Lady gaga has opened up about her struggles with body issues.

Pop queen Lady Gaga has made another revelation about her personal life. The "Poker Face" singer recently opened up about her experience with eating disorders, including battles with anorexia and bulimia since she was 15 years old. The news came when she announced the launch of a new movement, which she dubs "Body Revolution." The movement will be a part of her foundation, and will focus its efforts on changing the perceptions of body image. "Be brave and celebrate with us your 'perceived flaws,' as society tells us," said the star. "May we make our flaws famous, and thus redefine the heinous." Over the years, the singer has revealed many things about her personal life. Here are a few of the notable revelations that she has shared since rising to fame.

She was bullied

Several celebs have opened up about their personal experience with bullying, and Gaga is one of them. She has shared several stories, including one in which some boys threw her into a trash can while she was in middle school. The singer has used her fame to be active in the anti-bullying movement, even calling for it to be officially declared a crime. Along with her mother, she has been active in the movement to stop bullying among young people.

She's opened up about bisexuality

Not only has the star freely admitted that she is bisexual, but she has also written a song about it. She revealed that "Poker Face" was inspired by her own bisexuality, making it one of her most personal songs. While she has revealed that she is attracted to women, she has also said that that attraction is purely physical. The singer, who has credited the gay community with her increase in fame, has been a major advocate for the LGBT cause.

She dressed as a man for two weeks

Plenty of people have struggled to understand why relationships have gone wrong, but Gaga took things to a whole new level. In an interview with Oprah Winfrey, the star admitted that she dressed like a man for two weeks in an effort to better understand her romantic failures. "I taped down my breasts," she told Oprah. "I went through a severe psychological change. I really wanted to delve into the mind of what I believe to have been my vice in men. Why am I dating the same guy over and over again?" This experiment served as the inspiration for Jo Calderone, the alter ego that she first revealed in 2011.
