Lady Gaga jumped off a building, put on a killer performance, and faced the haters with majestic grace.

During Gaga’s Super Bowl halftime show, body-shaming trolls took to Twitter to call the star “fat” and “flabby.” In response, she posted a wonderfully uplifting message on her Instagram to stick it to the haters and encourage her fans.

Without giving the trolls the satisfaction of bringing her down, she shut down the negativity with self respect, and encouraged her fans to take the same approach. Talk about turning a negative into a positive. 

“I’m proud of my body and you should be proud of yours too,” Gaga wrote. “Be you, and be relentlessly you. That’s the stuff of champions.”

Girl, we couldn’t agree more.
