Lady Gaga confesses eating disorders with half-nude photos
The big joke last week was that Lady Gaga admitted she'd gained 25 pounds and need to lose weight for her current tour. This was accompanied by plenty of unflattering photos hitting the Internet. Those were apaprently enough to kick the hornet's nest, though, because Gaga fired back with a series of photos on her social networking site admitting she's long fought body image issues.
The performer posted four photos of herself in just a bra and panties on LittleMonsters.com, captioned in sequence: "Bulimia and anorexia since I was 15. But today I join the BODY REVOLUTION. To Inspire Bravery. and BREED some m$therf*cking COMPASSION" She then asked fans to post their own body photos to foster a discussion that "celebrates your triumph over insecurities."
You've got to hand it to Gaga -- she never misses a PR opportunity. It's pretty savvy to fire back about allegations of being fat to post half-naked photos and dare people to find fault, as if it's not enough she does that onstage every night, anyway.
