A new Lana Del Rey track has emerged online, featuring lyrics that blatantly slam Lady Gaga!
The new track ‘So Legit’ sounds like an unfinished demo, but you can definitely recognise Del Rey’s vocal drawl. Given that this has leaked onto the internet, and is potentially a few years old, perhaps this doesn't reflect Lana's current feelings on Gaga?
In the song, Lana sings "Stefani (Lady GaGa's real name), you suck, I know you're selling twenty million Wish they could have seen you when we booed you off in Williamsburg. You're looking like a man, you're talking like a baby."
Lady Gaga's former friend releasing tell-all book about her cocaine habit
Since the song hit the internet yesterday, Little Monsters have flooded Lana Del Rey’s social media account with hate mail. While we do not condone hateful behaviour of any kind, we understand why they are upset!
So what beef does LDR have with Gaga? We know they worked under the same manager back in the day... Was it worth writing a song about her hate?
Check out the hurtful lyrics below!
You were the freak king of the piercing shop
All the girls thought they could sing, but they're really not shit
I don't get it
You're looking like a man, you're talking like a baby
How the fuck is your song in a Coke commercial, crazy?
I don't get it
Your taste once exquisite
What happened to Brooklyn, what happened to New York?
What happened to my scene, what happened to punk rock, rock?
You called me the queen of the downtown scene, babe
How the fuck would you go switch it up and then replace me?
I don't get it, I'm so legit
Tell me, was it ’cause I wasn't platinum in jewels?
That perhaps you thought I was a little bit even uncool
Kid, was that it?
Stefani, you suck, I know you're selling twenty million
Wish they could have seen you when we booed you off in Williamsburg
You're hurt, I know my words don't hurt, yeah
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
What happened to Brooklyn, the last frontier?
They said you could make it anywhere if you can make it here
But where, no magic in the air
What happened to Brooklyn, what happened to our scene, baby?
Have we all gone Gaga crazy?
Remember when the streets used to be dangerous and we were born bad
And we were born bad?
Punk rock, punk rock
The boys used to punch each other in the face and girls were walking around wasted
And everyone had a good night, come back in sunlight
Punk rock, rock, rock
