Lady Gaga Responds to Super Bowl Body-Shamers with Way More Class Than They Deserve #Goal

“Be you, and be relentlessly you. That’s the stuff of champions.”

The story begun this way…

I’ve been planning this since I was 4, so I know exactly what I’m going to do,” Gaga said in a behind the scenes video of the Super Bowl preparations.

For me, it’s all about giving to the fans and bringing people together that wouldn’t normally come together.

Gaga opened the show on the literal roof of the stadium, where she performed a combo of “God Bless America” and “This Land Is Your Land” before DIVING ONTO THE FIELD. From there, she performed an epic medley of her greatest hits, including “Poker Face,” “Born This Way,” “Telephone,” “Million Reasons,” and, of course, “Bad Romance.”

And she did it all in a sparkly unitard (and eventually some sparkly shoulder pads, because football). Yep, that’s our Gaga.

That’s not all, after her amazing and electrifying, politically charged Super Bowl performance, this is how some of us do repay her… By criticising her body. Guys!

But with grace and much more forgiveness than those who found fault with her out-of-Versace bodysuit figure deserve, Joanne responded on Instagram.

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. No matter who you are or what you do. I could give you a million reasons why you don’t need to cater to anyone or anything to succeed. Be you, and be relentlessly you. That’s the stuff of champions. thank you so much everyone for supporting me. I love you guys. Xoxo, gaga
