Gaga slams Die Antwoord over 'death'
Fri, 19 Oct 2012 4:21p.m.
A new pop feud has erupted between Lady Gaga and South African rap act Die Antwoord after the trio killed off a double of the pop superstar in its latest video.
A man dressed in Lady Gaga's infamous meat dress is ridiculed, massacred by African rebels and mauled to death by a lion in the promo for ‘Fatty Boom Boom’ - and the ‘Paparazzi’ hitmaker is far from amused.
In a post on her Twitter account on Wednesday, Gaga took aim at the provocative South Africans, writing, "i fink u freaky but you don't have a hit. hundred thousand tickets sold in SA. #thatsmyshit... i guess its not a good idea to tell someone you're a fan. never mind! we get it, you're not a little monster."
Die Antwoord quickly responded on their Twitter account, "lady... even tho u r 'larger' than us... we still cooler than u... plus we don't have prawns in our private...."
The final comment was a reference to a scene in the 'Fatty Boom Boom' video, in which a gynaecologist removes a prawn from the fake Gaga's genitals - presumably a joke about past stories suggesting the US singer is a hermaphrodite.
It is not clear why Die Antwoord took aim at Gaga in the video but bandmate Yo-Landi Vi$$er revealed earlier this year that she had turned down the chance to tour with the ‘Poker Face’ hitmaker.

They are both just stage acts, shes way over reacting, her fame isn't under a threat they both cater to different audiences, really she should just laugh it off, her videos aren't know for being serious either so what if they dont like her not everyone likes them either.
Their view of each other certainly isn't going to stop people from liking their music if its good.
