The Internet Strikes Back At Trolls Body Shaming Lady Gaga’s Super Bowl ‘Belly’
Her fans were having none of it.
The Super Bowl was incredible for so many reasons this year. The game itself was one of the greatest comebacks in the history of football, the commercials had us laughing and crying, and Lady Gaga’s unbelievable half-time performance just about stole the show.
(In case you somehow missed the half-time show, or you just want to relive it one more time, you can watch the full half-time video below!)
From flying down from the top of the stadium, swinging on ropes, extensive dancing and still managing to sound great, the performance was without a doubt captivating! Not to mention that this was all done in high-heeled stiletto boots.
For her final song, “Bad Romance,” Lady Gaga took to the stage in a crop top and shorts, looking fit and healthy. Yet, somehow, body-shamers are making her “belly” the center of attention. Not her performance, or her vocals, but her “belly.”
Trolls took to Twitter calling her stomach a “flat tire of fat.”
I couldn't stop looking at the little flat tire of fat that Lady Gaga had hanging over her waistband and if you say otherwise, you're a liar

Another Twitter user chimed in saying it’s the Super Bowl not the “Super Roll.”
Lady Gaga had a little gut in her. It's the Super Bowl not the Super Roll

And another referred to her stomach as “flab swinging around.”

Thankfully, Lady Gaga’s fan base, her “Little Monsters,” were quick to come to her rescue!
Lady Gaga and I have the same stomach and I've never felt more inspired/confident #gaga

Lady Gaga jumped off a roof last night and i saw an article that said her "fat roll was a little distracting" Really? That's all you got?

And we wonder why girls suffer body image problems, comments on Lady Gaga's body are a problem with YOU not her, normal comes in all shapes

Not only is Lady Gaga inspiring people across the country, but she’s in unbelievable shape, people! The endurance and cardio required to put on a show like that is ridiculously difficult. Before the performance, Gaga shared her journey to the Super Bowl including her workout prep.
