Lady Gaga's fans have taken aim at trolls who criticised her appearance during the Superbowl on Sunday. One wrote: "I just feel like Gaga's dough should've been tucked in better."

Hundreds of women have hit back, praising singer for her body confidence. "Lady Gaga got up there with her real body without a perfectly flat stomach or airbrush" said one. Others called her a 'great role model for girls'.
