Lady Gaga's recent weight gain shocked fans but the singer has admitted that while she has "put on 25 pounds" she doesn't care.
The singer, who is currently on the European leg of her 'Born This Way Ball tour, has spoken about recent tabloid claims that she's on a 'booze' diet and that she's simply enjoying food and not having to be on "such a strict diet constantly.''
"I'm dieting right now, because I gained like 25 pounds," Lady Gaga revealed to US radio host Elvis Duran.

"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," the 'Marry The Night' singer explained.
"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," she added.

Gaga said that she loves enjoying food, which steams from her Italian heritage in New York. "I love eating pasta and pizza," Gaga explained.
"I'm a New York Italian girl. My father 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."
