Not really. Wait. Yes, yes I do.
Still getting over Super Bowl LI here – maybe the best football game I’ve ever seen. And part of the experience was Lady Gaga’s knock-out halftime show. She killed it. She was the runner-up MVP to Brady. Well, maybe not, but she was great.
Then I heard some rumors on these interwebs about someone – and I have no idea how anyone could do this – someone was “body shaming” my beloved Gaga. I then learned that that means they made fun of her for being out of shape…
I was out of shape myself for a decade or more. I know a thing or two about it. I know how hard it is to come back and to keep it up. Fitness is a big part of what I write about here. Nothing makes me happier than seeing someone lose the weight and hit the gym, etc. Anyway, I then returned my thoughts to Lady Gaga and her appearance last Sunday.
How the hell is this out of shape?
Billboard / Fox / NFL / Gaga.
I look at that and see …. talented, beauty! Trying not to be a pig here. Sorry. Love her. She’s the total package: great voice, energetic, plays her own instruments, upbeat pop, etc., etc. Strictly speaking to her physical appearance, I’m thinking “dream girl”.
Some dork named “Nanath” noted her “flab”. I don’t see that (revert to the above pic for reference) but I can see “Nathan” being a fat loser. “Jake” says she has a “gut”. Any bets “Jake” has never kissed a girl? Somebody “AppleCore” says she has a “flabby belly”… That fruit is rotten to the core. There’s probably no teeth to knock out. Certainly no couth.
But she doesn’t need me to defend her. The classy little lady strode right past her pitiful detractors:
“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,” she wrote on Instagram in the caption of a photo of her performing. “No matter who you are or what you do.”
Instantly turned these idiots into a positive message for everyone. Amazing.
It’s not often I side with the feminists. Even more amazing. But that’s the power of Gaga. No shame it that at all.
