Mermaid Gaga vs. Mermaid Katy
Ah, the great mermaid debate of 2011.
In a prime example of Lady Gaga’s abilities to conjure headlines out of thin air, Mother Monster engaged in a half-hearted feud with fellow pop diva Katy Perry over which of them was the world’s best singing mermaid. The trouble began when Perry posted a TwitPic of herself planking in a mermaid costume on the set of her upcoming video. This was outrageous because, earlier that same week, Gaga had announced her plans to pose as a mermaid in the video for “You and I,” which recently debuted.
As it turns out, no one cared and the feud died off.—Jeff Royer
