Lady Gaga ridicules hype around her gaining weight

Los Angeles: Singer Lady Gaga says she is aware of her weight gain and does not care about it but feels too much talk about it will not set a good example for any girl.

"I was acutely aware of some photos on the internet - my mum called me and was like, `Did you gain weight?` - everybody was telling me about it, and I didn`t really care," Stylist magazine quoted Gaga as saying.

"But when I heard it was on the news, where they talk about wars, the economy crashing and the election - I just thought, `This is f****** ridiculous.` I mean, what kind of example is that to a young girl sitting at home," she added.

The 26-year-old also praised Adele`s confidence, who besides being chubby has gained a lot of recognition because of her work, reports

"I thought, well I don`t really care if they think I`m fat, because, quite honestly, I did gain about 30 pounds. Adele is bigger than me, how come nobody says anything about it? She`s so wonderful and I think her confidence is something I have to match. She has set the bar very high for a lot of women," she said.
