Hello! I am just having one of those mornings where everything makes me ill. I know it is pregnancy hormones but that doesn’t stop me from being irritable. I was listening to the radio this morning and they were talking about Lady Gaga during the half-time show. I get on Facebook and it’s the same thing. All people care about is the fact that Lady Gaga has a “gut”. Last I checked, 80% of the people bashing her for her weight are the ones who could never get up on stage and do what she does.
First of all, she doesn’t have a gut. There isn’t a single girl out there that doesn’t have a little extra skin right there when they bend over. Last I checked, Lady Gaga is not claiming to be a model or some extraordinarily fit person. She is a musician and performer and to bash her for a completely tone body is ridiculous.
Secondly, I may not agree with everything she has to say regarding her morals but I do know that we are not to judge others. “You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.” This is Matthew 7:5. This is just saying that before you find the time to judge someone else on their appearance you better make sure your body is in shape. I have never been a skinny mini by any means which is why I would never intentionally criticize someone for their weight. I have had a baby and I am pregnant again – I have zero room to talk when it comes to a little extra pudge here and there.
Lastly, Lady Gaga and any other artists KNOWS they are putting their selves up for scrutiny any time they perform. They are trying to show you their artistic ability and want to share their love and passion of music. They are not going up on stage so you can talk about their weight or whatever it is they are wearing. She has always been eccentric and a little on the fashion forward-ish side. With that being said, I hope she takes everyone’s comments with a grain of salt and know they are all just jealous and she is extremely talented and killed the show.
Here are some pictures of Lady Gaga slaying beauty.
Thanks and have a blissfully mindful day.
