Throughout the years in Hollywood, we have seen many different stars battle weight issues, whether it be about being too skinny or too fat.
While some go to drastic measures to change their image, Lady Gaga recently stood up to protest the harsh criticism.
The Born This Way superstar recently posted a half naked picture of herself to her website with the caption, “Bulimia and anorexia since I was 15,” to show that she is struggling with her eating disorder but taking care of herself.
Gaga has been receiving some judgments from the media this week since photos came out of her looking a little thicker than what we usually see, but they could have been photoshopped.
Even though she admitted to the NY Daily News that she gained 25 pounds recently, she still looks like her same beautiful self in other recent pictures.
Gaga decided to take action and made a sub-section on her Little Monsters website called “Body Revolution” for fans to talk about their “perceived flaws” as she puts it:
“My mother and I created the BORN THIS WAY FOUNDATION for one reason: “to inspire bravery.” This profile is an extension of that dream. Be brave and celebrate with us your “perceived flaws,” as society tells us. May we make our flaws famous, and thus redefine the heinous.”
She then also wrote:
“Hey Guys its Gaga… Now that the body revolution has begun, be brave and post a photo of you that celebrates your triumph over insecurities.”
The page has already gotten hundreds of photos and stories from fans that share their insecurities and inspirations, which could be a big help to those fighting eating disorders like Lady Gaga.
This is a great way for Lady Gaga to show her fans that she is just like them and is fighting a similar battle to many across the world.
We love seeing Gaga involved with her fans and sticking to her guns!
