Lady Gaga: You Booze, You Lose (the Pounds)

Whiskey and yoga. That’s how Lady Gaga stays fit.

“I’m on the drunk diet,” the pop diva said on the Sirius Morning Mash Up radio show. “I like to drink whisky and stuff while I’m working.”

The star’s unorthodox weight loss regimen is built on a “work hard, play hard” mentality.

“The deal is, I’ve got to work out every day, and I work out hung over if I’m hung over,” she said.

The comments had all the pizzazz the provocative songstress is known for, but they were also a little promotion for her partner.

Gaga’s beau, New York bar owner, partier, and long-distance runner Luc Carl has just signed on to write a book called “The Drunk Diet,” according to the New York Daily News.

The tome will detail how he lost 40 pounds without giving up a raucous nightlife.

But, staying slim is about more than just book sales for Mother Monster.

“I’m at a turning point in my career where I really want to perfect singing live while dancing,” she said.

Two-hour live performances like the one she gave in Atlantic City Saturday night are grueling cardiovascular affairs when you’re not lip-synching.

“I’ve never been a lip-syncher, and I don’t intend on it,” the “Born This Way” star added.

So to stay in top form, Gaga relies on modern dance, yoga, and yes, whiskey.
