Despite a positive reception from many of her Super Bowl LI halftime show performance on Sunday, Lady Gaga is still fighting off some criticism.
This week, some on social media said the singer should lose weight, referring to the moment when Gaga changed from her sparkly Versace bodysuit to a crop top that showed off her abs. Late Tuesday, Gaga decided to address all of the talk herself in an Instagram post.
“I heard my body is a topic of conversation so I wanted to say, I’m proud of my body and you should be proud of yours too,” she wrote.
Leading up to her big performance, Gaga posted photos on Instagram as she worked out in preparation. Her trainer Harley Pasternak even snapped a photo of Gaga warming up backstage at the Super Bowl using TRX straps.
During her performance, Gaga wore a Versace bodysuit covered in Swarovski crystals and matching boots, before changing into a crop top inspired by football shoulder pads.
