Lady Gaga's tweet has sparked controversy on Twitter

Lady Gaga has provoked controversy among her millions of Twitter followers after writing that "pop singers don't eat".

The Telephone singer was accused of promoting a negative message and encouraging eating disorders after posting the message following a trip to the gym.

Gaga wrote: "Just killed back to back spin classes. Eating a salad dreaming of a cheeseburger #PopSingersDontEat #IWasBornThisWay."

But followers hit out at the star's words, with one writing: "I'm stunned that you would promote such an unhealthy attitude towards food to your fans when you claim to be so righteous."

Another stated: "Why would you even promote a message like that? Disgusting that you'd joke about such a serious illness."

Others, however, supported the star. One fan tweeted: "But it's so true... our society likes to see fit bodies... it's not healthy I know but it's just the truth."

Gaga, meanwhile, is set to jet off to Korea to perform at Seoul's Olympic Stadium later this month.

The eccentric star has also announced dates at London's Twickenham Stadium on September 8 this year and at Manchester Arena on September 11.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Gemini:

Don't bring your work home with you. Although you're wonderfully efficient in your job, you require different skills when dealing with friends and family. Be generous with your praise, resources and encouragement. Someone who is struggling needs moral support. Giving a lecture about personal responsibility will not help. Instead, lend a sympathetic ear. Ask questions. Picture things from the other person's point of view. A receptive attitude will strengthen your relationship.More
