Lady Gaga Responds to Osbournes Again: “The Real World Can Be Cruel”


By Michael Lewittes



Lady Gaga is responding again in her ongoing feud with Kelly Osbourne and her mom Sharon. In a Facebook post on Saturday night directed at the Osbournes, Gaga said she was speaking up once more because because “the ‘real world’ can be cruel,” and “as a youth activist I’m compelled to be involved.”

As you recall, the bad blood between Gaga and the Osbournes dates back to last year when Kelly criticized her for skipping the Grammys red carpet, and was subsequently barraged with nasty tweets from the singer’s fans. Gaga’s fans then ripped the “Fashion Police” personality again last fall when she made a comment about the singer’s much talked-about weight gain. And on Thursday, Gaga posted an open letter to Kelly on in which she blasted her “Fashion Police” work as “rooted in criticism, judgment, and rating people’s beauty against one another.”

Sharon then got into the mix and responded with her own open letter on Facebook in which she called Gaga and a “bully,” and implored her to “stop using your fans to belittle not just Kelly but an endless stream of celebrities. A word from you would stop all the hideous, negative and vile threats from your ‘little monsters.’” But that didn’t end it.

On Saturday, Gaga posted on her Facebook page, “The ‘real world’ can be cruel, why not try to change it into a better place? I am an activist. Nobody takes adolescents seriously, I do. My letter to Kelly Osbourne was open, because her statements on cyber-bulling were public & as a youth activist I’m compelled to be involved.”
