The style expert won’t back down to the popstar — even if she did call him a fashion bully on ‘The View’! He responds to her accusations here.

Tim Gunn is known for his style expertise and he isn’t afraid to voice his opinion — although it looks like his honesty has stuck a chord with Lady Gaga. The singing star went on The View on Aug. 1, where she called Tim a “bully” — but he was quick to respond to her accusations. “What I’ve said about her is very matter-of-fact. She doesn’t wear clothes, she wears costumes! So would I ever put her on a best dressed list or list her among fashion icons? Of course not,” he told us.

Tim went on to compliment Gaga, even if he might not be fond of some of her outrageous wardrobe choices. “She’s remarkably talented and the world’s a better place for having her, but best dressed list? Not in my vocabulary!”

Lady Gaga won The Fashion Icon Award at the CFDA Fashion Awards so I couldn’t disagree more with Tim.

Who ever did this interview/article needs to be ashamed of themselves.

Twisting the delightful and respected Tim Gunn’s words and intentions will come back to get you ten fold. Karma’s a b*tch honey.

Fortunately, Tim’s so much smarter than you. Notice how he pointedly says “If she was in fact talking about herself…” in reference to Lady Gaga? He said that because the man KNOWS Gaga called him a bully regarding HILLARY CLINTON but was being polite to you in order to continue the ‘interview’. Lady Gaga called him a bully about what he said in reference to Hillary Clinton’s pant suits and how he thinks she must be gender confused, you dolt. Lady Gaga clearly couldn’t give a feck about what anyone has to say about what she wears but, maybe you don’t have eyes in your head? You’re clearly lacking a brain as you lost a stellar opportunity to talk to Tim, a man who denied his own sexuality until his early twenties – and still does to an extent claiming as he claims he’s asexual – by turning it into some non-existent ‘fight’ about Lady Gaga’s wardrobe.

“Tim Gunn Fires Back Against Lady Gaga…”

Score another one for the clever, avuncular, and ever so delightful Mr. Gunn – and minus 100 for who ever did this interview/article.

agreed – to make her best dressed would make a mockery of the entire list
