Lady Gaga took some time recently to address the rumors that her latest album, ARTPOP, isn’t doing so well, and in doing so also spoke up about the friends who have disappointed her lately.
“I have lost love [sic] ones to the greed of money [but] it is not Interscope. They in fact love me very much and will see ‘ARTPOP’ to the end,” she said, adding that there is “no truth to many of your comments, including the 25 million dollars deficit. These are rumors that are being repeated and spread. They are completely untrue.”
Gaga went on to talk about the friends who let her down, especially when she was in the hospital last year for surgery.
“My heart breaks from the people I have trusted and loved who I’ve worked so closely with, who have used me, lied to me, worked me into the ground for the personal gain,” she wrote. “When I woke up in the hospital after my surgery there were many people that were not there. My health did not matter. I did not matter unless I could perform. This is a very hard lesson.”
While Gaga didn’t name names, there’s speculation that she might be including Perez Hilton in that statement; the former friends had a public feud last year that played out after Gaga allegedly called Hilton a “fake friend”.
“She said in an interview recently that I was a ‘fake friend’. Now if you know anything, or one thing about Perez Hilton, I think, is that I am not fake and I keep it real,” he said in a recent interview with Wendy Williams. “And, I viewed her as an IRL friend – in real life friend. I viewed her as more than just a friend. I jokingly nicknamed her ‘my wifey’. To me she was that kind of friend…She got really upset because I asked her about her boyfriend. And I’m like, I didn’t ask anything inappropriate. Just me even bringing her boyfriend up set her off. But you know, when people are on drugs and alcohol, they behave irrationally, erratically and are mean to those they love.”
