Lady Gaga Was Bullied for Being Fat

lady-gaga-fat1 - Lady Gaga Was Bullied for Being Fat

Lady Gaga joins the “Celebrities Who Were Bullied” Club – from the Daily Mail:

‘School bullies called me fat and laughed at my appearance.’

The 24-year-old singer admits she struggled to fit in at an all-girls private school in New York, and was frequently made fun of over her appearance.

She said: ‘I had a very big nose, very curly brown hair and I was overweight. I got made fun of.’

But while the comments undoubtedly upset Gaga, she admits it was her work and her musical talent that helped her cope.

And look at her now! She had her revenge. She is the best she can be! Good for her! Her body has a fantastic shape.

as a PhD student who studies victimization among early adolescents I can tell you that there is very little proof that kids get bullied BECAUSE of their physical attributes. The superficial qualities may provide “material” for the bullies, but they are very rarely the cause of the actual victimization. It is very often personality characteristics that contribute to one’s likelihood of being a victim, like shyness or being quirky….The only reason I say that is because Lady Gaga was never fat, and her saying that minimizes real weight problems that other girlshave.

From a personal point of view i agree, i got bullied a bit at one point, and it was mostly bc i wasn’t friends with the louder girls at our school, and they only ever insulted me about my appearance, not my persona, even though i didn’t really have any particular things about my looks that would stand out. And like her big nose, i don’t think there’s anything ugly about that.. But she’s in a good place now, yay for that.

I was about to write that I doubt it was because of her weight.
Still, it is hard and will cause a bleaker outlook on oneself, i.e. starting to hate what others hate and wishing it was not there when the issues run much deeper.

Casey

Agree. Gaga is definetly “quirky” so I’m willing to bet that’s what prompted the bullying, more so than her weight or the shape of her nose.

That’s not entirely true. I always had a lot of friends, I wasn’t shy or had other personality issues that made people make fun of me. I was a bit overweight, nothing much, but it seemed a lot next to my “oh-so-tiny-and-popular” friends so I was a bit bullied by other kids that didn’t know me. I was friends with the pretty girls, but I was never a pretty girl and people made fun of me. As I had a strong personality since I was little, I never cared that much or got into crazy diets to make it stop.… Read more »

@ mia: I do believe that lady gaga was fat! as you can see in this link: https://www.skinnyvscurvy.com/lady-gaga/lady-gagas-scandalous-see-through-outfit.html She has stretch marks on her b~~~~!! usually u get them after losing a hell-lot of weight (like me) And THERE WAS this girl who used to make fun of me 4 being fat, and I used to (fight back) make fun of her huge nose!! And people DO bully others for being fat! my sister (last year when she was in the 4th grade) was bullied a lot cuz she’s chubby! the girls used to leve notes on her desk calling… Read more »

u dont get stretchmarks from loosing weight, but from STRETCHING skin in a short period of time due to growth. which means lady gaga’s breasts grew quickly at some point of her life – possibly puberty, not necessarily weight gain.

THANKYOU MIA! i understand that superficial qualities are easier to hone in on and tease someone about. But i am so sick of beautiful grown women going ‘oh, i was never one of the gorgeous popular girls at school’. At my school the popular girls were not the prettiest! They were generally the loudest, most likely to work in ‘packs’ and would change their behaviour to suit their peers whether it was for the good or bad (being nice or mean to other girls). There were the quiet ones that got picked on and they were just as physically beautiful… Read more »

And now she’s a skinny blonde posing in underwear and singing more or less naked all the time. I guess not only her “musical talent” helped her to cope with the comments.

I will probably never like her face — but that doesn’t matter, because she’s got a really enviable body!

Minnie

I actually am the opposite of most people.

I think that she has an enviable face and a meh body. I like her face, but it does get sort of lost in all of the…I’m going to say glitz. There’s nothing wrong with her body, though. Like other, I doubt she was ever fat. I was bullied for being fat by kids that I was thinner than.

I was always heavy. I was “quirky” as well, but it was a result of the bullying. Even in kindergarten kids were mean to me for being heavy. When people are mean to you for a reason like that, you withdraw. I don’t think there is a heavy kid in this country (I mean heavy heavy) who isn’t/ wasn’t bullied. You can’t claim every heavy child has some personality defect that makes them a target and it has nothing to do with kids being cruel.

Sidney
Guest
Sidney

I don’t think anyone is saying that, of course you can be bullied just for your appearance too. And when it comes to personality, i don’t think you need to have a defect, all that is needed is to be different from the ones bullying you.

You can’t claim every heavy child gets bullied. In my middle school the most popular guy in our grade was chubby and he had braces. Nobody made fun of him, he had a cool personality and was hilarious. I, on the other hand, heard plenty of fat jokes throughout high school.

now true, I was a heavy kid(176 lbs @ 5 ft 6 in), but i was never teased, possibly because i hang out with the popular girls…

its funny how many celebs got bullied. jess simpson was called a lesbian and her house was spray painted. chad michael murray had his nose broken by bullies. megan fox hid in bathrooms during lunch because girls threw things at her. its crazy how when you are the loser in school none will think you will get anywhere, they think its the popular kids that could get famous, but history has proven otherwise 🙂 its nice to see the bullied kids get the last laugh. most of people who get bullied really do not deserve it. i got bullied for… Read more »

Your right how more of the ‘bullied’ stars (or outcasts, underdogs.. etc…) become famous in the end. I don’t know if its because they have been hurt badly and want to be accepted badly by others, or want to prove themselves, but I know someone who gets bullied often (we go to seperate schools) and all she wants to do is become famous.

sola

yea either way i think it comes down to proving themselves. its really sad and scary

I’m absolutely elated about her success which in my opinion is the best revenge and a big a– middle finger to the kids who bullied her. Also in my opinion I feel like bullies having being bullied for the better part of my life I am now in college is a happy medium (I know its an oxymoron) of classmates or kids not taking a liking to your personality for some reason which in turn is a catalyst or fans the fire for them to start making fun of your personal appearance. I know for me I’ve always been kind… Read more »

I can relate to that,people are mean,especially the boys ,when you gain a little weight in high school.But know Im back to my natural weight.I think she is kinda ugly anyway no matter her weight.I dont thin she is a great singer just a good marketing product.

I believe her, Its the classic hollywood story go from a nobody to somebody. Gaga is definatey unique and I’m sure @ the time her peers weren’t as receptive as we are her consumers are now. Just because she puts the ‘pop ‘in popular now and is famous, doesn’t mean
she didn’t go throught hardships. It s amaing what the bussiness can do, especailly fads in pop culture. Life is sweet when your “hollywoodized”.

alot of people are saying they doubt she was fat. are there pictures of teenage gaga on the internets somewhere? how do guys know what she looked like?

second, you don’t need to be medically overweight to feel fat. all you need is a bunch of mean girls in your ear and you may start to believe the hate their spewing at you.

indeed. she was never fat.
why does it seem so fashionable for celebs to state they have been bullied at school? selective memory (everybody caught a mean remark at some point i guess)? wrong modesty? ugly duckling to swan – fantasies?
get over it gaga, u are famous now. no need to design ur childhood in retrospective.

you know. i actually think she looked prettier in high school. i think the hair softened her features a bit and the extra weight (NOT FAT! STILL SLIM!) softened her too

I’ve seen photos of gaga as a teen but she wans’t fat. I’m guessing they were post fatness.

Personally, I think half the celebrities claiming to be bullied weren’t. They’re applauded for being bullied and coming out of it stronger yet hardly any celebrities would turn around and say “ye I was the most popular girl in my school and bullied anyone I didn’t like” (I’m not saying being popular=being a bully but these celebs claiming to be bullied also throw in being different to the mix).

I’m sorry, but “HAD” a big nose? Try “have”. I think she should embrace that big nose! There’s is absolutely nothing wrong with having a big nose.

Well, I’m glad she did not make herself into something totally different to what she thinks she was bullied for and stayed true t- oh, wait… never mind! 😛

I was a chubby, shy, weird girl at school but I was never bullied. Sure, some people tried to say things to hurt me but it never worked, so they stopped. Most ‘famous’ people who talk about how ‘geeky’ and unpopular at school never were… Most people shy away from admitting they were part of the trendy group at school, it’s just not very cool or interesting.
