Lady Gaga Claps Back At The Chainsmokers
The Chainsmokers recently faced the wrath of Little Monsters when they trashed “Perfect Illusion,” but Lady Gaga has held her tongue. Until now. “#AYO @TheChainsmokers maybe u guys’ll like this 1 better,” she tweeted this morning (October 18) along with a link of her new single. As far as clap-backs go, it’s pretty tame — but still pointed enough to get her point across. The chart-topping duo was quick to reply with: “Haha @ladygaga RESPECT.” I guess the politest beef of all time is over now.
How did it start? Well, The Chainsmokers were asked their opinion of “Perfection Illusion” in an interview with Rolling Stone and were a little too honest. “It sucks,” Alex Pall declared. His bandmate, Drew Taggart, was more diplomatic. “She’s a great artist — like, Jeff Koons made a sculpture of her…” However, he still couldn’t find anything nice to say about the song. The charts and history may be on the “Closer” hitmakers’ side, but at least Gaga got a little revenge. See the exchange below.
Haha @ladygaga RESPECT 🙌🏼
