Lady Gaga Explains Her Weight Gain

When performing in Amsterdam a few days ago, it became painfully apparent that Lady Gaga had added a bit of extra meat to her bones, and we’re not just talking about her outfit. Nope, the “Born This Way” singer seems to have been gorging on a few too many calories over the last few months, and it is beginning to show.

But she now seems to have offered up a very simple reason for her new curves; it’s all of her dad’s fault. Joe Germanotta, the 26-year-old singer’s father, owns a restaurant in New York, and it appears as if Lady Gaga has been spending a bit too much time there and has gained 25 pounds as a result of it.

Speaking to radio host Elvis Duran, Gaga added : “I love eating pasta and pizza. 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.”

Poor Gaga. She also revealed that she doesn’t feel bad for adding the extra weight but that she just needs to find the right balance so that she can still get muscular for her very demanding live show.

In Amsterdam, she also caused a stir by smoking marijuana on stage and then lauding the ‘wondrous’ drug, stating that she had stopped drinking as much and smoked more instead. Let’s hope that rumors she is pregnant are wide off the mark then.
