“I heard my body is a topic of conversation so I wanted to say, I'm proud of my body and you should be proud of yours too,” the 30-year-old singer captioned a pic of herself from the headline-making performance. “No matter who you are or what you do. I could give you a million reasons why you don't need to cater to anyone or anything to succeed. Be you, and be relentlessly you. That's the stuff of champions. thank you so much everyone for supporting me. I love you guys. Xoxo, gaga.”

Gaga received widespread praise for her lengthy performance at the NGR Stadium in Houston, Texas. The GRAMMY winner started the show by singing a mashup of “God Bless America” and “This Land Is Your Land” before jumping off the roof of the stadium and onto the stage.

She then transitioned into a set of some of her biggest hits, including, “Bad Romance,” “Born This Way,” “Poker Face,” and more.
