Lady Gaga could learn a thing or two from her own body revolution.
In a recent interview with U.K.'s Stylist, the 26-year-old "Born This Way" singer, who recently launched a "body revolution" campaign in response to media coverage of her recent 30-pound weight gain, gave new mom Adele a backward compliment about her body.
"Adele is bigger than me, how come nobody says anything about it?" Gaga said, recounting how her mother called her after the Internet was all abuzz in September with photos of Gaga looking curvier than before.

But it turned out this was a rhetorical question, as the pop star really just wanted to compliment the "Someone Like You" singer for being progressive when it comes to body image.
"She's so wonderful and I think her confidence is something I have to match," Gaga continued. "She has set the bar very high for a lot of woman. I need to be a confident woman and just say politically active things when I can that are helpful to young people."

In a weird instance of serendipity, Gossip frontwoman Beth Ditto also commented on Adele's weight in a new interview with the Advocate. But even though she echoed Gaga's sentiments, she spoke a lot more eloquently.
"I think it's really cool that there are people like Adele on the cover of Vogue and Rolling Stone," Ditto said, "and like I think it's really important that people are talking about your body, because if they don't, then you'll never be able to break that barrier."
But that's not to say the 31-year-old rocker, who regularly walks down Jean-Paul Gaultier's runway and is the face of Donatella Versace's Versus line, doesn't feel for women like Gaga, who were once thin and then suddenly put on weight. In fact, Ditto writes about these ladies in her new memoir, "Coal to Diamonds."
"I feel sorry… for people who've had skinny privilege and then have it taken away from them," the memoir reads. "I have had a lifetime to adjust to seeing how people treat women who aren't their idea of beautiful and therefore aren't their idea of useful, and I had to find ways to become useful to myself."
