Lady Gaga is not ignoring the comments and criticisms of her recent weight gain, and has posted several photos in response to all the publicity she's receiving.

She addressed the issue in an interview with radio host Elvis Duran, pointing out that she had packed on the pounds thanks to her Dad's delicious, yet carb-heavy Italian eats. While Gaga appeared curvier in her onstage outfits, we wouldn't call her "fat."

But she's been reading the press and comments of those who are saying she is just that and posted a photo of herself in lemon yellow lingerie, showing off her beautiful body. Gaga is standing barefoot with her arms at her side and her eyes closed. She captioned the photo: "Bulimia and anorexia since I was 15."

It's a heartbreaking image, especially since she looks so sad, thanks to her expression. It's almost as though she is wincing while having this photo taken, as if it pains her to have to do it, given the emotional scars that go along with her eating disorder. Gaga also posted several other photos: one showing her left side filled with tattoos; another focusing in on her sexy curves and derriere!

The photos also coincide with the launch of a sub-section of her site, aptly titled Body Revolution, with the following statement: "My mother and I created the BORN THIS WAY FOUNDATION for one reason: 'to inspire bravery.' This profile is an extension of that dream. Be brave and celebrate with us your 'perceived flaws,' as society tells us. May we make our flaws famous, and thus redefine the heinous."

It's a sad notion that a woman of her size can be described as fat. Gaga's a healthy, curvy woman with hardly any fat on her. It's a brave image to share with her little monsters and the world, since she bares all – most importantly, her soul.

There were rumors that she was pregnant and that her label told her to lose weight, as well.

We said it before and we'll say it again. Extra pounds or not, Gaga looks gorgeous. Rejoice and love yourself today, just as Gaga did!
