Lady Gaga has come under some scrutiny after her 25 pound weight gain. For the past few days Gaga has had to defend her body and on Tuesday she took to her website to discuss the situation and even say her boyfriend, Taylor Kinney loves her with some curves.
“I have been startled and overwhelmed with pride and emotion the past few days. Gratitude mostly. Seeing you post photos of things on your bodies and in your minds that you feel society tells you you should be ashamed of. You are showing them you have no shame. Watching you all create a safe space online for people to be compassionate is the greatest gift you could ever give me.”
“My weight/loss/gain since i was child has tormented me. No amount of help has ever healed my pain about it. But you have. My boyfriend [Taylor Kinney] prefers me curvier. When I eat and am healthy and not so worried about my looks, I’m happy. Happier than I’ve ever been. I am not going to go on a psycho-spree because of scrutiny.”
“This is who I am. And I am proud at any size. And I love you, and want you to be proud in any form you may take as well. Please don’t look for kindness in critics, go where you know the gold is. Here, in our hearts. Love, Gaga.”
