Lady Gaga isn't shy about displaying her newfound buxom figure.

It was business as usual for the avant garde singer as she exited her hotel in Paris on Friday. The "I Was Born This Way" oddball accentuated her bountiful curves in a figure hugging, yet whimsical leopard-print dress, opaque tights and her signature skyscraper platform boots. Her hair was coiffed with Parisian flair, the weighty mass twisted in a retro knot atop her head.

The 26-year-old - who lit up a joint while performing at a concert in Amsterdam, told the Huffington Post she's currently dieting because of a 25-pound weight gain.

I'm dieting right now, because I gained, like, 25 pounds," she told the publication. "And you know I really don't feel bad about it, not even for a second. I have to be on such a strict diet constantly. It's hard because it's a quite vigorous show, so I tend to bulk up, get muscular, and I really don't like that. So I'm trying to find a new balance."

The person she holds responsible for her fuller figure is none other than her father, specifically, the delicious Italian fare served at his upper west side restaurant, Joanne. We suppose restaurateur Art Smith should share some of the blame since he is the head chef.  

"I love eating pasta and pizza," Gaga explained. "I'm a New York Italian girl. That's why I have been staying out of New York. My father opened a restaurant. It's so amazing . . . it's so freaking delicious, but I'm telling you I gain five pounds every time I go in there. So my dad wants me to eat at the restaurant, and I'm, like, I've got to go where I can drink green juice."

Gaga is a daddy's girl at heart, at his request, the pop star decided to keep all of her tattoos on the left side of her body. How sweet.

"It was actually per my father's request," she explained. "He asked that I remain, on one side, slightly normal."
