Lady Gaga: I've Been Battling Bulimia and Anorexia Since I Was 15

Lady Gaga has come under some recent criticism for gaining weight, specifically 25 pounds, and unfortunately for the singer, some unflattering photos made the rounds on the internet.

Yeah, we’re guilty of spreading them too.

To “get back” at the haters, or simply to embrace her body and say “Not sorry bout it!” Lady Gaga has posted photos of her body in a teeny yellow bra and panties and I have no idea what version of Gaga showed up in those 25 lbs+ photos, because the Gaga in these underwear photos looks great.

Some of the captions on the revealing photos included “BREED some m$therf*cking COMPASSION,” and “today I join the body revolution” and most shocking of all, “bulimia and anorexia since I was 15.”

Gaga has spoken out about her struggle with bulimia before, but it’s most shocking today, paired with the picture and during the backlash of her “Gaga gained weight” internet fiasco.

Gaga’s semi-naked pics are part of her new project, A Body Revolution, which encourages her followers to post pictures of their own weight gain, loss, surgery, scars, acne etc. and be empowered by it.

“My mother and I created the Born This Way Foundation for one reason: “to inspire bravery.” This profile is an extension of that dream. Be brave and celebrate with us your “perceived flaws,” as society tells us. May we make our flaws famous, and thus redefine the heinous,” Gaga wrote on her social media site.

This comes just hours after she tweeted a photo of herself naked and on a toilet as photographed by Terry Richardson. I don’t think she intended the toilet shot as part of “the body revolution” but it kind of works. It is, after all, “redefining the heinous.” Gaga makes a toilet look fierce!
