Lady Gaga has been raising some eyebrows recently after photos surfaced of the singer looking a little heftier than usual.
But no one is more aware of the weight gain than Gaga herself, who says she’s just an Italian girl who likes to eat.
According to Gaga, she’s gained around 25 POUNDS! But she isn’t concerned, she’s already working on getting back into shape.
“I’m dieting right now, because I gained, like, 25 pounds,” Gaga told radio host Elvis Duran.
“And you know I really don’t feel bad about it, not even for a second,” she added. “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.”
It seems to be the Lady’s love of pizza and pasta that is causing some of the damage.
“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 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.”
Gaga’s father, Joe Germanotta, owns Joanne Trattoria in Manhattan, New York.
Can’t wait to have you back in fighting shape Gaga!
