Lady Gaga literally does not have time for her haters.
A handful of people on social media critiqued her supposedly unflattering appearance during her Super Bowl halftime show — particularly her midsection, with some horribles going so far as to call it a “beer belly.”
In true Gaga fashion, the “Born This Way” singer shut down all that nonsense in an inspiring Instagram post. She writes: “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 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
Meanwhile, I don’t get why body shaming is still a thing. Doesn’t it seem incredibly boring? Aren’t there better things to do like, I don’t know, get involved in your community or binge watch “Parks & Recreation” for the umpteenth time? My goodness.
Anyway, big ups to Gaga for normalizing the normal and staying positive — even if she did fail to get sufficiently political during her gig.
