Shining & Falling Stars: Lady Gaga & Kristen Stewart

November 10th, 2012 12:00pm EST

Lady Gaga Shining Star - Lady Gaga: Lady Gaga is a shining star for 2 reasons this week- for being philanthropic by donating $1 million for Hurricane Sandy relief, and by setting a good example for embracing her curvier figure. The star gained about 30 pounds, and she’s not ashamed of it! She was spotted on the beach in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on Wednesday in turquoise blue bikini, and she looks great! She was seen waving to fans from a rooftop pool. In September, Lady Gaga admitted that she has in fact gained weight, and that she “does not feel bad” about her weight gain. Gaga shared on Twitter,"To all the girls that think you're ugly because you're not a size 0, you're the beautiful one," and she added "It's society who's ugly.” In today’s society, so much emphasis is placed on exterior and body image, and people all around the world male and female, of all ages struggle with body images issues on a daily basis. It’s nice to see a celeb stand up for herself, and bash the tabloids for criticizing her weight. She’s even started a “Body Revolution” on her website, as a tool of encouragement for her fans to embrace themselves just as they are. For that, I say Go Gaga!

Falling Star - Kristen Stewart: No one is perfect, but if you make a mistake, own up to it! And while Twilight star Kristen Stewart did admit to cheating on boyfriend Robert Pattinson, she dodged the question of their relationship status on an interview this week on the “Today Show.” Anchor Savannah Guthrie asked Stewart if she is back with Pattinson, and Stewart responded with, “Funny you mention that, I’m just going to let people watch whatever little movie they would like to think our lives are, and keep them guessing, I always say." First off- let’s get one thing straight here. She made a VERY public apology for cheating on her boyfriend with director Rupert Sanders. She said, "I jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I'm so sorry.” It’s brave of her to admit it and take ownership for what she did, but if you’re spotted out and about with Robert Pattinson, you’ve got to expect that your fans will suspect you are back together, and naturally will want to know what’s going on. And if you already issued a public apology, then you might as well be public about whether you are back together or not. What are you trying to hide? There are people who do work out relationships after cheating happens, and if you did then just admit it. You won’t be the first that’s cheated, and a lot of fans out there respect honesty. I consider Kristen Stewart’s attempt at being smug on her relationship status, a FAIL. I give this Twilight actress a thumbs down this week.
