Lady Gaga - Lady Gaga: You don't need to look like a supermodel to be great

Lady GaGa has urged women to stop worrying about their weight because people who achieve great things do not have to look like ''supermodels''.

The 27-year-old pop superstar has suffered with fluctuating weight throughout her career and has been criticised for being both too thin and overweight.

But Gaga has dismissed society's obsession with women's figures and insists it's time people concentrated on what they're going to do with their lives rather than what they look like.

In the February 2014 issue of FASHION Magazine, she said: ''I want to remind everyone that people who win Nobel Peace Prizes and cure diseases are not supermodels. Your legacy does not need to be a perception of beauty that's not realistic.''

Although Gaga is now one of the world's biggest singers she insists she would still be wearing eccentric outfits and pushing the boundaries of pop if she was an unsigned artist playing in bars and small venues in her native New York City because music is her life.

She explained: ''There's this implication that if I wasn't so successful I would have to stop. But I never would have stopped. I would be in some bar; being Lady Gaga.''

As well as her music, Gaga is also proud of the influence her unique dress sense has had on mainstream fashion and is pleased women are taking inspiration from her look.

The 'Applause' singer said: ''I was in H&M the other day, looking around just to see the effect that Monster culture has had on street fashion. People used to say, 'Who is this weird girl with her crazy outfits?' ''
