Guys! Are you ready for this? I’m about to show you a picture of, like, the most morbidly obese woman in the whole entire history of humankind:
I know! SHOCKING, RIGHT? That right there is none other than international pop star Lady Gaga, who responded to the most recent rumors of weight gain by posting unedited photos of herself to her website, so that we could all point and laugh at just how incredibly unhealthy she’s become, and judge accordingly. Except–OOPSIES–she’s not unhealthy, just perfectly normal, so why did she feel pressured to prove this to us? OH, THAT’S RIGHT: because our culture loves nothing more than ignoring someone’s talent and worth as a FUCKING PERSON in favor of gossiping about what size jeans they might be wearing these days, and FUCKING HELL, I’m going to hide my daughter in the foothills of the Himalayas when she reaches puberty because FUCK. THIS. SHIT.
Gaga had apparently been targeted by the worthless, shit-for-brains media, over what was perceived to be a bit of weight gain (an actual person? Gaining weight? UNHEARD OF, I SAY), and instead of weathering this latest round of bullshit in silence, she posted a series of photos to her website along with the confession that she’s been battling anorexia and bulimia since age 15. Subtext: THANKS A HEAP, COCKSUCKERS, FOR ADDING SOME FUEL TO THE DISORDERED EATING FIRE.
Not that it matters to the hateful fucks who like to call her fat–whatever the fuck that’s supposed to mean or do–but Lady Gaga looks nothing but healthy to me in the photos. In fact, I would like to take this opportunity to ask her if she wouldn’t mind trading me asses, because DAMN.
Some might say she should have ignored the latest shitstorm surrounding whatever weight she may have gained (seeing as how it is NONE OF ANYONE’S FUCKING BUSINESS), but I think she made a bold statement here, and I think she did it for the benefit of her fans, a great deal of whom are young and undoubtedly struggling with body issues of their own. On Twitter, Gaga posted a pic of Marilyn Monroe with the following quote: “To all the girls who think you’re ugly because you’re not a size 0, you’re the beautiful ones. It’s society who’s ugly,” and then went on to add “Thank you to my fans who love me no matter what and know the meaning of real beauty and compassion. I really love you.”
Class act, my friend.
