So I didn’t come across this second Lady Gaga story until I had finalized the finishing touches on the previous Lady Gaga post, so guys who don’t appreciate Lady Gaga all over the f-cking place, I apologize in advance for having three Lady Gaga stories run today, two of which I’m directly responsible for.
No, the latest (and this time I mean “latest” for sure) news about Lady Gaga is how she’s put on thirty pounds over the past few weeks, and when I saw the most recent pictures, I was like … yeah. I believe this. Thirty pounds, easily. And wow—I’m not saying that she looks bad or anything, or that it’s a negative thing that she gained thirty pounds, because I don’t think putting on weight should be a judged thing, but ‘wow’ because it’s surprising and it’s obvious. ‘Wow’ because it’s kind of interesting that Lady Gaga’s “let herself go,” if that’s the way you want to see it (and that’s the way a lot of people are going to see it).
Here’s one suggestion, from Radar Online, as to why Lady Gaga’s porked up in recent weeks:
The normally skinny singer has suddenly fattened up and piled on the pounds, sparking concerned reactions from health experts who believe she may have been drinking too many calories.
When the 5’1″ Bad Romance singer hit the stage for a concert in Amsterdam on Monday, it was clear that there was a lot more of her hitting the scale nowadays!
“Gaga appears to have gained at least 30 pounds,” nutritionist Majid Ali, who has not treated the star, told RadarOnline.com in an exclusive interview.
So, alcohol’s to blame? Well, maybe. She has been over-consumptive lately, and a big, long drunken bender would explain all of the hanging-out-with-Lindsay-Lohan stuff, but I don’t think it’s just alcohol. No, even Lady Gaga herself has claimed that she cooks a mean Italian meal, and she loves to eat:
“The rumors I am a dab hand in the kitchen are completely true. I come from an Italian family – what more can I say? I love to cook. I am really good at Italian food. So I make great meatballs, pasta and all sorts. I love it.”
Last, do you guys remember earlier in the year when she Tweeted this?:
Just killed back-to-back spin classes. Eating a salad dreaming of a cheeseburger. Pop singers don’t eat. I was born this way.
Because I do—and I think it’s nice that girlfriend finally put down the damn salad and picked up a cheeseburger or two, if that’s what she really wanted all this time.
