In the wake of a weight gain controversy, most celebrities respond with either vitriol or a giant shrug heaved in the direction of the press. But of course, Lady Gaga isn’t most celebrities.
So after being plagued with catty remarks over her self-professed 25-pound weight gain this past week (ugh, people), Gaga has taken two courses of action:
1. Wear Comme des Garçons.
The pop star stepped out in Paris on Saturday in one of the fabulous oversized “flat” coats from Rei Kawakubo‘s Fall 2012 collection, which effectively turned her into a two dimensional form. And while she had plenty of collections to choose from — the lumps and bumps pieces come to mind — the blue and pink ensemble definitely sent a message you couldn’t ignore. Gaga also responded with a Twitter shoutout to her little monsters:
“And thank to my fans who love me no matter what, and know the meaning of real beauty&compassion. I really love you.”
2. Strip down to your skivvies online and start A Body Revolution.
This is the name of the egg-dwelling pop star’s latest program as part of her Born This Way Foundation, which she announced this morning on her own social media site Little Monsters. There isn’t much in the way of info yet, but it’s safe to say Gaga is going full throttle towards encouraging body acceptance in her fans. To kick off the venture, she’s posted a series of un-retouched, not-necessarily-flattering photos of herself posing in her underwear for the lens of (who else?) Terry Richardson.
Check out both below.
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
