When in Milano, do as the Milanese do, and that means put your best fashion foot forward. Lady Gaga was in Milan, located in her ancestral country of Italy and she channeled fellow Italian, designer diva Donatella Versace, while wearing a safety pin dress that showed off plenty of her tattoos.
Rather than attack critics that have ridiculed her for her recent weight gain, Lady Gaga took the power back by launching Body Revolution 2013, where she posted unaltered photos of herself and her body, prompting her dedicated throng of little monsters to follow suit. It's sparking a tremendous dialogue and discussion, all the while helping to debunk body image myths. Experts have weighed in to celebrate the Gaga-generated movement for how much it can help girls struggling with their weight or who have distorted images of their bodies.
Going fresh-faced isn't usually an option for most famous folks, but certain women in pop music aren't afraid to bare their natural faces sans makeup. Such is the case with Lady Gaga and Rihanna, who have zero qualms about sharing photos of themselves without makeup all over the Internet. While both of these ladies are equally gorgeous in their own ways without their lipstick and mascara, who do you think looks best without makeup?
The rivalry between Lady Gaga and Madonna, which was started, stoked and supported by Madonna with her near-constant onstage disses of Gaga, nearly came to an end in the Bronx last month. Rumor has it that Madonna extended an olive branch and offered native New Yorker (and Yankee fan) Gaga a chance to duet onstage when Madge played Yankee Stadium. Gaga turned her down, though!
Two weeks ago, a DJ White Shadow-produced track featuring rapping which people thought was delivered by Lady Gaga leaked. It featured lots of boastful references to the Mother Monster, including a refrain of "Cake like Lady Gaga." Does the reference to cake anything to do with her weight gain and the media frenzy over it, especially since there were new lines added to a new version of the song?
Lady Gaga performed 'Hair' in Zurich, Switzerland, looking adorable wearing her ARTPOP leather hat. She took a moment to address all the negative press that's landing on her doorstop lately, from the "fat" comments to the "slut" label slapped on her by a politician. Gaga reads her press, but she doesn’t let it dampen or sour or her mood.
Lady Gaga posted revealing photos of herself in lingerie on her LittleMonsters.com site earlier this week, bravely and boldly responding to the comments that she had gotten fat simply because she packed on a few pounds and sported a curvier frame. She has started what's being dubbed "Body Revolution," as her little monsters as also posting photos of their bodies as they are.
