Lady Gaga met up with fashion designer Donatella Versace in Milan, Italy, yesterday. The 26-year-old singer wore a skin-tight Versace dress, with multiple cut-outs. After announcing she had “gained like, 25 pounds”, Gaga certainly didn’t mind showing off her new curves. If you ask me, she looks amazing! She admitted she “doesn’t feel bad about putting on the weight”, but that she is dieting to get back into shape.
Indeed, her trainer, Harley Pasternak, tells the new issue of Us Weekly (out now), “She will slim down. But whatever weight she’s at, she looks phenomenal!”
Though her weight gain made headlines, Gaga used it as an opportunity to speak about positive body image via her website, Little Monsters.
“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,” the Grammy Award winner wrote. “Watching you all create a safe space online for people to be compassionate is the greatest gift you could ever give me.”
Gaga added that her boyfriend, Taylor Kinney, 31, “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,” she added. “And I am proud at any size.”
Gaga shared the picture above on her Facebook page, and said, “Some legends, truly are. Pic of me walking into Gianni’s apt, which she covered in 40,000 roses. I love u Donatella.”
