Lady Gaga’s Super Bowl halftime show had people talking. The conversation went a lot of places, but Gaga has had enough of one topic in particular: her body. She took to Instagram on Tuesday night to let the world know what she thinks.
“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 wrote. “No matter who you are or what you do.”
Instead of hitting back at critics, Gaga’s message was for anyone else who has felt the pressure to live up to others’ expectations of success or standards of beauty. She wrote that being yourself is “the stuff of champions.”
