NEW YORK — Lady Gaga is aware that some less than kind comments were made about her physique during her Super Bowl halftime performance.
But the “Born This Way” singer is not sweating it.
“I heard my body is a topic of conversation so I wanted to say, I’m proud of my body and you should be proud of yours too,” she wrote on Instagram in the caption of a photo of her performing. “No matter who you are or what you do.”

I heard my body is a topic of conversation so I wanted to say, I'm proud of my body and you should be proud of yours too. No matter who you are or what you do. I could give you a million reasons why you don't need to cater to anyone or anything to succeed. Be you, and be relentlessly you. That's the stuff of champions. thank you so much everyone for supporting me. I love you guys. Xoxo, gaga
Gaga was trolled and called “fat” among other things after she donned multiple outfits during the halftime show, including one that exposed her midriff.
The singer also offered up some advice in the caption to her fans.
“Be you, and be relentlessly you,” she wrote. “That’s the stuff of champions.”
Her words were hailed on social media by many who noted the multitude of women celebrities who have been criticized for their bodies.
We as a society need to chang our messed up perception of a "good body" because Gaga's body was banging. Idk what y'all were watching.
