For somebody who tries to spread a gospel of love and acceptance, doesn’t it seem like Lady Gaga gets herself involved in an awful lot of passive-aggressive kerfluffles on Twitter?
Having taken a barrage of beef from onetime collaborator Azealia Banks, Mother Monster has now gotten into it with Maroon 5 frontman and The Voice star Adam Levine. On Friday, Levine tweeted, “Ugh … recycling old art for a younger generation doesn’t make you an artist. It makes you an art teacher.” He followed that up with the note, “I unabashedly love writing and performing pop music for both myself AND everyone around me. That’s It. It doesn’t need any extra sauce.”
Though he didn’t name any names, most everybody on the Internet decided that he was taking shots at Gaga. She responded to his comments on Saturday. “Uh oh guys the art police is here,” she tweeted.
That was the last of the exchange. It seems as though both Gaga and Levine have gone back to their respective corners, with the former gearing up for the forthcoming release of both her film debut (in Machete Kills, out Oct. 11) and her new album ARTPOP (out Nov. 8).
Meanwhile, Levine will be returning to his spinning chair on the season premiere of The Voice tonight. We judge this round a draw on all cards.
