Lady Gaga has started her new tour in Amsterdam, and it's already raising eyebrows -- not for a meat dress but rather for the star's apparent weight gain. Admitting she has put on 25 pounds, Gaga says she’s not concerned; she’s an Italian girl from New York who loves to eat.
“I’m dieting right now, because I gained, like, 25 pounds,” Gaga told radio host Elvis Duran when she called into his show just before she hit the road. “And you know 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.”
