Lady Gaga has slammed the hackers who leaked a clip her upcoming single “Applause,” and expressed solidarity with Katy Perry, whose own “Roar” surfaced online ahead of schedule this weekend.

In a series of tweets on Saturday and Sunday, the singer and forest nudist expressed disappointment and anger over a portion of “Applause” popping up on various music sites before its release.

Gaga tweeted, “Lord, in HEAVEN WHY… YOU JUST COULDNT WAIT THIS IS TOO MUCH FOR ONE SATURDAY.” She then veered into the audiophile aspect of her ARTPOP rollout, writing, “Now its not that we HATE computer speakers its just they’re not as HQ. We spent time actually making sure it sounds good in sh*t speakers.”

Gaga next made a relatively rare overture to her fellow pop superstar. “Wanna grab some shovels and f*ck up some hackers? @katyperry excited to hear your ROAR, sorry to hear about your truck!” wrote Gaga, referring to Perry’s Prism album promotional bus being struck by a drunk driver in Pennsylvania on Friday. She was not done venting.

On Sunday, Gaga addressed some haters in the media, tweeting, “Dont focus on ANY blogger criticism. I have been a producer/songwriter/musician for over 10 years. Trust the artist bloggers are not critics.” She added, “The fans + music scholars are the best critics because they know the artist intimately. #STOPHarassingTheArtist we are here to entertain you.”

Gaga had one more message to deliver. She announced, “Let’s make 2013 a year where music/talent/artistry is more important than gossip/fanwars I respect all fanbases 4 their passion #BeTheChange.” Perry re-tweeted Gaga’s sentiments. What do you think of what Gaga said?
