Lady Gaga is opening up about her expanding waistline.

The pop star — whose recent weight gain even drew pregnancy speculation from the likes of Kelly Osbourne — admitted on Sirius Radio’s Elvis Duran show on Sept. 20 that she’s packed on a whopping 25 pounds.

“I really don’t feel bad about it, not even for a second,” she told Duran. “I have to be on such a strict diet constantly. 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.”

Why has she packed on weight?

“I’m a New York Italian girl. That’s why I have been staying out of New York,” she said. “My father [Joe Germanotta] 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. So my dad wants me to eat at the restaurant, and I’m, like, I’ve got to go where I can drink green juice.”

Now — amidst reports that her record company has demanded she slim down —the 26-year-old is on a diet to get rid of the excess weight. “I’m trying to find a new balance,” she said.

Gaga’s new curvy figure is a far cry from the singer’s usually pin-thin shape. And her recent Italian food indulgence is a far cry from her usually restricted diet and sweat-dripping workout regime. In April of this year, Gaga infamously tweeted, “Just killed back to back spin classes. Eating a salad and dreaming of a cheeseburger.” Fans were especially turned off when she added, “pop stars don’t eat.”

Now Celebuzz is looking back at Gaga’s extreme quotes about her body image, diet and weight. Peek through the gallery.
