Lady Gaga‘s fans have taken aim at Internet trolls who poked fun at the Poker Face singer’s belly during her Super Bowl halftime spectacular.
The singer stripped down to an American football-styled outfit, leaving her midriff exposed for the finale to her 13-minute hits set – and some mean viewers didn’t like what they saw, accusing the pop star of letting it all hang out.

One troll wrote: “I just feel like #Gaga’s dough should’ve been tucked in better.”
That remark and other negatives riled up Gaga’s legion of fans, who took to social media to clap back at the singer’s critics.

“Shoutout to lady gaga’s stomach roll for showing girls that you don’t need to have a perfect body to absolutely kill it,” Erin Moore wrote, while another fan added: “LADY GAGA GOT UP THERE WITH HER REAL BODY WITHOUT A PERFECTLY FLAT STOMACH OR AIRBRUSH I LOVE HER SO MUCH.”
