GAGA & KATY BURY THE HATCHET
The stars are friends again
Lady Gaga has reassured fans she and Katy Perry are closer than ever after newly released 2016 texts suggested they were not friends. Awks.
The correspondence between Gaga and Kesha, regarding
Katy’s refusal to confirm or deny abuse allegations levelled at her producer Dr. Luke, was released via court documents last week, prompting Gaga to quickly dismiss any suggestion that there was bad blood between herself and Katy.
“@katyperry & I have grown up in the industry together,” Gaga wrote. “We’ve gone through both celebrations & differences w/ each other. These are old texts. We’ve matured, gotten over the past, love each other & share deep respect. Katy is my friend and is truly a kind soul. End of story.”
Katy responded by tweeting: “Love you too friend. Onward and upward.”
In the text messages, Kesha told Gaga: “I’m really upset with Katy Perry... she could bring the whole thing to a head but she won’t,” referring to rumours suggesting Kesha’s former mentor, Luke, had assaulted Katy.
“She is probably really afraid to lose everything. U are really strong standing up to him, she’s not as strong as u yet,” Gaga replied, prompting Kesha to add: “your (sic) right. I need to nd sympathy and empathy for her. she’s so mean. it’s hard.”
Gaga shot back: “Do u want me to see if I can talk to her. I know she’s mean... She makes me angry about s**t (but) I just try to have empathy for her.”
Katy, who has always maintained she was never abused by Dr.
Luke, sat for a deposition with Kesha’s lawyers in 2015, and explained she never defended her former producer against Kesha’s allegations of abuse because she feared she would be seen as “the one woman that is against women and I’m not against women.”
Gaga tweeted her love for Katy after her 2016 texts to Kesha were released via court documents
