Los Angeles: Singer-actress Lady Gaga has responded to her body shamers, saying she is proud of her body.
The "Born this way" hitmaker took to Instagram on Tuesday night to address the negative commentary regarding her appearance during her Super Bowl LI halftime performance on February 5, reports people.com.
"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 wrote with a photo of herself from the show.
"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," she added.
"Be you, and be relentlessly you. That's the stuff of champions. Thank you so much everyone for supporting me. I love you guys."
The 30-year-old has also announced her Joanne World Tour, with plans to kick it off in August in Vancouver before wrapping it up on December 14 in Salt Lake City.
A fellow artiste also backed Gaga up after criticism from fans who believed she took her high-flying stunts from singer Pink.
