(PCM) It’s no surprise when Lady Gaga appears in the news for her shocking wardrobe choices, but lately, the attention hasn’t exactly been on the costume itself. The 26-year-old pop star admits that she’s gained weight, and although she is dieting to lose the weight, she’s not beating herself up over it!
“I’m dieting right now, because I gained, like, 25 pounds,” Gaga told radio host Elvis Duran. “And you know I really don’t feel bad about it, not even for a second. I have to be on such a strict diet constantly. It’s hard because it’s a quite vigorous show, so I tend to bulk up, get muscular, and I really don’t like that. So I’m trying to find a new balance.”
Despite many people’s assumptions that the weight gain stems from too much alcohol use, Gaga says it all comes down to her love of good Italian food.
“I love eating pasta and pizza,” says Gaga. “I’m a New York Italian girl. That’s why I have been staying out of New York. My father opened a restaurant. It’s so amazing . . . it’s so freaking delicious, but I’m telling you I gain five pounds every time I go in there. So my dad wants me to eat at the restaurant, and I’m, like, I’ve got to go where I can drink green juice.”
Deprivation is no way to live your life! She looks beautiful either way, but Lady Gaga is a prime example of what happens when you try and follow a very strict diet for too long; depriving yourself is not the answer. Balance is key!
