Has Lady Gaga’s label ordered her to lose the ’25 pounds’ she recently gained?

These are some photos of Lady Gaga in Paris yesterday, ahead of her Paris concert. I want to put WENN’s caption for these photos in this post verbatim: “Lady Gaga is mobbed by photographers and fans as she leaves her Paris hotel in an oversized outfit, ahead of her concert. Due to the garment’s size, Gaga’s assistants had to pull her into the vehicle waiting for her, as she couldn’t get in on her own.” Sure. “Due to the GARMENT’S size.” LOL.

On Friday, we debated Lady Gaga’s weight gain when she claimed that she put on “like, 25 pounds”. I still don’t think she’s gained that much, but whatever happened, I think she still looks fine, and I think she handled the “fat” criticism surprisingly well. I think this outfit might be Gaga’s sight-gag, right? Like, “You think I’m fat? Look at me in THIS outfit.” Unfortunately for all of us, people are determined to make Gaga feel like crap about her weight gain. Radar reports that Gaga’s label “ordered” her to lose weight:

Lady Gaga is now literally too big for her boots! The Born This Way singer has been told by her record label to lose weight after they were forced to order better-fitting outfits for the remainder of her world tour, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

Executives at the Universal Music Group saw recent pictures of the 26-year-old singer bulging out of her corset and suspenders and had to gently tell their star they were ordering a new wardrobe for the Born This Way Ball. She was also asked to lay off her favorite foods – pizza and pasta!

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, the Italian food junkie admitted in an interview Wednesday that she has gained 25 pounds recently, explaining: “I love eating!”

“The tight, skimpy outfits weren’t doing anything for Gaga’s new fuller figure, so Universal ordered more flattering and better fitting costumes for the rest of the tour,” a source revealed.

“No one likes to criticize someone who has put on weight, but she has been showing some serious muffin top, especially when wearing tight suspenders. It just wasn’t a good look and was getting unnecessary criticism, so they moved fast to nip it in the bud. Gaga has an incredible appetite for Italian food, which stems largely from her roots. It’s very easy on tour to get hooked on a diet of pizza and pasta because they are comfort foods – and when you are away from home you always long for something that reminds you of where you came from.

“She loves to eat, but because of her tiny frame it shows if she doesn’t work out as much as normal. Executives told her to quit gorging on her favorite foods. But despite the weight gain, Gaga won’t give up wearing the meat dress that has become a focal part of the live show. Gaga would rather starve to death than lose that dress,” the source divulged.

Gaga has always been open about her hard parting habits, having once claimed she follows “the drunk diet… I live my life as I want to.” She recently told radio station Sirius FM. “I like to drink whiskey and stuff while I am working,” admitting that she regularly works out when she is hung over.

Gaga’s liquid appetite is most likely to blame for her recent weight gain, explained nutritionist Majid Ali. “Alcohol sugars can only be stored as fats. Whereas most sugars can be used as fuel and whatever is left over is stored,” he revealed.

“So all that drinking adds up as fat pretty quickly, no matter what the rest of her diet is like.”

God, that’s when I gained weight in my early 20s – when I began to drink too much. And since I stopped drinking (for the most part) a few years ago, the pounds have come off. If Gaga gained weight because of drinking, then perhaps it’s not a “She needs to go on a diet” thing and more of a “Put down the White Russian, Gaga” thing. She can still eat pizza – but don’t let her drink 3 beers while she’s eating the pizza. Now, as for her label “ordering” her onto a diet… I hope Gaga told them to kiss her fat ass, you know? I don’t care if the label had to order new costumes. They don’t get to dictate to Gaga or ANY artist what weight the artist should be.

PS… Did anyone else look at these photos and think about The Silence of the Lambs? Just me?

    I seriously cannot with her. She’s like a cartoon to me and not a real person, so to think about her struggling with weight gain or loss is kind of a disconnect.

  2. valleymiss says:

    Leave Gaga alone! Lol

    Srsly, Kaiser’s probably right…it’s probably more due to alcohol than food. Not saying she’s an alcoholic, but merely saying that there comes a point in your 20s when you can’t drink/eat the way you used to…your metabolism changes, and suddenly the weight creeps on.

  3. cimorene says:

    That outfit reminds me of Patrick from Spongebob Squarepants.

  4. girlnbayou says:

    Huh?? Silence of the lambs?.. I dont get it.

  5. katie says:

    silence of the lambs bc of her glasses, and the scene with buffalo bob and the night vision glasses in his basement.

    she looks like a giant sandwich cutout.

  6. Ellie66 says:

    Maybe she gave up the coke. I don’t like her and for some strange reason it makes me happy she gained weight (petty, I know). Her lips look like they gained a pound or two.

  7. the original bellaluna says:

    I don’t even like her, and I hope she told her label to kiss her ass!

    And I’m certain that outfit is a sight-gag. A silent way of saying “Yeah, I hear what you’re saying, and f*ck you.”

    • Kimbob says:

      Yeah, that outfit is a big finger to everyone (critics of her weight), as I see it.

      I think Kaiser’s right she should dial back on the ETOH consumption…that’s probably what’s putting the pounds on.

      It doesn’t look as if she’s gained 25 lbs., but I think she looks good w/a little extra weight. She doesn’t look fat to me…but it’s kinda hard to tell in the spongebob get-up, though.

    • Darth says:

      Doubtful that she stood up to her label. After all, she obeyed their “orders” to dye her hair blonde and make dance music. According to her early producers she threw an emotional fit and wept when they told her about the persona they had planned for her. Her own wish was to be a flowery, singer-songwriter type “like Vanessa Carlton” (her own words). Don’t believe me, go look on YouTube for her early bar gigs. That’s why overnight she went from a plain Jane to an avant garde “monster”.
      This girl will lose the weight as instructed. She will do whatever keeps the checks coming in.

  8. Cathy says:

    Well, that outfit is different.

  9. crys737 says:

    Shes wearing a glorfied snuggie. And as for the weight gain I dont see it.

  10. Bella says:

    She is fat. Christina is fat. They both should hit the gym and start eat salads. I don’t like fat celebs. I can’t help it. I wanna this picture perfect. I don’t care that they are “just humans” they must always look great. That’s big part of their job. Stop looking for excuses. Don’t like it – change profession.

  11. The Original Mia says:

    Don’t like her & think the weight gain is her way of drawing attention to herself as usual. Find it funny no one is calling out her drinking & drugging. If this was someone else, people would be calling her a drunken mess & that her weight gain alcohol bloat.

    • Bella says:

      Exactly. This site always write about Christina Aguilera – drunk monster with bloated face. So why nobody calls Gaga in this way. Let’s be fair.

      • Jayna says:

        Exactly. She is on tour. You have to be in your best shape as a pop star for the skimpy outfits and just for energy dancing. Her shows are a lot of skimpy outfits and dancing, like Beyonce. Most pop stars can’t keep the weight on as the long tour progresses because it’s so aerobic. She tweets about smoking pot all day, drunk, and obviously she is eating lots of food to gain that much weight during the tour. Christina wasn’t on tour, but fora few performances poured herself in skimpy outfits last year performing and she was called a sloppy drunk mess on here.

  12. Jmabbers says:

    Can’t imagine her being oblivious. She’s in the spotlight, full front and center…AGAIN. IMO, she knew exactly what she was doing.

  13. tru tru says:

    that outfit is hilarious!!

    she is not far, she’ll get it together, when she feels like it.

  14. Riana says:

    She just isn’t carrying the weight well.

    I’ve seen several pics of her and in all of them…it seems like she’s stuffed into her outfits rather than wearing them comfortably…and I don’t mean the meat dresses and concert wear.’

    I’m not sure what the story is for her weight gain, whatever it is with her choreography, style of clothes and general message it just doesn’t vibe with her new weight. Not to mention I always recall her fans are usually the most vocal and jubilant in calling Christina and Adele fat.

    I think if Gaga was an actual singer and musician, her weight wouldn’t matter, but she made herself into a physical spectacle with her body being the main draw. Puts her in quite the awkward position now.

  15. Eleonor says:

    I don’t like her, I think it’s a Madonna and Grace Jones copycat, but If I was her I’d tell to my label go to f*** themselves, with all the money they’re doing thanks to her fat ass.

  16. Jayna says:

    I call bull. A label doesn’t just order more flattering outfits and inform the star. Gaga spends lots of time with her fashion designers in her Haus of Gaga on her costumes. She is hands on. The label doesn’t pick her outfits and order. Lol

  17. MizzVJJ says:

    No sympathy for the mind-controlled robot.

  18. bns says:

    That outfit is hilarious – best thing she’s done in months, and her hair looks cute here.

  19. Ranunculus says:

    Can she just go away, please!

  20. KC says:

    Say something nice: I like her hair color, it really suits her. I also like that she got rid of the extentions.

  21. pepi says:

    I¨m loving that dress so much!!

  22. Littlestar says:

    I like Gaga and all, but I’m really tired of her get ups already. I know she’s trying to be shocking and original but it’s just boring already. She should start dressing “normal” and really shock us all. I think she’s physically gorgeous. She’d look great in jeans and a tee! And get rid of those hideous platforms too! :)

  23. Oi says:

    I have to disagree with you here, Kaiser. If this is true (have doubts about that) I think its only fair that because she signed up for it, then she is obligated to fit into her costumes. Why should her label have to buy her a whole new expensive wardrobe because she can’t eat salad instead of pizza? I’m not saying she should starve or be unhealthy about it; she should just go back to her previous weight. She is a professional who is on tour and fitting into her costumes is part of the job. She can eat what she wants when she’s at home.

    I don’t think this falls under the header of fat-shaming. If you want to be a super model, you have to be skinny. if you want to be a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader, you can’t hang over your uniform. If you can’t hack it or don’t want to, quit. You signed up, you got the job its on you now to keep it they way it was agreed. There’s no deception about these kinds of stipulations in those kinds of jobs. These are not “real world” jobs. Appearance is part of the contract.

    • lw says:

      I totally agree. And frankly, if Gaga has a butt ugly face, contrived and uninspired music, AND chubs it up, why am I supposed to care about her as a pop star? You can’t have it both ways. If the music sucks (as I believe it generally does), then you better at least be hot to look at. She signed on to be a pop star, right? Not a musical genius. A pop star.

    • Lm says:

      I fully agree. She can only blame herself.

      Xtina and Adele can pack on the pounds since they’re all about their voice but Gaga feel the need to dance while singing so she needs to be fit.

      She’s getting SO much money while touring. How hard can it be to hit the gym and give the audience a REAL show with energy?

    • TrustMeOnThis says:

      Damn, you bitches is harsh! I don’t especially like her music but where do you get off?

    • Annie says:

      I’m sorry but I totally agree with those “harsh” comments! Women here are probably sensitive about this because they have bodies that look similar to or larger than Gaga’s. However this is like comparing apples and oranges – Gaga is a pop tartlet and pop tarts do NOT get paid for looking like the typical woman. She either needs to cover the hell up and focus more on her voice or songwriting (and has Gaga ever given us anything more than disposable pop whose catchiness can be credited to the producer rather than Gaga’s songwriting ability?) like Xtina and Adele or if she wants a career more like Madonna or Gwen Stefani she needs to shape the hell up and get her Telephone body back pronto. Heck, Britney manages to keep her body looking better than Gaga’s despite all her psycological probs and the meds she has to take.

    The bodyguard on the right in the top pic is awfully handsome.

  25. Dimebox says:

    Yes, if she wants to dress like she usually does in concerts then she needs to work out/diet. But whenever I see her, one of the things I always wonder about is the nightmare amount of luggage she has to travel with, and I feel sorry for whoever is in charge of it. I don’t mean just her concert gear, she never sets foot out of a hotel without some wild outfit, ball gowns, flower wreaths on her face, all those ankle breaking shoes. Her entire life is one long costume change. Sounds exhausting to me.

  26. divax says:

    @Birdie: I also thought it was the angel in the cage scene!

  27. Hazel says:

    Hello sexy body guard on the right. You can guard my body anyday. First time ever im jelly of lady caca

  28. dcypher1 says:

    That outfit is too ridiculous. It looks like she cant even walk in it.. Her crazy outfits are impracticle and uncomfirtable. I think its stoopid.

  29. HeartStation says:

    Oh bye… I don’t feel sorry for her at all, no way would a label tell one of their biggest artists to lose weight when they weren’t even fat and does the label even pay for tour costumes? I don’t think so.. tours are usually handled between a company like live nation and the artist not the record label.

    She hasn’t even had any major criticism, I hadn’t even heard the comments until she brought it up herself playing the victim as usual, You think these minor comments were bad for Gaga but it was ok last year when everyone had basically started a witch hunt against Christina Aguilera and still make way worse comments about her weight, but that’s ok right…

  30. dcypher1 says:

    Caca looks like an italian sausage stuffed into her costumes though. They look really small on her now.

  31. Ol'Miss says:

    haha…silence of the lambs! In the name of fashion… LOL!

  32. TheOneAndOnlyOnly says:

    Agree bettyrose, DHL and lw, now if only her label ordered her to make, if she can which I doubt, better music; thank God for youtube, all the great live stuff from the 60s/70s is on it, my son turned me on to the Beuna Vista Social club and Ry Cooder, that’s music, check it out never heard of them, way better than this manufactured narcissist.

  33. Jill says:

    It’s a felt disaster!!

    Her antics are getting old.

  34. Swan Jaco says:

    Remember that she was born that way. Seriously though, the GaGa star is already fading, reality TV here she comes.

  35. Annie says:

    I still don’t believe she’s suddenly gained 25lb, she’s been gradually gaining for a couple of years now. I reckon she’s gained around 25-30lb since the Paparrazi-Telephone time, but she hasn’t gained it overnight.

  36. ramona says:

    I’m sick of her dressing up like an idiot. If she’s really as talented as she likes to tell us, make a killer record and dress like a human. Don’t hide behind all that schmutz.
