Lady Gaga has been showing off a more curvaceous figure lately during her Born This Way tour.
And Lady Gaga has now said that there is a very simple explanation for her newly fuller figure – her father’s delicious food.
The 26-year-old singer’s dad Joe Germanotta owns a New York restaurant, and his superstar daughter says that after gaining 25lbs, she will be steering clear of the eatery.
Lady Gaga has been looking sexy since putting on some pounds but admits while she doesn’t feel “bad” about her new shape, she wants to be more conscious of what she is eating.
She told radio host Elvis Duran: “I love eating pasta and pizza. I’m a New York Italian girl. That’s why I have been staying out of New York. My father opened a restaurant. It’s so amazing.
“It’s so freaking delicious, but I’m telling you I gain five pounds every time I go in there. So my dad wants me to eat at the restaurant, and I’m, like, I’ve got to go where I can drink green juice.”
Lady Gaga added: “I really don’t feel bad about it, not even for a second. I have to be on such a strict diet constantly. It’s hard because it’s a quite vigorous show, so I tend to bulk up, get muscular, and I really don’t like that. So I’m trying to find a new balance.”
The star made headlines after she revealed her new look after taking to the stage on Tuesday night in Amsterdam.
Lady Gaga said she gained 25 lbs after nutritionist Majid Ali, who has not treated the singer, told RadarOnline: “Gaga appears to have gained at least 30 pounds.”
But it wasn’t Lady Gaga’s figure that was grabbing people’s attention as she took to the stage in the Dutch capital.
The singer was seen mid-show lighting a big joint of marijuana and inhaling it during a break.
Praising the “wondrous” drug, the singer told fans she had cut down on drinking alcohol because she prefers smoking the substance.
Lady Gaga was quoted as telling The Sun newspaper: “I want you to know it has totally changed my life and I’ve really cut down on drinking.
“It has been a totally spiritual experience for me with my music. It’s like saying everybody needs to take a breath and it’s going to be OK.”
Lady Gaga has been open about how hard she usually works to maintain her trim physique, and caused controversy earlier this year by revealing her diet habits.
Writing on her Twitter page, she said: “Just killed back to back spin classes. Eating a salad dreaming of a cheeseburger #PopSingersDontEat #IWasBornThisWay.”
However, Lady Gaga has previously talked about how she can’t resist hearty Italian food.
She said: “The rumors I am a dab hand in the kitchen are completely true.
“I come from an Italian family – what more can I say? I love to cook. I am really good at Italian food. So I make great meatballs, pasta and all sorts. I love it.”
