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.”

Gaga was trolled and called “fat” among other things after she donned multiple outfits during the halftime show, including one which 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.

Gaga is riding high otherwise. She just announced a world tour and sales of her music spiked by 1000 percent following the Super Bowl according to Nielsen Music.


  • Really?

    Like Lady Gaga. Actual talent. Hard pressed to even find a tweet of hers with a swear in it or a picture of her falling out of a limo drunk. She looks freaky time to time but a pretty class act. Last year’s super bowl national anthem was a good indicator that this year’s halftime show wouldn’t be too controversial I think. She didn’t butcher the song like most artists do. She gave it the respect it deserved. And I would love to be as “fat” as Lady Gaga.

    I’m glad I happened upon this issue. I wasn’t a big fan of Lady Gaga before, but she is definitely growing on me. I’m 54 years old and I really enjoyed the half time concert she performed. It was exciting and even though her outfit was a tad risky, it covered what needed covered. As for the rude comments people made, let them try to do a better job! The entire performance deserves an A+ !

    If she was 20 pounds lighter, they’d be accusing her of an eating disorder or saying she’s on drugs. STFU. I thought she looked great.
