about her increased appetite. “I’m dieting right now, because I gained, like, 25 pounds,” Gaga told Duran.
Now, due to the negative criticism, she has started a "Body Revolution," after admitting she suffered from eating disorders bulimia and anorexia since she was 15-years old. She posted three pictures of herself wearing only a yellow bra and thong, no Photoshop, and no excess weight.

She showed her little monsters that nobody is perfect and that we should all embrace our bodies, because we were born this way.
Hundreds of fans have since posted pictures of themselves on her official website, showing their scars from cutting, their stretch marks, their surgery scars, and their excess weight. One user wrote, “My body revolution: beaten eating disorers, bullies, everything, to be confident and love my body! Thank you for the strength Gaga <3.” Beneath the caption, a girl shows off her body while wearing underwear.
Another young girl writes, “I’ve suffered depression about my weight. Thank you so much Gaga for making me brave & happy about myself. I love you!” above a picture of herself, also in her underwear.
