Lady Gaga is opening up about her feud with celebrity blogger, Perez Hilton.
The friends-turned-foes have been at each others throats ever since an interview between the two went sour.
“What happened was we were doing an interview … and in the middle of the interview he started asking me really terrible questions,” Gaga said during an interview with Howard Stern Tuesday.
“He was being very negative about Born This Way and we had had a lot to drink. He was supposed to be my friend and I felt betrayed, so I started crying….My friend had to come in and pull the camera out. They wouldn’t turn the cameras off. He apologized, but I felt like it was like, ‘But I’m Perez Hilton so I’m allowed to treat you this way.’”
Mother Monster continues, “I looked at him and said, ‘Just because you are who you are, does not mean our friendship doesn’t mean anything when the cameras turn on. So, now I see who you really are.’ I was done after that. He’s just mad that I don’t want to hang out anymore. I don’t want to be around fake people. I really believed, when I first met him, that he wanted to change.”
Gaga touched on her previous claim that Perez is a stalker and how she feared for her life when he looked into moving into a NYC apartment next to hers.
L.G. reveals, “I freaked out so much about it because I have no rights. My sister [Natali] was sleeping there and it made me scared and upset…And then he lied and told everybody that he wasn’t stalking me, but that next day – after I asked him to leave me alone – he put an offer in on two apartments in the building!”
A very paranoid Gaga added, “Why do you need to live in my apartment? There’s only one reason: to try to hurt me, or harass me, or blow yourself up. If you hate me, hate me from over there.”
And just as predicted by Lady Gaga, Perez shot back at the singer’s claims on Howard via his Twitter.
“@LadyGaga So you called ME fake on the @HowardStern this morning. Ha!” Perez fired back, later adding, “Thanks for the laugh! Have you looked in the mirror lately???’…’And I was the one who pulled away from u after I realized what a real-life vampire you are! It’s been your M.O. your whole career!’…’@LadyGaGa Keep talking about me, though. I love the press!”
