Lady Gaga put on some noticeable weight recently, roughly 25 pounds according to the singer herself, and now she admits the reason why: her dad's pizza and pasta.
"I love eating pasta and pizza," Gaga told radio host Elvis Duran. "I'm a New York Italian girl. That's why I have been staying out of New York. 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. My dad wants me to eat at the restaurant, and I'm, like, I've got to go where I can drink green juice."

When Lady Gaga took the stage in Amsterdam for one of her concerts, fans noticed that the singer has put on some extra weight and with reports speculating that perhaps she's pregnant or on a "drunk diet," Gaga herself has come out to put the rumors to rest that yes, she has gained weight - but she does not mind it really.

"I'm dieting right now, because I gained, like, 25 pounds. And you know I really don't feel bad about it, not even for a second," Gaga said. "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. So I'm trying to find a new balance."
The singer received backlash in 2008 when she first rose to fame with a much tinnier frame. Audiences remember she barely dressed and showing some bone in the music video for "Bad Romance" and similarly in "Telephone."
