Executives at the Universal Music Group took notice of Lady Gaga's larger physique and weren't too pleased.

The record label reportedly told Gaga she needs to drop the extra pounds and ordered her new, better-fitting wardrobe for the remainder of the "Born This Way Ball."

According to a RadarOnline source, "The tight, skimpy outfits weren't doing anything for Gaga's new fuller figure, so Universal ordered more flattering and better fitting costumes for the rest of the tour."

She was also asked to stay away from her favorite foods: pizza and pasta.

The RadarOnline source said, the outfits are more bothersome than the weight gain.

"No one likes to criticize someone who has put on weight, but she has been showing some serious muffin top, especially when wearing tight suspenders. It just wasn't a good look and was getting unnecessary criticism, so they moved fast to nip it in the bud."

Although Gaga is not as svelte as usual, she will continue to wear her meat dress.

"But despite the weight gain, Gaga won't give up wearing the meat dress that has become a focal part of the live show. Gaga would rather starve to death than lose that dress."

The pop star admitted to gaining 25 pounds because her dad's restaurant is so darn good, and as a "New York Italian girl" she just can't help herself.

"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."

Unfortunately for the singer, her petite frame puts her at a disadvantage, the RadarOnline source said.

"She loves to eat, but because of her tiny frame it shows if she doesn't work out as much as normal. Executives told her to quit gorging on her favorite foods."

But don't expect Gaga to starve herself; she truly doesn't mind the extra weight.

"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."

In April, she tweeted, "Just killed back to back spin classes. Eating a salad dreaming of a cheeseburger #PopSingersDontEat#IWasBornThisWay"

According to New York Post's Page Six, Gaga admitted to struggling with bulimia during her teenage years in February.

"I used to throw up all the time in high school. So I'm not that confident," Gaga said. "I wanted to be a skinny little ballerina but I was a voluptuous little Italian girl whose dad had meatballs on the table every night. I used to come home and say, 'Dad, why do you always give us this food? I need to be thin.'"

She also admitted she is not immune to body image issues.

"Weight is still a struggle," she said. "Every video I'm in, every magazine cover, they stretch you -- they make you perfect. It's not real life."
