Die Antwoord snub Lady Gaga

2012-03-13 13:07

Cape Town based zef-rap group Die Antwoord have blasted pop queen Lady Gaga.

They told the MTV news that Lady Gaga had invited them to join her tour, but they refused.

“Lady Gaga asked us to tour with her and we were like, um, no thanks,” said lead singer, Ninja.

They went on to claim that they left their previous record label, Interscope Records, because they tried to change them into a “shitty” pop group in the mould of Lady Gaga and Black Eyed Peas.

Lead singer Ninja was quoted saying: “I think they thought we were just like a weird, strange act, then like ‘Let’s just let them have their fun for a while, and then when it comes to their second album we’ll have them play games’.


“They were looking at Lady Gaga and The Black Eyed Peas and that type of shitty pop music, and were thinking we could like twist into that.”

The Cape Town rave-rap group also stated that they had nothing against pop music: “We like making pop music, but we like making hardcore music at the same time, mixing them, but they’ve got, like, soul. It’s not like weak, superficial shit. You know?”
