Lady Gaga may have more firsthand experience than anyone on earth with being publicly shamed for her body. Now, the Mother Monster is speaking out about her history with eating disorders in hopes of starting a "body revolution."
Gaga posted the above photo online along with the caption, "I've battled Bulimia and anorexia since I was 15." Reaching out, as it does, to Gaga's nearly 30 million Twitter followers, the photo has received an immediate and emotional online response from thousands of Little Monsters who have followed Gaga's lead by opening up about their own struggles with eating disorders.
The Internet has been abuzz with talk of Gaga's weight gain ever since she appeared in public looking several pounds heavier during her current tour. She responded by addressing the criticisms in a radio interview and admitting that she'd recently gained about 25 pounds.
