Lady Gaga scored during the Super Bowl halftime show. But despite her incredible performance, some social media bullies tried to body-shame Gaga, attacking her belly and mocking her for allegedly failing with her weight loss goals. But the songstress is taking the high road when it comes to those body-shaming online bullies, turning to social media herself to respond with a positive message.

Super Bowl 2017 halftime performance

In her Super Bowl 2017 halftime performance, the Grammy winner focused on sending a message of inclusion rather than attacking political exclusion.

And in doing so, Lady Gaga skillfully transfixed her viewers, reported CNN.

Lady Gaga began her fierce performance atop Houston's NRG Stadium. She belted out "God Bless America," then smoothly segued into crooning "This Land Is Your Land." And just before the songstress leaped from the rooftop, she quoted the Pledge of Allegiance.

"One Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all," recited Gaga to the Super Bowl crowd before her and viewers at home. Her emphasis on the words "for all" rang out clearly and firmly as she then exploded into a powerful medley of her most popular songs.

Body shaming online bullies attack Lady Gaga

But it didn't take long before the online bullies emerged to attack Lady Gaga.

They ignored her strong performance and focused only on the size and shape of her body, reported USA Today. While fans responded with anger at the attacks on her belly and weight, it was the songstress herself who stepped up to deliver the perfect response.

"I heard my body is a topic of conversation so I wanted to say, I'm proud of my body and you should be proud of yours too," wrote Gaga on Instagram.

"No matter who you are or what you do. I could give you a million reasons why you don't need to cater to anyone or anything to succeed. Be you, and be relentlessly you. That's the stuff of champions."

Beyond her belly

While fans responded with more than a million "likes" for the singer's Instagram message of a positive body image, some were disappointed that in her Super Bowl performance, Gaga had not been more political in slamming Donald Trump's administration, noted NPR.

However, Lady Gaga did not address LGBTQ rights, feminism, or even Donald Trump's highly publicized immigration ban. While some fans were disappointed at the lack of attention in her Super Bowl halftime show to hot political topics, she did sing out in what some regard as her ultimate anthem, "Born This Way." And that may be her ultimate response to Trump.
