Lady Gaga is 'curvy and proud' because she was born that way

24 July 2014, 14:19

Los Angeles - Lady Gaga is "curvy and proud".

The 28-year-old singer - who is known for her bizarre outfits - insists she feels comfortable with her own body and gets satisfaction from flaunting it in front of people.

The blonde beauty posted a black and white photograph of her wearing nothing but a fur coat and matching heels on Instagram on Tuesday, which she accompanied with the caption, "Curvy and proud".

However, the Born This Way hitmaker hasn't always felt confident about her figure as she previously revealed she used to battle with an eating disorder.

She said at the time: "I have struggled with an eating disorder for over 10 years and I take that very seriously, I take the struggle of others very seriously."

Although, Gaga claimed earlier this year that she had overcome her troubles with food and is surrounding herself with positive people.

She said in February: "I am better with food. I don't have an eating disorder anymore. I'm also better at not letting people take advantage of me. Five years ago, when I spotted someone with a hidden agenda, I allowed them to stay around me... I speak up now. I realised that it's my own fault that people take advantage. I should be around people who cherish my talents, my health, my time ... I'm an artist. I deserve better than to be loyal to people who only believe in me because I make money."
