Lady Gaga defends Adele over fat jibes
Washington: Lady Gaga has warned her fans that she would not “condone anything” against Adele, after few of her Twitter followers posted nasty messages about the British singer’s fuller figure.
The ‘Rolling in the deep’ hitmaker was recently reported to have overtaken Gaga in worldwide music sales, officially selling one in every 10 records this year.
The news did not sit well with some members of Gaga’s online following and they took to Twitter to take aim at Adele and bombard her with jibes about her weight.
“Confirmed: Gaga will not be wearing her meat dress because she is afraid Adele will eat it,” tweeted a follower.
The posts stunned the ‘Poker Face’ hitmaker and she promptly expressed her disappointment and distanced herself from the online taunts.
“Lady Gaga does not approve of bullying anyone for their physical appearance, it goes against everything she stands for. A tiny handful of fans may be letting her down,” Contactmusic quoted Gaga’s representative as telling Bbc Radio 1.
Gaga insists she is a massive fan of Adele and has wished the Brit the best as she recovers from surgery on her vocal cords.
“I didn’t speak to anyone in particular, but anyone who would say anything negative about Adele, I wouldn’t support. I love her immensely. She’s very sweet. We’ve exchanged emails about our mutual love,” she said.
“I wish her all the best for her recovery in her vocals, and I can’t wait to hear her new music. She’s an amazing success in the U.S. and in the U.K., and it’s wonderful to see such strong women thriving in pop music. I wouldn’t condone anything against Adele,” she added.
