Gaga, Die Antwoord slug it out on Twitter

2012-10-19 00:00

CAPE TOWN — Lady Gaga and Die Antwoord are locked in a war of words on Twitter.

The zef rap group released their new music video Fatty Boom Boom on Tuesday in which they take a stab at the fact that they turned Lady Gaga down when she asked them to open for her earlier this year.

Die Antwoord’s Fatty Boom Boom video shows “Lady Gaga”, played by a male actor, in her infamous meat dress as she gets a minibus taxi tour of downtown Joburg. She spots Die Antwoord’s Ninja and Yo-Landi Vi$$er getting ready for a street performance, remarking that “they should open for me”.

When her tourbus is hijacked, Gaga escapes and roams the streets of Joburg, alone and afraid, until she comes across a seedy gynaecologist’s office and gets a particularly invasive examination.

Lady Gaga tweeted her feelings on the video on Wednesday:

“Lady Gaga : @ladygaga i fink u freaky but you don’t have a hit. hundred thousand tickets sold in SA.”

Soon after, Die Antwoord hit back: “Die Antwoord : @DieAntwoord lady … even tho u r ‘larger’ than us … we still cooler than u … plus we don’t have prawns in our private …”

Lady Gaga has more than 30 million followers, Die Antwoord has 80 000 followers. — Channel24.
