Lady Gaga’s Body Revolution” Campaign”
Lady Gaga has been an influential artist since arriving on the music scene, however her influence stretches far beyond her musical ability.
Gaga is a strong activist for equality: she exercised her celebrity status to help eliminate Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, and has remained a symbol for sexual equality. She is now moving towards a new battle: body image.
The singer has faced excessive media scrutiny over the past few weeks due to her apparent weight gain. The usually svelte artist appeared heavier during a performance, and the photos have flooded the internet along with criticisms about her body. Gaga is fighting back with the launch of her Body Revolution 2013 campaign which encourages everyone to celebrate their “flaws” by submittingreal photos and stories to the Body Revolution section of her website. Gaga has even posted revealing photos of herself with the alarming caption, “bulimia and anorexia since I was 15”.
Lady Gaga is on a mission to promote compassion, acceptance, health and happiness instead of focusing on society’s template for a “perfect” body.
