Not one to shy away from the limelight, Lady Gaga launches A Body Revolution 2013 on her Little Monsters site, encouraging fans to embrace and share their flaws. Check out the gallery above of some of her braver moments- from crazy costumes to posting pics that triumph over insecurities.
Lady Gaga has been criticised lately for her apparent weight gain. Sick of the criticism, Gaga decided to turn a negative into a positive by launching a page titled A Body Revolution 2013 on her Little Monsters site, encouraging fans to embrace and share their flaws.
Fans have already flooded the site with personal photos, which Gaga herself has been captioning. In one, a fan is looking at herself in the mirror with her stomach exposed. "Emily Rose recovering from anorexia. We support your bravery and have compassion for your pain," Gaga wrote encouragingly. "(and huh gUUrl, you don't need to diet ur FINE AS HELL.)"
But fans aren't only posting photos — thousands have already commented on the website, thanking Gaga for sharing her struggles and giving them an outlet to share their own insecurities. "You give us the strength to take the parts we are supposed to be ashamed of and make them into our pride," Vernoika commented. "Thank you so much for always believing in us and trusting us enough to let us in on your personal life and struggles."
Not long before launching the initiative, Gaga reached out to her fans in a separate post, explaining that they were the sole inspiration behind A Body Revolution 2013. She also addressed her constant battle with her weight and revealed she's happier than ever with her body. "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," Gaga wrote.
"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," she continued. "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."
