Miley Cyrus and Lady Gaga have caused a media uproar recently with some of their Twitter posts. Both stars have made references to not eating– which angers fans that believe Miles and Gaga are promoting anorexia.
Miley tweeted a photo of herself on April 8th smelling the inside of a Carl’s Jr. bag, with the caption “I can’t eat it. So I’m just gonna smell the shittttt out of it! My mouth is LITERALLY watering.” Recent photographs of the starlet have also surfaced showcasing her uber-tiny body.
Lady Gaga has kept mum since the post and hasn’t responded to the Twitter or media backlash that believes she is promoting anorexia, but Miley has taken a different approach.
Cyrus attempted to quiet rumors the same day via Twitter:
For everyone calling me anorexic I have a gluten and lactose allergy. It’s not about weight it’s about health. Gluten is crapppp anyway!

Miley’s sister Noah came to singer/actress’ defense by tweeting the same day: “you tell’m, sissy!” Miley then responded with “love u noie! U saw how much I ate today at Easter lunch but all of it was healthy and even more fulfilling! Health is happiness!”
Gaga and Cyrus are both known to exercise frequently. Gaga’s trainer has her do cardio, dance and lift weights and Miley has been known to attend Pilates classes frequently in West Hollywood and strictly adheres to her gluten-free diet, which means cutting out foods like bread, pasta and baked goods that contain gluten. She even tweeted to one follower “everyone should try no gluten for a week! The change in your skin, physical and mental health is amazing! U won’t go back!”
