Pop icon Lady Gaga is no stranger to harsh the occasional harsh critique from the media or fellow pop stars, the singer recently opened up about a barb recently thrown at her by Demi Lovato. Gaga recently shocked fans during a performance at SXSW where she had artist Millie Brown vomit on her. Former Disney starlet and singer Lovato threw shade at the singer when she criticized the fellow pop singer for glamorizing eating disorders. Both women have admitted to suffer eating disorders in the past.
Lovato took to Twitter with the following message, ” As if we didn’t have enough people glamorizing eating disorders already. Bottom line, it’s not ‘cool’ or ‘artsy’ at all.” In late 2010, Lovato quit touring with The Jonas Brothers to enter rehab for personal issues. A few months later, she returned home. Shortly afterward, the singer admitted she suffered numerous issues including drugs, alcohol, and bulimia. It has been over three years since Lovato successfully completed treatment and she’s going on strong.
E! News recently got the chance to chat with Lady Gaga and she opened up her true feelings about the Demi Lovato critique. “This performance had absolutely nothing to do with any eating disorder, and we never intended for it to be taken that way”, Mother Monster summed it up. ““I’m really proud of the performance and really stand by the message of rage and pain that we were trying to express in that moment.”
Gaga clearly has zero regrets. This was not the first time fellow artists slammed the unique artist for her questionable performances. Earlier this year, outspoken British television star Sharon Osbourne ripped her to shreds after a beef the singer had with her daughter Kelly Osbourne. She said the singer was a hypocrite for bashing her daughter’s work on on Fashion Police and even threw shade at her’s fashion choices, proclaiming the star’s infamous red meat dress made her sick. Last year, the G.U.Y singer also got in a huge feud with gossip blogger and former friend Perez Hilton, who later slammed the star on The Wendy Williams Show. He proclaimed, “She has a history of, and I don’t want to name names — she globs on to people, uses them and once they’re no longer of use to her will just throw them aside. That is what I’ve observed.” Hilton added there was no chance of reconciliation.
Hilton and Gaga’s public feud started on social media. The singer accused the blogger of stalking her. Hilton reportedly sent the singer a threatening image of her in a wheelchair with pop singer Madonna aiming a gun at the young singer’s head.
Lady Gaga is one of those rare personalities who truly polarizes the public. People either love her or hate. Regardless of anyone’s personal stance, she remains strong. Even little critiques and sharp thrown by the likes of former teen stars such as Demi Lovato can’t bring Lady Gaga down as she opened up about having zero regrets.
