Lady Gaga Claims Perez Hilton Is Stalking Her

Oh, Mother Monster, what have you gone and done now?

Hours before Lady Gaga took over New York for the premiere of her “Applause” video, the queen of all things theatrical in modern pop music made waves online for a story that has almost nothing whatsoever to do with her highly-anticipated new album.

It is no secret that Lady Gaga has been an object of obsession for members of the press since she debuted on the pop scene, but in recent months it has become clear that the over-the-top singer has grown tired of the constant attention. Now, upon learning that blogger Perez Hilton was looking at available apartments in the same NYC building she calls home, Gaga has taken to Twitter to vent her frustrations. Tweeting at Hilton over the weekend in a series of posts that have since been deleted, Gaga wrote:

“STAY AWAY FROM ME + MY FAMILY YOU ARE SICK TRYING TO RENT AN APARTMENT IN MY BUILDING TO STALK ME. LEAVE ME ALONE!!! DO I NEED TO BE SHOT IT IN THE HEAD FOR PEOPLE TO UNDERSTAND THAT HIM AND EVERYONE ELSE THAT HARASSES ME HAS GONE TOO FAR? IM A HUMAN BEING.”

Gaga’s outrage over Hilton’s perceived move to be constantly close to the pop singer did not take long to reach the blogger’s news feed, and just hours later Hilton posted a lengthy message to Gaga via his website addressing the claims. He wrote:

“I have long had plans to return to New York City more permanently. New York was my home for 6 years in the mid 90s, before I moved to Los Angeles. I also lived here for 3 months last year while doing an off Broadway show. I’m a new father and I am primarily focused on my family and where we will be most happy. I love New York and that is where me and my growing family want to call home right now. Sunday, my realtor showed us a list of possible apartments to rent. I learned only after the fact that Lady GaGa lives in one of the buildings we looked at, and she was across the country in Los Angeles when I viewed that building. After a day of innocent house-hunting, I am devastated and my heart hurts that my former very good friend, a person I used to call my “wifey” and traveled the world with, is making very public and very untrue allegations about me on Twitter. While it is still too painful for me to go into detail about why I chose to no longer make her a part of my life, I will say that I am a critic and not a “stalker”. Any allegation that I am stalking her, based on a day of house hunting with my baby boy and my mother, is utterly false, defamatory and now appears to be putting me and my family in danger. I will continue to be a critic – in a way that is not mean or involves name-calling, and I will continue to have an opinion and talk about music and songs, like GaGa’s “Applause”. I hope her fans stop sending me death threats, as the suggestion that I pose a danger to Lady GaGa is preposterous. If her fans want to send a message of support to Lady GaGa, they should buy her music. Notwithstanding my feelings about our personal relationship, I do wish Lady GaGa happiness and continued success and I assure you my family house hunting has nothing to do with her.”

As far as we know, Gaga has yet to further comment on the situation, but other members of the press continue to pry at Hilton for further comment. Here is a statement he gave to The Hollywood Reporter following the release of the blog post mentioned above:

“”My heart hurts that my former very good friend Lady GaGa, a person I used to call my ‘wifey’ and traveled the world with, is making very public and very untrue allegations about me on Twitter. While it is still too painful for me to go into detail about why I chose to no longer make her a part of my life, I will say that I am a critic and not a stalker.
