File Under - Gaga gets even cooler.
Say what you will about her music, or her over the top style, but the Lady has bravery and class. Lately she has been getting hit by the media for her weight gain, so she fired back with honesty and pictures.
On Tuesday, Gaga posted this photo of herself wearing nothing but a yellow bra and underwear, along with this caption: “Bulimia and anorexia since I was 15.” With the picture, she announced the launch of a new movement, “A Body Revolution 2013,” meant to encourage body acceptance.
The Mother Monster’s positive message resonated with her Little Monsters, as you might expect. Soon after her post went up, fans began flooding the website with photos of themselves in their underwear and sharing their own personal struggles with body image issues. There are some amazing stories posted on the site.
Maybe there are people with perfect bodies out there somewhere, but I would wager that even they think things like, "I wish I didn't have this scar...." We all have body issues. Many thanks to Gaga for throwing down the gauntlet to help us face them.
