Lady Gaga has hit back at reports focussing on her weight.

In response to speculation that she had been asked to lose weight be her record label, the singer tweeted a picture of Marilyn Monroe with the caption: "To all the girls that think you're ugly because you're not a size 0, you're the beautiful one. It's society who's ugly.

"Thanks to my fans who love me no matter what, and know the meaning of real beauty and compassion. I really love you’ she told her 29 million followers.

Lady Gaga is currently touring her 'Born This Way Ball' around the world. During a radio interview earlier last week, Gaga said that she had gained weight because she had been eating at the Italian restaurant owned by her father Joe Germanotta.

In April of this year, Gaga came under fire from eating disorder groups after a joke she made relating to her diet, claiming on Twitter that "real pop stars don't eat".

In February, meanwhile, she revealed that she had suffered with eating disorders in the past and had overcome bulimia to save her singing voice. Talking about her previous body image problems, she said: "I used to throw up all the time in high school, so I'm not that confident. And maybe it's easier for me to talk about it now because I don't do it any more. 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."
