Over the weekend, an online battle between Perez Hilton and Lady Gaga broke out and the news has created an Internet buzz Monday morning. Lady Gaga accused Perez Hilton of stalking her and showing up where she lives. She tweeted this to Perez Hilton:
"STAY AWAY FROM ME + MY FAMILY YOU ARE SICK TRYING TO RENT AN APARTMENT IN MY BUILDING TO STALK ME. LEAVE ME ALONE!!!
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...I just want to make music+make people smile. Im sorry to all the fans who are trying to enjoy whats suppose to be a happy time. Gone too far."
Perez Hilton is best known for his gossip column about celebrities, and spending time with many of them. He has been great friends with Lady Gaga over the years and a great supporter of her. Last week, he tweeted about how great Katie Perry’s new song Roar is and that seemed to set off Lady Gaga because she mentioned it in one of the original tweets.
It took some time, but Perez Hilton later replied by retweeting Joseph Kahn’s (another gossip columnist) tweet about Lady Gaga:
"I am over Gaga's fan base behavior. Race insults, death threats, homophobic slurs. I've never seen such awfulness on behalf of any singer."
Over the weekend, Perez Hilton released this statement:
"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."
Lady Gaga responded with this Tweet:
"YOU ARE A LIAR I KEPT EVERY PSYCHOTIC TEXT U SENT TO MY PHONE."
Perez Hilton responded to Lady Gaga several more times and the battle doesn’t seem to be ending anytime soon.
