Lady Gaga says she's on a diet, gained 25 pounds
Lady Gaga, known for her outlandish outfits and racy wardrobe, talked to a syndicated morning radio show about her recent weight gain.
"I'm dieting right now, because I gained, like, 25 pounds," Gaga told radio host Elvis Duran on his show, according to Us Weekly magazine. "And you know I really don't feel bad about it, not even for a second. I have to be on such a strict diet constantly. It's hard because it's a quite vigorous show, so I tend to bulk up, get muscular, and I really don't like that. So I'm trying to find a new balance."
Gaga, 26, is currently on tour for her third studio album, "Born This Way." At a recent performance in Amsterdam, the singer turned heads when she sported a risque outfit and was noticeable heavier (Video below). She told the radio host that she blames her father Joe Germanotta's Italian restaurant.
"I love eating pasta and pizza," says Gaga. "I'm a New York Italian girl. That's why I have been staying out of New York. My father opened a restaurant. It's so amazing ... it's so freaking delicious, but I'm telling you I gain five pounds every time I go in there. So my dad wants me to eat at the restaurant, and I'm, like, I've got to go where I can drink green juice."
On September 17, the self-proclaimed "Devil of Pop" smoked weed on stage in Amsterdam, Holland during a stop on her Born This Way Ball tour.
The pop star sat at the front of the stage and asked the crowd if they were "having fun." She went to pull out a cigarette, but opted instead for a rolled marijuana joint which had been thrown on stage.
After lighting it and taking a few puffs, Gaga threw the joint into the crowd and joked, "For those of you who are wondering if I'm high right now, I am not. That is not nearly enough to get me high." Watch a video of the incident here.
Following her stop in Amsterdam, Lady Gaga went on to perform in Paris, Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, Italy, Southern France and Spain.
Earlier in the month, Gaga hosted a launch event for the release of her fragrance "Fame," which she described as "slutty," at New York's Guggenheim Museum on September 13.
Gaga also recently revealed the name of her upcoming album, which will be called "ARTPOP." No release date has been announced.
