You go, Lady Gaga! *snaps * Last week it seemed like people could NOT stop talking about Mother Monster’s weight, and while we typically shy away from the touchy stuff, we just HAD to comment on Gaga’s oh-so-amazing response to the whole debacle. It all started with pics from Lady Gaga’s Amsterdam performance where she was criticized for showing off a fuller figure onstage. (Um, why don’t Y’ALL trying wearing nothing but fishnets and a leotard in front of thousands of people, and then we’ll talk. *hair flip*) But, in true Gaga fashion, she didn’t let her haters have the last word. On Saturday, she stepped out in Paris wearing a super-sized, over-the-top two-tone hot pink and blue Comme Des Garçons coat, and tweeted: “And thank to my fans who love me no matter what, and know the meaning of real beauty&compassion. I really love you,” with a link to a Marilyn Monroe quote that read, “To all the girls that think you’re ugly because you’re not a size 0, you’re the beautiful one. It’s society that’s ugly.” A-MAZING.
And thank to my fans who love me no matter what, and know the meaning of real beauty&compassion. I really love you. littlemonsters.com/image/505d58a3…

Coincidentally on the same day that she tweeted this response, she stepped out in the most oversized coat she could find, which made us SOSOSO happy. We love that she didn’t ignore all the hateful remarks, but instead totally took it to the next level by wearing a shapeless ensemble to give people something to REALLY talk about. *claps* We love Gaga for her killer voice and amazing fashion sense—whatever size she may be—and she proved once again that no matter how much people try to bring her down, she stands up for herself in the most amazing way possible. Give it up for Gaga, y’all!
