Lady Gaga really wants to be a mermaid. The pop star’s latest style theme seems to be stemming from the ocean as she has been spotted on outings sporting lots of seashells in her hair like she just washed up on the shore. And let’s not forget her MTV Video Music Awards performance on Sunday where she performed her new single, Applause, while doing a number of costume changes, finally stripping down to nothing but shells covering up what needed to be covered for censor purposes. Needless to say, she seems to be a little mermaid and sea-obsessed, of late.
As Gaga gears up for her iTunes Festival performance, she has been deeming the appearance #SwineFest and prepping fans by telling them to bring items like seashells, seahorses and starfish. But this is starting to sound a little too similar to someone else’s underwater-themed bash…
Rapper Azealia Banks, known for her Twitter spats as much as she is known for her music, took it upon herself to call the pop star out on this. She tweeted a response to Gaga, saying “hmmmm sounds alot like Azealia Banks’ mermaid balls,” which was a theme of Banks’ from last year.
Gaga simply responded to Banks with this GIF, though:
But, in a slight defence of Gaga, mermaids aren’t necessarily a new obsession. And before Azealia Banks’ Fantasea mixtape and Mermaid Ball shows, Gaga was all dressed up as a mermaid in her 2011 music video for You and I…
And also this 2011 Visionaire Magazine cover…
And then again in this fashion video for You and I…
But you know who was the original and should really deserve all the mermaid credit?
