Lady Gaga recently said she was dieting after gaining 25 pounds — and after photos of her looking a little curvier than usual garnered criticism from some. But Tuesday (Sept. 25) Gaga joined the “body revolution” on her social networking site, LittleMonsters.com, posting photos of herself in lingerie and sharing her weight struggles with fans.
“Bulimia and anorexia since I was 15,” she writes. “But today I join the BODY REVOLUTION. To Inspire Bravery.”
“My weight/loss/gain since i was child has tormented me,” she continues. “No amount of help has ever healed my pain about it. But YOU have.”
In addition to crediting her fans for helping her, she also says her boyfriend Taylor Kinney has helped her develop a healthier body image.
“My boyfriend prefers me curvier, when I eat and am healthy and not so worried about my looks, I’m happy. Happier than I’ve ever been.”
Earlier this year, Gaga admitted to having had an eating disorder when she was younger and upset some fans a couple of months later when she tweeted, “Just killed back to back spin classes. Eating a salad dreaming of a cheeseburger #PopSingersDontEat.”
