Lady Gaga on feud with Perez Hilton: “I really believed, when I first met him, that he wanted to change”
Lady Gaga appeared on The Howard Stern Show and did a lengthy interview.
Among the topics was her falling out with former close friend Perez Hilton.
Here is her side of the story:
“What happened was we were doing an interview — I took two days out of my schedule when I was on a world tour to do an interview for him … and in the middle of the interview he started asking me really terrible questions and he was being very negative about ‘Born This Way’ and we had had a lot to drink. He was supposed to be my friend and I felt betrayed, so I started crying. And then my friend had to come in and pull the camera out, they wouldn’t turn the cameras off…And then he apologized, but I sort of felt like it was like, ‘But I’m Perez Hilton so I’m allowed to treat you this way.’ I looked at him and said, ‘Just because you are who you are, does not mean that our friendship doesn’t mean anything when the cameras turn on. So, now I see who you really are.’ And I was done after that. And he’s just mad that I don’t want to hang out anymore because I don’t want to be around fake people. I really believed, when I first met him, that he wanted to change. I really believed that he wanted to bully people less on his site and that he wanted to move into a more positive space. I was really there for him and I really supported him.”
