Whether Lady Gaga made a political statement was one big topic of conversation following her Super Bowl performance. Another? How she looked. "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 on Instagram Tuesday, in response to commenters on Twitter and elsewhere who criticized the singer's supposed "stomach flab," Reuters reports. "I could give you a million reasons why you don't need to cater to anyone or anything to succeed," Gaga continued on Instagram before thanking fans for their support. (More Lady Gaga stories.)
