Katy Perry Slammed by Lady Gaga After Comparisons

Katy Perry was majorly slammed by Lady Gaga after comparisons were made between the two recording artists. It was during Gaga’s speech at the South by Southwest Music Festival on Friday that she dissed comparisons made between her and the Roar singer.

“I don’t know what the f–k-all I have to do with Katy Perry,” she said. “Our music is so completely different. I couldn’t be more different, really. I really don’t fit in pop music in a way, but I came through it and I’d like to think I changed it in some way so you can feel like you don’t have to fit into a mold.”

It seems like Lady Gaga has experienced a change of heart since she last talked about Katy Perry. That was in August when her song Applause was released at just about the same tome Katy released Roar.

“I really like Katy Perry and I like her fans,” she told Ryan Seacrest during a post Applause release interview.

Something Katy Perry definitely wouldn’t do is carry on the way Lady Gaga performed at the South by Southwest Music Festival. In a collaboration with vomit painter (yes, you read that correctly–vomit) Millie Brown, Gaga was vomited on during her performance and continued throughout her part of the show drenched in puke.

“I’ve known Millie [Brown] for I think like five years now and we’ve actually collaborated before . . . she was just in town and so we thought we would collaborate again,” Gaga explained of their collaboration during her keynote speech, as see in the video clip above. “It was just exciting to see people talk about performance art on the internet. We really just did it because we believe in the performance and we believe in what it meant to the song.”

If that’s the kind of performance the Art Pop singer engages in, then Katy Perry should be beyond grateful that Lady Gaga doesn’t want any comparisons drawn between the two. Considering vomit to be art–and allowing oneself to be painted in it–is just plain disgusting.

Roar on, Katy Perry. Ride that Dark Horse. Just stay out of the way of projectile vomiters, or your crowds might thin out considerably.

    Yeah, Gag gag isn’t Katy Perry. Katy has much more talent and class. Doesn’t need to be vomited on and drenched in puke to get her fan base.

      I think Gaga is smarter than thinking getting vomited on is a good way to get a fan base and besides she’s got a fan base already. SWXW is a indie fest with lots of alternative bands and the whole vomit thing is just performance art that’s very much in the rebellious spirit of this festival.

      Talent? No. Class? Maybe. Lady Gaga was admitted and attended NYU. Unlike Katy Perry. She is more intelligent and artistic.

      • Lori

        Just because she went to college does not mean she is intelligent.

      “Katy has much more talent and class” LMAO, whatever helps you sleep at night. Katy being even mentioned in the same sentence as Gaga is a crime. Lady Gaga changed pop music, NONE of her contemporaries have reached the level of super stardom that she has reached. Her fashion and music has been copied from Katy Perry and MANY others hunny, that girl started to wear wigs AFTER Gaga made it cool.

    Gaga didn’t slam Katy at all and anyone would know that if they took the time to watch the interview. The media as been trying to start a fight between these 2 since day 1, putting them up against each other to draw traffic to their websites and articles. There’s a big difference between slamming comparisons to Katy Perry and slamming Katy and Gaga has never slammed Katy.

    lmao someone who needs to be covered in Vomit in order to garner attention is no artist but just well…an attention whore. Katy Perry a pop singer thats it, nothing more, she will not be remembered in the next 10 years same with the vomit mess known as Gaga.

    • George

      Lady Gaga changed pop music. She will be in the books. You’ll see.

    I’d pound Katy to Egypt and back!

      Apparently Carice. According to this freelance writer.


    You sound so bitter. Like shut up.

  • Henna

    spell check !

  • JuneBug81

    Neither is exactly the epitome of artistic integrity.

  • lindy west

    Sounds like Gaga is confusing her art with “Gag -a”….she seemingly will do anything for shock (and attention) value.

  • michael ward

    Nice article. I didn’t know about that Gaga stunt but my estimation for Perry just tripled.

  • Michael Ward

    Back in the 80’s Madonna bugged me by always having to lead the pack in pushing the envelope and tip toeing the line of offensive but I think my estimation of Madonna just tripled too.

    Gaga is the best, she is the only one who has reached the popularity Madonna had in the 80’s. She has that same tenacity to do outrageous things, Gaga though is much more talented in terms of voice, that girl can sing.
