Lady Gaga has been very public about her apparent 25-pound weight gain, explaining, "I’m a New York Italian girl. That’s why I have been staying out of New York. My father [Joe Germanotta] 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." So she's wore an oversized dress/schmatta in Paris yesterday that seemed like it could cover at least two more Gagas.
Gaga's record label, Universal Music Group, supposedly wants her to stop eating pizza and pasta and wants her to pick clothes that wont'look tight. The singer has previously mentioned that she had an eating disorder, "I used to throw up all the time in high school. So I'm not that confident. I wanted to be a skinny little balleria, but I was a voluptuous little Italian girl whose dad had meatballs on the table every night."

But yesterday she Tweeted, "And thank to my fans who love me no matter what, and know the meaning of real beauty&compassion. I really love you," with a link to an image of Marilyn Monroe and Monroe's quote, "To all the girls that think you’re fat because you’re not a size zero, you’re the beautiful one, its society who’s ugly."
