Lady Gaga has encouraged her fans to stop worrying about weight and "eat up".

The 28-year-old singer has always stood up for what she believes in by slamming Hollywood ideals about thinness and beauty.

In 2013 Gaga launched a Body Revolution page, which urged fans to accept and love the way they look. She is also behind the Born This Way Foundation, an initiative that hopes to empower youth and make the internet a safe and harmonious place for young people.

Now the star has taken to her Instagram to inspire her fans further by posting a snap of herself on stage in a mermaid shell bra, pants and fishnet tights.

"A true Venus is beautiful at any size. #BodyRevolution Don't allow Society to tell you what beauty is," she wrote.

"back when they first made painting and sculptors of the goddess she was represented as a round and fertile woman. It was in style to be thicker because food was a sign of money. eat up children. Life is too short. (sic)"

Gaga - real name Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta - has been criticised for her fluctuating weight in the past. Luckily the star has managed to shrug off criticism.

“I was acutely aware of some photos on the Internet - my mom called me and was like, ‘Did you gain weight?’” she said at the time.

“I thought, ‘Well, I don’t really care if they think I’m fat, because, quite honestly, I did gain about 30 pounds.’”

She's also commented that British singer Adele is "bigger" than her and that she hopes to "match" the star's confidence.
