Lady Gaga has uploaded pictures of herself in lingerie, 25lbs heavier on her website littlemonsters.com. On the caption of one of the photos, she writes “Bulimia and Anorexia since I was 15”. On another, she writes “Day to-day I am uncontrollably swollen and it makes it so hard to exercise. My body has changed a lot from lupus- and nothing I used to do to stay fit works now. I’m very self-conscious about my body, but today I am inspired to be brave”.
Throughout the site, she has her fans, which she refers to as “Little Monsters”, upload pictures of themselves with inspirational captures about overcoming insecurities, and embracing their beauty- flaws and all. Pictures of people with scars, gap-teeth, and various skin diseases are flooding the site as everyone is learning to live with their insecurities. Gaga has started a “Body Revolution 2013” which is inspiring people love and embrace themselves. It seems to be catching on quickly!
