Lady Gaga is opening up about her struggles with an eating disorder, deciding instead to flaunt her so-called curvy flaws and launching a campaign for others to do the same.

Firing back at tabloid attacks on her 25-pound weight gain, the singer posted photos of herself wearing only a bra and panties on her website Tuesday.

Gaga says she's battled with anorexia and bulimia since she was 15.

Now, she's celebrating her so-called curvy flaws in a blog entitled "A Body Revolution 2013."

On the site, Lady Gaga invites fans to post their own photos in an effort to "make their flaws famous."

In the ArkLatex, we're getting local reaction to Gaga's campaign, and how people here handle the daily struggle to stay in shape without compromising their health.

For Kelly Tschopp of Shreveport, the campaign carries a welcome message. "We as a society have put celebrities on a pedestal that when they come out and they share their struggles and they share their accomplishments with that struggle I think that really speaks loudly to us. They're human and they have the same struggles that we do and they can be overcome."

Tschopp says she's worked out on and off for more than 10 years, and even with her steady routine, she says she still has times when she feels self-conscious.
