Lady Gaga and Other Celebrities’ Guilty Pleasures
It looks like Lady Gaga ate that infamous meat dress. How else to explain her portly physique of late?
The music goddess set off alarm bells with pop culture experts and fans alike when she showed up on tour with extra layers of skin and meat on her usually lithe frame. But Gaga says she’s not even tripping over the weight gain. She’s simply an Italian girl from New York who gorged herself on pasta and meatballs during some down time with the family.
“I’m dieting right now, because I gained, like, 25 pounds,” Gaga told New York radio host Elvis Duran when she called into his show just before she hit the road. “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.”
Speculation had it that Gaga’s weight gain was the result of excessive alcohol consumption. But Gaga begs to her critics to pump the breaks on the guessing and innuendos.
“I love eating pasta and pizza,” says Gaga. “I’m a New York Italian girl. That’s why I have been staying out of New York. My father [Joe Germanotta] 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.”
We’re not mad at you, Lady Gaga. In fact, you are far from the only one who likes to loves to devour pizza and indulge in guilty pleasure from time to time.
