Super Bowl LI might be officially over, but controversy surrounding the New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons showdown continues to make headlines. In addition to questioning whether or not the Pats rigged their win, many folks seem unable to stop talking about Lady Gaga's halftime performance -- for all the WRONG reasons. The fact that Lady Gaga had to respond to Super Bowl body shamers who poked fun at her "gut" is horrendous ... but we're so here for what she has to say.


The 30-year-old Grammy Award winner took to Instagram, where she addressed "concerns" over her now-infamous tummy that, apparently, mean-spirited and clueless people loved to make fun of during her halftime show at the Super Bowl on February 5.

And as you can see, Gaga is not fazed by any of it and hopes all of us can learn to love our bodies the way she loves hers.

"I heard my body is a topic of conversation so I wanted to say, I'm proud of my body and you should be proud of yours too," Gaga captions her Instagram post. She continues:

No matter who you are or what you do. I could give you a million reasons why you don't need to cater to anyone or anything to succeed. Be you, and be relentlessly you. That's the stuff of champions. thank you so much everyone for supporting me. I love you guys.

Xoxo, gaga

It took me a while to realize that Gaga's attack from trolls is actually a real thing. Aside from not wanting to speak on anyone's "gut" (you know, trying to put the good manners my parents taught me into practice?), I'm still trying to find said gut on Gaga.

... Because it's just not there.

Plus, did you see her pre-performance workout? Yeah, girl is in shape.
