Lady Gaga is making good on her promise that gaining weight won’t get her down.
The Grammy-winning singer – who told Elvis Duran that she’s gained 25 pounds – stepped out in Paris Friday wearing a tight-fitting animal print ensemble that showed off quite an hourglass figure.
On Saturday, Gaga thanked “my fans who love me no matter what, and know the meaning of real beauty&compassion,” she Tweeted. She also shared a quote attributed to Marilyn Monroe: “To all the girls that think you’re ugly because you’re not a size 0, you’re the beautiful one. It’s society who’s ugly.”
