Lady Gaga slums back at haters who criticise her body

Nope. Lady Gaga wasn’t having it when she caught wind of some haters trying to body shame her for how she looked during her spectacular Super Bowl LI halftime performance. Reacting to a string of tweets on Sunday night (Feb. 5) claiming she had a “muffin top” or “beer gut,” the singer shut it down.

“I’m proud of my body and you should be proud of yours too,” she wrote in an Instagram post on Tuesday (Feb. 7). Gaga, 30 — who has spent years fighting against bullying and encouraging her Little Monsters to love themselves just the way they are through her Born This Way Foundation — said she caught wind of the fact that her body has become a topic of conversation and sought to encourage her fans to tune out the noise.

Little Monsters weren’t having it either, with a number backing up the singer on Twitter.

Either way, Gaga is getting the last laugh, as her U.K. and U.S. sales have exploded since Sunday’s gig, which FOX reported pulled in an astounding 117.5 million viewers, making it the second-most-viewed halftime show in Super Bowl history, behind Katy Perry’s set at Super XLIX, which drew 120.7 million viewers.

Lady Gaga tops Billboard charts for the forth time with her new single Joanne

Lady Gaga has a million reasons to be happy after Joanne took the number one spot on the Billboard albums chart in its debut week. Joanne, Gaga’s fifth solo LP, sold 201,000 units, far exceeding the expected 180,000 units music-industry forecasters predicted, reports Billboard.  This is the fourth time the “Perfect Illusions”singer has found herself in the number-one album spot — previously she claimed the title with Born This Way, Artpop, and a joint venture with Tony Bennett, Cheek to Cheek — and the win is a significant one: she is now the only female-artist to have earned the top title with four different albums in the 2010s. As of now, power houses Beyoncé and Taylor Swift each trail Gaga with three chart-topping albums this decade. Gaga, who has been promoting the new release with appearances on James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke and Saturday Night Live, was elated by the news, and responded on Twitter, “That’s a grand slam!” Read her tweet below.
