KEZK Listeners: Our contest line has changed! Missouri - (314) 531-1025 | Illinois - (618) 259-1025

Earlier this week Lady Gaga took to Twitter to speak out against countless reports of her having gained weight. 

It seems that her positive outlook sparked a huge conversation on her social media network On the site, Mother Monster thanked her fans for knowing “the meaning of real beauty & compassion” while attributing a quote from Marilyn Monroe.

Days later she took to Twitter once again to tweet a photo of herself with the message “Body Revolution 2013.” The caption alongside her photo read “Bulimia and anorexia since I was 15.”

An overpowering amount of support has come from her fans, one even writing that she too has been struggling through relapse of eating disorders.

“I’ve been relapsing a lot lately and all I do is cry about my body . . . looking at this is making me strong. You inspire me. If you can be strong, I can too. Thank you for helping me,” Ida wrote.

In a poll we posted this week asking if Lady Gaga should speak out about body image issues an overwhelmingly 84% of the votes said yes. It seems that Gaga took this idea in stride as she created a new Twitter account on Tuesday called A Body Revolution 2013, later writing “But today I join the BODY REVOLUTION.”

With the aim to inspire bravery, breed compassion and show others struggling with anorexia and bulimia that there is a way to overcome, Gaga is playing her part in helping others and herself with something she’s been fighting for so long.
