Lady Gaga has spoken! Mother Monster decided to defend Miley Cyrus last night during an appearance on Bravo’s Watch What Happens: Live! when she was asked about Cyrus’ infamous VMA performance. Why did Gaga tell host Andy Cohen that everyone should leave “Wrecking Ball” singer Cyrus alone?
"I mean, I just think everybody need to lighten up and leave her alone,” Gaga told Cohen. “Because it's pop music. Everybody's entitled to their own artistic expression, and if you have a problem with it, just change the channel."
Gaga has recently been calling out all the negativity she’s seen in public, such as the crowd booing boy band One Direction when they won at the VMAs for Song of the Summer. “I don't understand the incessant need to constantly go on and on about hating things all the time because, what, she's 20 years old? And if anything, I give her props," Gaga continued about Cyrus. "You know, she's growing up in front of the entire world and maybe she's not so happy with stuff she did in her career when she was younger and she wants to be free, so let her do what she wants."
Gaga also squashed the rumor about a reported feud with fellow singer Christina Aguilera. "I'm a very big fan of Christina Aguilera," Gaga said about The Voice judge. "From the very beginning of when my career started, there was all this controversy about the two of us. I always felt that it was very unfair.”
Gaga elaborated: "All I know is that people were talking about Christina Aguilera and Lady Gaga in the same sentence, and I was nobody! I just think it's very unfair of anyone to pit another woman against another woman, especially in the space of music when we are all just trying to be taken seriously."
"Christina is an incredible vocalist and an incredible artist," Gaga went on about the blonde bombshell. "From me to her, I'm so sorry for anything that anyone ever said to her because of my existence. And I hope that she never felt any way about it, because when I was 15, I was singing ‘I Turn to You' at the top of my lungs trying to hit all her notes. So she was an inspiration to me to have a wider vocal range, and I just think it's all total nonsense the way that they do that."
We agree with Gaga! Can’t everyone just get along?
