Is it just me, or is there a bad smell round here? Oh, right, that could just be the stench of Lady Gaga and Perez Hilton airing their dirty laundry in public.
Let’s go back a few years – Perez Hilton is using his blog to force people out of the closet, post crotch-shots of underage girls and making up such inspired and original nicknames as ‘Jennifer MANiston’. This is then followed by an epiphany that he sullies the good name of ’cynical and bitter celebrity gossip blogger’ and a promise to never be mean to anyone again. As it turns out, like a small child that’s been forced to apologize for biting a classmate, he just meant that he’d be more sneaky with it next time.
If you’re unfortunate enough to follow Hilton on Twitter, you’ll have noticed the childish glee he’s been taking in pointing out that his one time ‘wifey’ Lady Gaga’s new single ‘Applause’ hasn’t reached the top of the charts (just a measly number five), on top of all the sly digs about ticket sales and crazy fans over the past few years. Gaga apparently got sick of this, and decided to reignite the feud that’s been on the backburner for a few months. Why do all celebrity feuds have to involve this woman in some way?
It’s difficult to be objective when dealing with people as polarizing as Lady Gaga and Perez Hilton, but you could write the amount of people that would be surprised by this being true on the back of a stamp. By the way, if anyone wants to provide an artist’s impression of what that text would look like, feel free to leave it in the comments.
It doesn’t just stop there, a fan tweeted Gaga on Sunday to tell her that Perez was in her apartment building. Skipping over the fact that the fan must of also have been stalking around outside her home, Gaga again tackled the situation through Twitter. Anyone else pining for the days of pistols at dawn to settle an argument?
@PerezHilton STAY AWAY FROM ME + MY FAMILY YOU ARE SICK TRYING TO RENT AN APARTMENT IN MY BUILDING TO STALK ME. LEAVE ME ALONE!!!
Well, the well-composed loftiness sure went out the window.
“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.”
Both tweets have been deleted now, for reasons unknown but probably something to do with the fact that Gaga has caught enough flack for her fans threatening to kill anyone that so much as gives her the stink eye.
You can read Perez’s rebuttal here if you really want to, but if you want the TL;DR version, he was apparently just house-hunting in New York and happened to be shown a place in Gaga’s building.
At the risk of sounding like a broken record, all of the recent drama surrounding Gaga seems to coincide with her various projects – the stalking allegations were posted just a day before the video for Applause dropped. Speaking of which, here it is:
She missed a trick by not making it a bare knuckle fight between her, Perez Hilton and that ‘hood rat’ personal assistant that’s suing her for all she has. Now that would break some records.
