Gaga’s newest album Joanne arrives Friday. She will also be Saturday Night Live‘s musical guest this weekend.
The Chainsmokers attempt to clear the air with Lady Gaga
In an interview last year with Rolling Stone, Alex Pall of The Chainsmokers didn’t mince words when issuing his assessment of Lady Gaga‘s single, “Perfect Illusion.” “It sucks,” Pall bluntly stated. Even with the more diplomatic on of the two, Drew Taggart, stating “She’s a great artist,” the superstar EDM duo faced a firestorm of criticism, mostly from Gaga fans, but also from the queen of pop herself.
Enter Gaga with her latest track, “A-YO,” which premiered June 6. Gaga sent out a slew of tweets promoting the track — one of which was directed at The Chainsmokers, asking them light-heartedly (presumably?) whether her newest track met their standards.
Interestingly, on the same day as Gaga’s new single releases, The Chainsmokers went on air with Howard Stern to discuss a range of topics, including the original incendiary comment from last October, with Pall stating that it “came out so much worse” than intended.
Pall elaborated, “I’m 32 now and no one’s given a shit about what I’ve said for the first 30 years of my life…I felt bad because I don’t think it’s cool to make those sort of judgements [in public] anyway. Like, keep it to yourself.”
