Lady Gaga Weight Gain: Singer Trying to Lose 25 Pounds
Lady Gaga has put on 25 pounds – but she says that Italian food, not alcohol, is the culprit. According to The Huffington Post, the 26 year-old singer told radio host Elvis Duran: “I’m dieting right now, because I gained, like, 25 pounds. 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.”
You can see Lady Gaga’s fuller figure in the left photo, where she’s wearing a red outfit in Amsterdam on September 18. She’s not fat by any means – but you can see the difference. Of course, people have actually criticized Gaga for being too skinny in the past… she can’t win.
She blames her father’s cooking for the extra pounds; he’s opened the restaurant Joanne Trattoria at 70 W. 68th St. in Manhattan. “I love eating pasta and pizza,” she explained. “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.”
If Gaga wants to slim down, she should probably stop smoking weed on stage…the only thing more delicious than pizza is pizza when you have the munchies!
