Uh oh - it seems that yet another megastar has run afoul of the Twitterverse.
Lady Gaga is taking some virtual heat over a tweet she sent to her 22 million followers on Tuesday that used a hashtag that said pop stars don't eat, and it's being translated by some as a promotion of unhealthy habits.
"Just killed back to back spin classes," Gaga posted. "Eating a salad dreaming of a cheeseburger #PopSingersDontEat #IWasBornThisWay."
Followers quickly let her have it.
"dear @ladygaga,” one wrote, according to E! News. “You just blatantly endorsed anorexia to over 22 million followers. how do you sleep at night?" Another said, "@ladygaga they don't eat but they should. #popsingersSHOULDeat."
Other readers suggested that fans no longer follow one of the most-followed celebrities on Twitter: "unfollow @ladygaga 4 her ignorant and stupid message to her fans #popsingersdonteat wow ur a role model act like 1 dont praise anorexia wtf?"
The National Eating Disorders Association also weighed in, writing, "Huh? This is the same person who recently implored girls to stop dieting?"
In February, Gaga spoke openly about her past struggle with an eating disorder when she was a guest at a young women's conference in Los Angeles, and she encouraged the teens present to call a cease fire on "the dieting wars."
Um...she didn't say that she wasn't eating, she said that she just worked out and that she is eating a smart meal but would rather a cheeseburger. Get off her back.
*rolls eyes* she was joking!!!!! sensitive people are just putting words in her mouth.
Some people obviously do not know how to handle a joke. She wasn't endorsing anorexia or anything of the sort. She was making a joke about dieting, nothing more, nothing less.
World needs to get a sense of humor!
Seriously, celebrities, like Gaga, will say anything if it puts them in the limelight. I seriously doubt most of what this woman says as I do with most celebrities who try and make themselves more like the "little people"!!!
Must be spring fever....why are people so horn* on this blog today.
Tip: visit California – we simply are the most gorgeous women in the United States! Women in California still believe in working out and refraining from chips and other fast food cra*....
Why does anyone ESPECIALLY "it" people need to update everyone else of their every move?
Well Gaga is simply verifying the fact that she does not eat.. Of course she doesnt, she looks like she is starving! She isnt the only one.. all of them do!
Spoken like a true fat person. Congrats on being fat you fatty mc fat fat.
She is nasty and no she was not born that way.
Lol. I guess I can say the same for sausage. Fine dining only when it comes to picking me out a good sausage! Lmao.

'Of' not 'if'. See what you done? Lmao
