Photo: Lady Gaga vs. Perez Hilton - "Ignore Him" Says Pop Star to Fans
After gossip blogger Perez Hilton continued to anger Lady Gaga, the pop star took to Twitter to tell her fans just “ignore him.”
Following the release of Gaga’s latest single “Applause,” Hilton (born Mario Armando Lavandeira, Jr.) proceeded to tweet the singer about how the single’s sales were being eclipsed by those of Katy Perry’s “Roar.”
On Friday, the “Poker Face” singer fought back tweeting:
Still have the text Perez sent me of me in a wheelchair w the words KARMA written across + Madonna pointing a gun at me. Day of my accident— Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) August 16, 2013
When her fans, whom she lovingly calls Little Monsters began to attack the blogger, Gaga added:
Please monsters do not be affected by someone like this NOTHING merits this kind of hatred. Im ok & I always survive. Ignore him. Just Dance— Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) August 16, 2013
After being informed that Hilton was in her building, Gaga continued to address the situation and called him a stalker, stating, “DO I NEED TO BE SHOT IT IN THE HEAD FOR PEOPLE TO UNDERSTAND THAT HIM AND EVERYONE ELSE THAT HARASSES ME HAS GONE TOO FAR? IM A HUMAN BEING.”
Though he did not address the cause of the feud in detail, Hilton released the following statement Sunday afternoon:
My heart hurts that my former very good friend Lady GaGa, a person I used to call my ‘wifey’ and traveled the world with, is making very public and very untrue allegations about me on Twitter. While it is still too painful for me to go into detail about why I chose to no longer make her a part of my life, I will say that I am a critic and not a stalker.
Any allegation that I am stalking her is utterly false, defamatory and now appear to be putting me in danger. I will continue to be a critic—in a way that is not mean or involves name-calling, and I will continue to have an opinion and talk about music and songs, like GaGa’s “Applause.” As the suggestion that I pose a danger to GaGa is preposterous, if fans want to send a message of support to her, they should buy her music instead of sending me death threats.
