Speaking with Stylist magazine, Gaga discusses the critical coverage surrounding her recent weight gain: “I was acutely aware of some photos on the internet — my mum called me and was like, “Did you gain weight?” — everybody was telling me about it, and I didn’t really care. But when I heard it was on the news, where they talk about wars, the economy crashing, and the election — I just thought, ‘This is fucking ridiculous.’ I mean, what kind of example is that to a young girl sitting at home? … Quite honestly, I did gain about 30 pounds. [But] Adele is bigger than me, how come nobody says anything about it? She’s so wonderful and I think her confidence is something I have to match. She has set the bar very high for a lot of women.”
