Lady Gaga’s performance at the recent Super Bowl earned her worldwide praise, yet her figure gained her some harsh criticism.

The pop superstar wowed viewers when she delivered a high-flying performance in Houston, Texas, but critics were quick to point out the slightly-unflattering appearance of Gaga's stomach as she danced in a white crop top and silver hot pants, accusing her of having a 'pot belly' and making fun of her 'rolls'. 

While Gaga’s army of fans, known as her ‘monsters’, were quick to defend the singer and her body, the 30-year-old has also hit back at the body-shaming controversy. In an Instagram post, she wrote: "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." Gaga also admitted that she was driven to respond to the criticism as a way of showing her fans that’s it’s vital to rise above the negativity of cyber bullies.

However, it seems that it wasn’t just keyboard warriors who took a swipe at Gaga’s physique. One half of Dolce & Gabbana design duo, Stefano Gabbana, took to Instagram to admit that he, along with many others, too judged Gaga’s body. However, in a post along with a close-up of Gaga’s stomach, he revealed that he came to the conclusion after some thought that he likes the star’s “real” body. He wrote: “I know it's strange, but finally something real and not retouched! The truth, reality. Yesterday I criticised it too, but I thought about it and I was wrong!” Gaga has been spotted in Dolce & Gabbana designs numerous times in the past, making Stefano’s comments all the more poignant.

Nonetheless, Gaga rocked up to the Grammy Awards in tiny leather shorts and a bralet, oozing more confidence than ever.
