Even though Lady Gaga’s Superbowl performance has been universally praised, there are still a bunch of people out there with something negative to say about it.
Not being able to find a flaw in the show itself, trolls directed their attention to her body instead – making her non-existent ‘pot belly’ the main focus of their criticism.
Being the absolute worst kind of people, the trolls basically held up a magnifying glass to Lady Gaga’s figure and slammed it for being ‘too doughy’ for their personal taste.
As if anyone cares.
Never being one to let that kind of thing slide, Lady Gaga clapped back at the body-shamer brigade by saying that she’s “proud” of her body, despite the wave of criticism she’s faced for it.
I heard my body is a topic of conversation so I wanted to say, I’m proud of my body and you should be proud of yours too. No matter who you are or what you do. I could give you a million reasons why you don’t need to cater to anyone or anything to succeed. Be you, and be relentlessly you. That’s the stuff of champions. thank you so much everyone for supporting me. I love you guys. Xoxo, gaga
