Lady Gaga's incredible Super Bowl Halftime Show had her pulling off major stunts, flipping upside down, and dropping her microphone in the most well-deserved mic drop of all time. But the most surprising part of all was the horrific body-shaming commentary she received after the show. In a ridiculous turn of events, instead of recognizing the pure greatness with which Gaga had blessed the halftime show, some viewers actually had the nerve to comment on her appearance, suggesting that she "do some crunches if she wants to show her flabby belly." Yep, appalling.
But after Gaga's fans responded to the haters, she decided to take matters into her own hands and delivered the best response to those body-shaming critics. Gaga took to Instagram to post a photo from her performance with a message that will leave anyone who's struggled with body image beaming with pride.
"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. No matter who you are or what you do. I could give you a million reasons why you don't need to cater to anyone or anything to succeed. Be you, and be relentlessly you. That's the stuff of champions. thank you so much everyone for supporting me. I love you guys. Xoxo, gaga."
We applaud you, Gaga!
