Lady Gaga has a message for her Little Monsters.
Your eyes are deceiving you. Trust her!
The 29-year-old took to Instagram to share a photo of herself practicing hip exercises following surgery to repair an injury she sustained on stage.
But most online eyes have understandably been focused on a body part aside from the pop star's hips ... look at that concave stomach!
"Up early for hip exercise! I have to do these everyday to keep my hip strong, otherwise I have pain," she wrote, perhaps anticipating some backlash.
"(fyi I'm not really that thin it's just the strech! Trust me!)."
Fans know that Lady Gaga's weight has often come under scrutiny; she’s come under fire in the past for being too thin and gaining weight.
Earlier this month, in fact, chatter abounded across the Internet about Lady Gaga being pregnant, to which the engaged artist replied:
"I'm getting a little older and many people think I'm pregnant but I tell them," she said with bluntness, that "'I'm just almost f--king 30.'"
Gaga added at the time that she has gained a "little more here and there," regarding her weight, and specifically citing her thighs.
But she can't be that insecure about her body, considering she's been posting bikini pictures during her recent trip to the Bahamas.
