It appears that not everyone is a fan of ubiquitous pop chameleon and shock-merchant Lady Gaga.
Case in point: Anna ‘just one look and you’re zapped’ Wintour.
The Vogue editor-in-chief is apparently not a fan. She thinks Gaga is “a childish diva”.
Gaga and Wintour met back in May when she performed at Anna’s Metropolitan Museum Costume Institute Gala.
Maureen Callahan, author of biography Poker Face: The Rise and Rise of Lady Gaga, claims: “She (Lady GaGa) sort of had a meltdown before she went on and as it was described to me, Anna was really none too pleased with her.”
She added: “Anna wasn’t impressed. She thought she was just behaving like a childish diva and not the professional who was about to perform for her peers; these incredibly famous designers and celebrities.
“She sequestered herself in the back room for a good hour. She was late to perform and I also heard that she had been demanding things. She went to Anna at the last minute and was saying, ‘I’d like it to be this way.’
“And Anna just said no. I don’t think she’s used to hearing that very often. When you’re dealing with two egos like that, it gets interesting.”
Ice-maiden Wintour recently recounted the encounter to US chat show host Jimmy Fallon: “We had Lady GaGa this year. She was communing with God and she was praying in the back, waiting for God to tell her it was alright to go actually onstage.”
Is Gaga getting too big for her mile-high stillies?
I hear that Gaga has just signed a deal with Coty Inc. to release a line of fragrances in her name.
The first of women’s scents is due to hit shelves in 2012.
