Uh oh! It looks like Adam, 34, and Lady Gaga, 27, have engaged in a public Twitter battle with each other over what constitutes being an artist in the music industry!
Two of the biggest musicians in the industry have gotten into it on Twitter — and neither Adam Levine or Lady Gaga are pushovers when it comes to voicing their opinions! Adam stated on Twitter what he thinks constitutes a true pop artist — and it sounded like a dig aimed at Lady Gaga!
Lady Gaga Gets Dissed By Adam Levine In Twitter Battle
The Maroon 5 singer stirred up controversy when he tweeted some defining statements about his thoughts on pop music and what defines a true artist in the industry.
Adam tweeted on Sept. 20, “Ugh..recycling old art for a younger generation doesn’t make you an artist. It makes you an art teacher.”
He then tweeted a follow-up, saying, “I unabashedly love writing and performing pop music for both myself AND everyone around me. That’s It. It doesn’t need any extra sauce.”
It seemingly could have been directed toward any number of current pop artists — but was it aimed at Lady Gaga? We think so, especially since her new album is called ARTPOP, saying it all!
Looks like the megastar, known for her over-the-top performances and many comparisons to Madonna by the media and critics, has also garnered The Voice judge as a critic. We’re guessing she took major offense to his tweets about art and music — since she tweeted a response back!
Lady Gaga Replies to Adam Levine’s Diss
The “Applause” singer tweeted a reply that was very seemingly directed toward Adam on Sept. 21. She said, “uh oh guys the art police is here”
A true-to-form fierce Lady Gaga response! She’s always been vocal about her thought process behind her songs and how art is the biggest influence on her work, especially on her upcoming album ARTPOP, so even if the tweet wasn’t directed toward her (which we think totally was), she took issue with Adam’s stance anyway.
Looks like they’ll have to agree to disagree on what constitutes an artist!
She also tweeted on Sept. 21, “female pop is a very strict party *drinks in the corner*”
Does she want Adam to stay out and mind his own business then, furthering the divide of pop music into gender? It seems that way!
Adam Levine Disses Lady Gaga Again — About Grammar
Adam isn’t taking this Twitter feud lying down! After Lady Gaga tweeted her retorts, he fired back again on Sept. 24.
He tweeted, “Methinks thou dost protest too much…yikes!!!” Then tweeted, “by the way, im NOT an artist. i sing in a band and i make music with my friends.”
To top it all off, he ended his thoughts with, “while we’re at it we should call the grammar police.”
Wow! He not only dissed her for replying in the way she did, but then said he wasn’t an artist and likened being a musician to simply playing music with friends — and insulted her grammar! To be fair, not everyone has time to be grammatically correct in 140 characters or less.
She hasn’t replied to the most recent disses yet — but only time will tell if she will!
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Which side are you on, Adam Levine’s or Lady Gaga’s? Sound off!
