Striking back at tabloids who labeled her ‘meaty’, the Born this way singer posted half-naked pics of herself on her fan website, littleMonsters.com.
Inviting fans to share their ‘imperfections’ Gaga beckoned her devotees to "be brave and celebrate with us your 'perceived flaws..." by admitting that she has suffered with anorexia and bulimia since the age of 15.
Four very real photos of her were subsequently published to re-enforce her perception of body pride and to encourage her new initiative Body Revolution.
This has been met with fans broadcasting similar stories relating to their own struggles with weight gain, weight loss and even events and diseases that affected their physical form.
One fan responded ‘...I have been trying to recover (from bulimia) so much but its killing me...you inspire me. If you can be strong, I can too.’
Touching isn’t it?
