Lady Gaga Calls Perez Hilton "Fake" on Howard Stern, He Calls Her a "Real-Life Vampire"
Lady Gaga may deny having a feud with Madonna and Kelly Osbourne, but it seems her falling out with Perez Hilton is real. During a lengthy interview with Howard Stern on his radio show Tuesday, Nov. 12, the 27-year-old singer didn't hold back while explaining why her longtime friendship with the celebrity blogger came to an end in 2011.
"What happened was we were doing an interview . . . and in the middle of the interview he started asking me really terrible questions," Gaga revealed to Stern. "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. My friend had to come in and pull the camera out, they wouldn't turn the cameras off."
"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," she said. "And he's just mad that I don't want to hang out anymore. 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."
The "Applause" singer" claimed that following their argument, Hilton, 35, allegedly tried to move into the New York City apartment next to her.
"I freaked out so much about it because I have no rights," she said. "My sister [Natali] was sleeping there and it made me scared and upset. And then he lied and told everybody that he wasn't stalking me, but that next day -- after I asked him to leave me alone -- he put an offer in on two apartments in the building! Why do you need to live in my apartment? There's only one reason: to try to hurt me, or harass me, or blow yourself up," she said. "If you hate me, hate me from over there. Continue to fire away on your blog and your Twitter."
Tuning into Gaga's interview with Stern Tuesday, Hilton took to his Twitter account to respond to Gaga's claims. "@LadyGaga So you called ME fake on the @HowardStern this morning. Ha! Thanks for the laugh! Have you looked in the mirror lately??? xoxo," he wrote. "@LadyGaga And I was the one who pulled away from u after I realized what a real-life vampire you are! It's been your M.O. your whole career!"
The single dad also added, "@LadyGaGa Keep talking about me, though. I love the press!"
