Impossible Standards

There's been a bit of controversy that got started during last weekend's Super Bowl halftime show featuring Lady Gaga. There were a number of people on social media sites who were deriding the performer for her "flabby" stomach, which was a bit shocking to those of us who would love to be in that great of shape!
