Lady Gaga had her poker face on on Oct. 18 when she totally shut down The Chainsmokers, who recently said she ‘sucks’! After the brutal takedown, fans took to Twitter to get #GagaEndedTheChainsmokersParty trending, and the tweets are hilarious. See for yourself, right here.
Lady Gaga released a rockin’ new song called “A-Yo” on Oct. 18, and with it came a savage attack on The Chainsmokers! But why was the pop star so upset with the band? Turns out that Alex Pall, one half of the EDM duo, sat down for an interview with Rolling Stone in early Oct., and he said that he thinks her first single off Joanne – “Perfect Illusion” – sucks! Ouch.
Though she never responded directly to the diss, she clearly heard it. While dropping her awesome new jam on Oct. 18, Lady Gaga took a jab at the twosome by saying “#AYO @TheChainsmokers maybe u guys’ll like this 1 better ️ #NowPlaying” Not only did she call out the guys, she also included a peace sign and four cigarette emojis. Burn!
We were lowkey expecting this to turn into a total battle, but the guys responded with grace. “Haha @ladygaga RESPECT 🙌🏼,” they said, showing their love to the singer. However, they still haven’t said whether or not they actually like her new single.
Not only did Gaga clap back, but she has the surprising support of another singer: Halsey! She collaborated with The Chainsmokers on their hit song “Closer,” but she’s definitely Team Gaga in this argument. “Lady Gaga is an icon and forever one of my greatest idols. I can’t wait to see where her new era takes us. #JOANNE.”
Of course, Lady Gaga’s little monsters live for her, and as soon as she dissed the band, they all basically lost their minds and decided to have a little fun with The Chainsmokers. So they went ahead and started the hashtag #GagaEndedTheChainsmokersParty, where they mocked the duo for getting owned by the “Perfect Illusion” singer. Some fans were just having fun and realize that Lady Gaga was just playing with the band while others seem genuinely angry that the EDM pair dissed her in the first place.
Here are some of the best reactions:
