Lady Gaga's boyfriend prefers her to be curvier and the singer says she is 'happier than ever'.
The 'Born This Way' singer has recently gained 25lbs but says she's happier than ever with her body, especially because partner Taylor Kinney is a huge fan of her new fuller figure.
Writing on her blog, alongside pictures of herself in a bikini, she said: "My boyfriend prefers me curvier.
"When I eat and am healthy and not so worried about my looks. I'm happy. Happier then I've ever been. I am not going to go on a psycho-spree because of scrutiny. This is who I am. And I am proud at any size."
Gaga - who recently confessed to sufferer from eating disorders in the past - also thanked her fans for supporting her during her struggles and giving her the self-confidence she has always needed.
She wrote: "My weight/loss/gain since I was a child has tormented me. No amount of help has ever healed my pain about it. But you have."
The 'Paparazzi' hitmaker recently revealed the reason behind her weight increase was down to her father's restaurant in New York.
She said: "I love eating pasta and I'm a New York Italian girl. That's why I have been staying out of New York.
"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 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.' "
