Lady Gaga Is Dieting After Gaining 25 Pounds

The Mother Monster says chowing down on her dad's Italian food caused her to pack on the pounds

Lady Gaga's outlandish costumes have always garnered attention, but lately she's been called out more for her weight than her colorful ensembles.

In an interview with radio host Elvis Duran, the "Born This Way" singer admitted that she's gotten curvier in the past few months, the Huffington Post reports.

"I'm dieting right now, because I gained, like, 25 pounds," Gaga told the radio show before she headed on tour. "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."

Although some critics have claimed that the Mother Monster's extra pounds are due to her alcohol consumption, she has an even more obvious answer.

"I love eating pasta and pizza," says Gaga. "I'm a New York Italian girl. That's why I have been staying out of New York. My father [Joe Germanotta] 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."

Blame it on papa's pasta!
