You know what I like about Twitter feuds that I also never understand? The comments the celebrities write are always so passive-aggressive that I can’t quite figure out how the other celebrity knows the comment is about them. Take for example the recent Twitter feud from Adam Levine of Maroon 5, and Lady Gaga of Lady Gaga (via E! News). First, Levine took to Twitter to write:
Ugh..recycling old art for a younger generation doesn’t make you an artist. It makes you an art teacher. I unabashedly love writing and performing pop music for both myself AND everyone around me. That’s It. It doesn’t need any extra sauce.
So, yeah. This could be about anybody in the business, really. I mean, who hasn’t heard a popstar talk about their “art”? However, this tweet from Levine was actually aimed at Lady Gaga, resulting in Gaga writing a response, saying:
uh oh guys the art police is here
“Art police.” Funny. Her refute is good. It’s short, concise, uses no proper punctuation or caps; and it’s super casual because Gaga didn’t even spell check it. She’s just like: “yeah, I’ll respond, but I’m kinda busy to get involved with this, so let me pump in out in 5 secs.”
And that could have been that… Yet Levine responded AGAIN, saying:
im NOT an artist. i sing in a band and i make music with my friends. while we’re at it we should call the grammar police.
The grammar police? Now who’s sounding like an art teacher? You can’t insult someone by saying they “teach” art, and then create a comeback that alludes to someone’s bad grammar; something that is just so quintessentially a “teacher” quality. It’s a contradiction in Levine’s argument, that makes Gaga win this edition of Tweet Fighter!
Best part: Gaga has yet to respond to this comment, and if she doesn’t, she takes a double win by being officially “over it.”
