Friday 27th December 2013 Supermodel Comments
Gaga has long championed the right for women to be accepted as they are and not to have to adhere to some stereotype that is unachievable for most. Now she is urging women to stop being obsessed by their appearance in terms of weight and looks, as Nobel Peace Prize winners are not supermodels.
The star herself has suffered from weight problems, being both larger and smaller, culminating in criticism about her appearance. Gaga now dismisses these comments thinking women should concentrate on what they want to achieve in life rather than on how they look.
Gaga assures critics that even if she had not achieved the phenomenal success she has she would still be wearing the clothes and designs she is so famous for and singing in night clubs as this is what she does.
Wednesday 18th December 2013 Voice US
Lady Gaga and Christina Aguilera perform a duet at the final of The Voice US talent show. The talented couple sang Gaga's song "Do What You Want" to a packed house attending the final of the talent show. Christina Aguilera who is a coach on the show joined Gaga on stage to sing, while the pair seemed very close with Gaga resting her head on Christina's shoulder, while champagne was served to them by a hunky waiter.
The finale to the duet came as both ladies drank the champagne then smashed the glasses on the stage floor as they hugged one another. The two blondes looked amazing and wrote affectionate pieces on Twitter about one another after the performance. The duet was superb with both artists competing for who could "smash it" the best!
Tuesday 17th December 2013 Lady Gaga's X Factor Performance
Lady Gaga appeared as a guest on the UK X Factor talent show back in October and whipped up a storm as some viewers complained about her revealing costume. British TV Watchdog officials have said they will not be investigating further.
The controversy started due to the costume being made from flesh coloured underwear, while her bra was made from sea shells. Gaga was performing her new single "Do What You Want" while some parents complained that the outfit was too revealing for primetime TV when their children would be watching. Three hundred complaints were registered with OFCOM but the performance was judged not to break broadcasting regulations.

Lady Gaga has written openly to a distressed fan online and is said to have averted the fan from committing suicide. The female fan was contacted by the singer through the Little Monsters website after she read a post that suggested the girl may be about to commit suicide.
Gaga sent the fan, who is allegedly Irish, a message urging her to reconsider. Gaga said "We all love you nothing is worth taking your own life. Remember how sad I would be, how sad we all would be. We are connected through the music and that is powerful. Listen to the music and get creative with your life. You can be and become anything you have more power than you think"
The fan later thanked Gaga stating that she had indeed intended to take her own life until she received the message from the star. The message had made her think again and she thanked Gaga for taking time out from her busy life to help. She ended by saying"You have changed my life completely".
