Who knew that there was bad blood between pop singers Lana Del Rey and Lady Gaga? Apparently, Lana Del Rey may be a little bitter of the success of her old friend Stefani (Lady Gaga). On July 23rd, a demo called “So Legit” leaked online with lyrics aimed at the “Born This Way” singer.
According to Digital Spy, the track was recorded a few years ago when the two shared the same manager. During that time, Gaga was rising in the music industry with her album The Fame, while Del Rey didn’t become a household name until late 2011.
In the lyrics of the demo, Del Rey seems to recall her days in New York with Gaga and flat out disses her. “Stefani, you suck, I know you’re selling twenty million. Wish they could have seen you when we booed you off in Williamsburg.”
You can also sense the bitterness as she sings, “Oh, girl, I see you walking ’round in your pearls, thinking that you’re number one. You’re so funny, ’cause honey, you’re not.”
The friendship, if any, between the two pop stars has been unclear over the years. Just last year, it was reported that the two had a sleepover with Lindsay Lohan. It’s an odd trio, if you ask me, but no pictures of all three of them ever surfaced. Then, later in the year, Lady Gaga even said in a video chat with fans that Lana Del Rey would be featured in her anticipated upcoming album ARTPOP. But this year, when asked by a fan if Lana would collaborate with the “Telephone” singer, she simply replied, “Um, I don’t know…not today.”
Neither of the pop stars has commented on the leaked demo. But Little Monsters (Lady Gaga fans) and Gangsters (Lana Del Rey fans) have been at each other’s throats defending their respective pop stars. Let’s just say, the Little Monsters are going hard. Either way, both have made a name for themselves. They’ve come a long way, so if there is still bitterness hanging around, we hope it gets resolved soon.
