SMASH OR PASS: Lady Gaga
Are you feeling the 25 pounds heavier Gaga or was she never an option at all?
Lady Gaga is fat. Or at least that’s how she views it after gaining 25 pounds. But instead of fretting about it (yea I said Fret) she is using it as an opportunity to get women to feel good about themselves. Her new, Body Revolution 2013, is designed to get her fans or “Little Monsters” as she calls them to post their own photos and show that at any size they can love themselves. Along with these photos she posted the caption: “Bulimia and anorexia since I was 15…be brave and post a photo of you that celebrates your triumph over insecurities.”
Thousands of fans have responded. She has been pleasantly surprised by the reaction.
“I have been startled and overwhelmed with pride and emotion the past few days,” she wrote. “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. 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 prefers me curvier, when I eat and am healthy and not so worried about my looks, I’m happy. Happier then 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.”
So while I’m not sure that this in anyway fits in the Fat Back category we do celebrate the curvier proportions here at the Nation. So what say you? SMASH or PASS the new more healthy Gaga frame?
“A Body Revolution 2013″ is part of Gaga’s preexisting Born This Way Foundation created to combat bullying and low self esteem. “My mother and I created the BORN THIS WAY FOUNDATION for one reason: to inspire bravery,” Gaga wrote. “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.”
Do you think Gaga looks “heinous” in the photos below?
