Lady Gaga blames dad for weight gain

21 September 2012, 12:00

Los Angeles - Lady Gaga blames her father's restaurant for her recent weight gain.

The Bad Romance singer has put on over 11kg recently and says it's because the food at her father Joe Germanotta's New York eatery is so delicious, she can't help tucking in to pizza and pasta every time she visits.

Speaking about the restaurant, Joanne Trattoria, on New York's Elvis Duran and the Morning Show, she said: "I love eating pasta and I'm a New York Italian girl. That's why I have been staying out of New York.

"My father opened a restaurant. It's so amazing... it's so freaking delicious, but I'm telling you I gain five pounds every time I go there.

"So my dad wants me to eat at the restaurant, and I'm like, 'I've got to go where I can drink green juice.'"

Gaga, whose weight has fluctuated in the past, insists she is happy with her new curves although she is "dieting right now, because I gained, like, 25 pounds".

She said: "I really don't feel bad about it, not even for a second.

"It's hard because I have a vigorous show, so I tend to bulk up, get muscular, and I really don't like that. So I'm trying to find a new balance.
