Once upon a time, Lady Gaga and Perez Hilton were super close. He referred to her as his “wifey”, and the two made many a tour stop together. He aggressively promoted her music, and she gave him the occasional comment or photograph to run on his incredibly popular website. Fortunately or unfortunately, those days are over. Something happened to end the friendship some time ago, and over the past few weeks, the animosity has suddenly spilled out for the entire world to see.
The tension started rising last week after Gaga released “Applause” and Hilton basically trashed it. He made it clear that he thought Katy Perry’s song, “Roar”, was far better. This naturally led to some hate from Gaga’s fans and some more negative “Applause”-related quotes from Hilton.
Then Lady Gaga weighed in via her Twitter account…
In response, Perez started retweeting a series of death threats he got from many of Gaga’s followers and then sounded off about how afraid he felt for his safety…
At first, it seemed like that might settle the feud down a little bit, but something incredibly strange happened. Perez, who is planning to move to New York City, looked at an apartment in Lady Gaga’s building. If he’s to be believed in a post on his website, he had no idea she lived there and the real estate agent showed him a bunch of different houses. If she’s to be believed in a series of since deleted tweets, he knew exactly what he was doing and was just acting like a creepy stalker asshole and trying to get under her skin.
It’s impossible to tell exactly where the truth lies, especially since neither celeb is talking about why their friendship ended. That being said, people are still jumping on different sides. So, who do you got? Are you rolling with Gaga or do you back Perez? Let us know your thoughts by voting in the poll below…
