After unflattering photographs of Lady Gaga hit the Internet this month, the 26-year-old admitted to gaining 25 pounds. Now she's telling her detractors to back off in a major way.

On Tuesday, Gaga posted four photographs of herself scantily clad in underwear that plainly showed her body on her website. She then admitted to having suffered from eating disorders as a teenager ("Bulimia and anorexia since I was 15") and encouraged others to share photographs and stories about their body image issues, in something that she is calling the "Body Revolution." The online forum can be found on her website, LittleMonsters.com.

"Hey Guys its Gaga… Now that the body revolution has begun, be brave and post a photo of you that celebrates your triumph over insecurities," she wrote.

"My mother and I created the Born This Way Foundation for one reason: 'to inspire bravery.' This profile is an extension of that dream. »
