Lady Gaga. She rose to fame incredibly fast and she has worn some awful things for attention. Or for the sake of being Lady Gaga. Image is everything? She’s a talented woman and doesn’t need that extra frou, but whatever. What I love about Gaga this week is that she committed the horrible faux pas- in celebworld- of gaining weight! And not even trying to hide it!
And then proclaiming herself happy about it. Her comments to a radio station:
“I’m dieting right now, because I gained, like, 25 pounds. And you know I really don’t feel bad about it, not even for a second.”
“I have to be on such a strict diet constantly. It’s hard because it’s a quite vigorous show, so I tend to bulk up, get muscular, and I really don’t like that. So I’m trying to find a new, improved balance now.”
A lovely departure from this, her earlier tweet (from April) about her own weight struggles:
Which is still refreshing for the honesty. I always knew those celebrity skinnies did not eat. AHA! So now she’s eating, and enjoying, and it’s lovely. Lady Gaga is gorgeous. And she’s proving you can look a lot thinner depending on how you dress (or someone messed with that picture on the left). I vow to keep staying away from leotards, fishnets, and bikinis. You’re welcome.
Also, which one of you told me about Suri’s Burn Book? I have been on that Tumblr for hours. It’s so funny. Maybe not to Suri or her mom, but I think we can all recognize that it’s satire. And hilarious. Check it out:
And now it’s going to be an actual book.
Congratulations to author/Burn-booker Allie Hagan! And why don’t I think of these things?
What do you think of Lady Gaga lately? Do you think they photoshopped one of those pictures to make her look fatter/thinner? Or can clothes make that big of a difference? Have you checked out Suri’s Burn Book? Are you amused, scandalized, or indifferent?
