The 'Born This Way' singer hits back at criticism about her weight with new online campaign.

Lady Gaga has posted several pictures of herself online wearing just her underwear following recent reports that she has gained weight.

The star's weight has been under the spotlight over the last seven days, with Lady Gaga insisting she does not have a problem with her current figure.

In a lengthy message on her website, she said her boyfriend Taylor Kinney preferred her "curvier" and that she appreciated support form her fans.

Lady Gaga's pictures have been posted on the Twitter account A Body Revolution 2013, which is thought to be connected to the star as it links to her Born This Way Foundation.

As well as pictures of Lady Gaga, the Twitter page also features tweets about some of the star's fans, who have also uploaded pictures of their bodies.

On, Lady Gaga said she was joined the Body Revolution campaign "to inspire some bravery and breed some compassion".

Earlier, Lady Gaga had defended herself once again from criticism about her weight on her social-networking website.

"I have been startled and overwhelmed with pride and emotion the past few days. Gratitude mostly," she said. "Seeing you post photos of things on your bodies and in your minds that you feel society tells you should be ashamed of.

"You are showing them you have no shame. You are brave, strong, and accepting not only of yourself, but of others through your experiences."

Lady Gaga is currently on her 'Born This Way Ball' world tour, which called in the UK earlier this month.
