Since getting booted off of ‘American Idol’, Colton has wasted no time publicly slamming another American idol, Lady Gaga!
Fans were shocked when frontrunner Colton Dixon got voted off American Idol on April 19. Though the 20-year-old has no regrets about trying out for the reality show, he does regret choosing to sing a Lady Gaga song!
“I think the biggest risk was ‘Bad Romance,’ and I think it was a bad risk to take because I didn’t really think it through,” Colton told E! “I’ve taken pride in knowing who I am and really taking a stance in my faith. I think in choosing ‘Bad Romance’ I turned off a lot of those voters, which are my core voters.”
Within minutes, Gaga’s band of Little Monsters took to twitter to express their displeasure over Colton’s statements. To clear up any confusion, the singer tweeted, “@emmymason @ladygaga @usatoday wasn’t saying I’m better. I’m saying I should have chosen a song to better represent me as an artist,” followed by, “@emmymason @ladygaga @usatoday I just think that for my drive and message, I’d rather do a more positive song. Nothing against her;-)”
Do YOU think Colton is blaming Lady Gaga for his elimination?
