Lady Gaga has indeed been making headlines for her recent weight gain, and now she is certainly going to stay there after she publicly questioned why nobody was discussing Adele’s large figure but remained persistent on criticizing hers.
The once extremely skinny pop singer put a little meat on her bones – and this time it wasn’t because of a meat suit.
The public watched the “Judas” singer put on a good amount of weight in what seemed to be a relatively short time. In fact, the weight gain happened so quickly that even Gaga’s mother wasn’t sure if the rumors were true or not.
The 26-year-old admitted that her mom called her asking her if she really did gain weight.
Needless to say, the unique individual behind “Born This Way” didn’t mind the world talking about her weight gain a bit, but when it was making headlines on major news networks it prompted Gaga to make a quick comparison to Adele that could be a bit offensive.
“Adele is bigger than me, how come nobody says anything about it,” the little monsters leader questioned before putting a nice twist on her question. “She’s so wonderful and I think her confidence is something I have to match. She has set the bar very high for a lot of women.”
If the pop diva is growing tiresome of people commenting on her weight, it seems extremely rude that she would try to pass the negative spotlight on to someone else.
“I was acutely aware of some photos of me on the internet… and I didn’t really care,” the “Bad Romance” songstress explained. “But when I heard it was on the news, where they talk about wars, the economy crashing and the election – I just though, ‘This is f***ing ridiculous.’”
Perhaps the quirky performer really is on to something when you consider the fact that her weight was featured on several news networks, while the threats to Adele’s baby weren’t covered nearly as much.
The real twist on the entire story is the relationship between Adele and Lady G and whether or not there is more tension there than anyone will want to admit.
Last year the Queen Monster had to scold her little monsters for being so rude to the young powerhouse vocalist.
Twitter was filled with comments from Gaga’s followers commenting on the British singer’s weight. One of the “Love Game” singer’s followers actually suggested that the blonde haired diva didn’t wear her meat suit one night in fear that the soulful Brit would eat it.
It is likely that these same little monsters – which they are indeed for attacking Adele without any reason even though their leader is a strong advocate for anti-bullying – are the same people behind the heartless tweets about Adele’s new baby. (No wonder she wanted to keep things private.)
“So Adele was pregnant all along, I thought she was just fat,” one heartless stranger tweeted.
One tweet crossed the line from rude to just inhumane as another person tweeted, “I’m pretty sure that Adele secretly hopes she’ll have postpartum depression, so she can make one heck of an album after it.”
Perhaps, Lady G should be happy that her weight is in the spotlight and she isn’t dealing with something as person as having complete strangers attacking her and her new born child.
Needless to say, this also means the “Monster” crooner was dead wrong about nobody talking about Adele’s weight.
Even Joan Rivers seemed to abandon her own decency and tweeted, “Congratulations to Adele on the birth of her 68 pound 8 ounces bouncing baby boy.”
Looks like Halle Berry isn’t so crazy for wanting to move to France after all.
As for Gaga, she has been receiving nothing but support as the media tried to attack her weight.
Her boyfriend, Taylor Kinney, admitted that he actually loved his lady’s new curves and her weight gain had nothing to do with her drive and ambition.
“She works incredibly hard and is very strong and inspirational like mom, with a great work ethic,” Taylor told The Sun.
Hopefully, Hollywood will soon come to realize that someone’s weight gain shouldn’t really be much of a headline and that by focusing on body image so much they are breeding even more individuals who think it’s okay to verbally attack a new mother simply because she isn’t a size 2.
