Lady Gaga would 'rather be fat than shallow'

11 September 2014, 07:12

Los Angeles - Lady Gaga says she'd "rather be fat than shallow".

The Bad Romance hitmaker - who previously admitted her weight fluctuates because of her love of Italian food - lashed out at critics of her figure after photographs of her in a flesh-coloured swimsuit attracted some negative comments on Instagram.

The 28-year-old star captioned one of the images, taken in Dubai: "#bodyrevolution Proud at any size, because the inside is what really counts. Plus, it's all how you pose! Just ask the supermodels!"

Gaga received support from fans via Twitter and made the effort to reply as well:

The Applause hitmaker, who also recently insisted she is "curvy and proud", previously admitted she used to battle with an eating disorder.

She said at the time: "I have struggled with an eating disorder for over 10 years and I take that very seriously, I take the struggle of others very seriously."

But earlier this year, she claimed she had overcome her troubles.

She said: "I am better with food. I don't have an eating disorder anymore. I'm also better at not letting people take advantage of me. Five years ago, when I spotted someone with a hidden agenda, I allowed them to stay around me... I speak up now.
