  • Lady Gaga is "sick and obsessed with her weight," according to unauthorized biographer Ian Halperin, who has a hit or miss track record and uncanny ability to tap into the id of our celebrity industrial complex. Because it's true, Gaga occasionally shrinks, and it's weird that celebrity women often lose weight as they age, instead of gain it. This is due both to the fame-weight loss correlation (see also: Brittany Murphy, Jennifer Hudson) and to shifts in body standards (see also: Angelina, Aniston, the cast of Desperate Housewives). Quoth Halperin: "Those who have worked with her on tour reported to me that Gaga barely ate for weeks at a time to fit into her costume. She is sick and obsessed with her weight. One friend told me, Gaga will stare at herself in the mirror for hours on end, analyzing and critiquing her body. It's an unhealthy obsession." It used to be a joke to Gaga ("Pop stars should not eat," she once melodramatizes) but now, says Halperin, it is real. [Daily Mail, image via AP]
