Lady Gaga won't hide weight gain

26 September 2012, 08:52

Los Angeles - Lady Gaga has "no intention" of hiding her weight gain.

The Marry The Night hitmaker recently revealed she had gained 11.4kg after over-eating at her father's New York restaurant, and while she has come under criticism, she is refusing to cover-up.

A source told The Huffington Post: "She has no intention of going on a diet or hiding under baggy clothes until she loses some weight. That just isn't her style. She tells her fans to love themselves and that is something that she doesn't just preach."

However, she also believes some of the gain has been in muscle after dancing on stage on her Born This Way world tour.

Dad's restaurant

The source added: "She has said before that when she's on tour she gets muscular. If you look at pictures from the start and the end of her tours you can see that. It's not a look she says she really likes, but after working out onstage like she does, it happens naturally. There is nothing she can do about it."

The petite star previously joked she gained 5 pounds (2.3kg) every time she went to her dad's eating establishment.

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."
