Lady Gaga Sparks Controversy with “Pop Singers Don’t Eat” Tweet
Lady Gaga is no stranger to controversy and she recently came under fire after she suggested that “pop singers don’t eat” in a tweet to her 22 million plus followers.
After coming out of the gym last week, she tweeted:
“Just killed back to back spin classes. Eating a salad dreaming of a cheeseburger #PopSingersDontEat #IWasBornThisWay”
Within seconds, criticism from Gaga’s followers started rolling in, accusing her of encouraging eating disorders.
One concerned fan tweeted, “@ladygaga I’m stunned that you would promote such an unhealthy attitude towards food to your fans when you claim to be so righteous.,” while another fan tweeted, “Seriously what is Lady Gaga playing at? In her last tweet she put #PopSingersDontEat. Great role model she is…”
Mother Monster has yet to respond to her 22.6 million followers on the social networking site, and the tweet remains on her account as of the day this story was published.
