Lady Gaga may seem like she’s immune to criticism, but even she has feelings.
Katy Perry made headlines earlier this week for her negative assessment of Gaga’s latest music video for “Alejandro,” calling it “blasphemy.”
Gaga seems to have anticipated the negativity, and before the video even aired, she wrote on her Twitter, “So many will try to destroy me. So many, over and over, coming in periods of greatness. But in this period, I cannot be broken: GAGAKLEIN.”
GAGAKLEIN refers to her collaboration with the video’s director, Steven Klein. Gaga added, “Prejudice is a disease. And when they come for you, or refuse your worth, I will be ready for their stones. I belong to you. GAGAKLEIN.”
Gaga is one of those artists, like Madonna, that you take or leave. She knows she can’t please everybody, so she does her own thing, and seems to enjoy herself doing it.
So long as people hate on Gaga’s work, the more inclined it seems she’ll feel to push it to the next limit.
