Shots fired! After Katy Perry kicked off her “Prismatic World Tour” with a few daring looks — and a mechanical horse — her pop singer rival took to Twitter to throw out some plagiarism accusations. So whose side are you on — Katy’s or Lady Gaga’s?
Oh Lady Gaga, you’re such a trendsetter, and no one can ever do anything similar to you. Katy Perry started her “Prismatic World Tour” in Belfast, Northern Ireland on May 7 with a bang — rocking fluorescent green hair and taking the stage on a decked out Egyptian-inspired horse. But since Gaga has dyed her hair green before, and also ridden a mechanical horse, she decided to take a shot at Katy for stealing her ideas.
Lady Gaga Disses Katy Perry
Gaga kept her tweet short, but the diss was still pretty thinly-veiled:
It looks like green hair and mechanical horses are the thing now 👀

For the record, Lady Gaga has had her hair dyed an emerald shade of green since 2011. And she also made a grand entrance on the red carpet of the 2013 American Music Awards on a mechanical white horse. So it seems pretty clear that Gaga was bothered to see Katy riffing on some things she’s done in the past.
I have a hard time agreeing with the Lady though. Just because she dyed her hair green doesn’t mean no one can ever do it again without being labeled a copycat. Also, that guy in Green Day has been dying his hair green since the ’90s. So Lady Gaga, aren’t you copying him?
I will admit that the mechanical horse thing is a little more unique to Gaga, and Katy may have been a bit inspired by her pop star counterpart. But even still, Katy’s Egyptian-style horse took the idea in a completely different direction. Lady Gaga may have been the first, but that doesn’t mean that no one can try to make the idea their own in the future. It happens all the time in the music world.
Lady Gaga Hates Being Compared To Katy Perry
Gaga may just be a little sensitive because she and Katy have been compared to each other before. The two singers were being paired together after their songs “Applause” and “Roar” came out on the same day in August 2013, and Gaga was also quick to distance herself from Katy in that instance as well.
“I don’t know what the f**k-all I have to do with Katy Perry… Our music is so completely different. I couldn’t be more different, really,” Gaga shouted to the crowd at her concert at the Austin Convention Center in Texas on March 14.
So what do you think, HollywoodLifers? Was Katy copying Lady Gaga? Did she deserved to be dissed? Let us know!
