Lana del Rey and Lady Gaga used to share the same manager, but apparently that connection wasn't enough to sustain their relationship. Rey wrote a hate song a while back directed at Gaga, “So Legit,” and it just leaked onto the Internet a couple of days ago. YouTube has since taken it down at the request of Universal Music Group, but Gaga defender Perez Hilton has preserved it so you can hear (and read) it for yourself below. The juxtaposition of sweet sounds and hateful lyrics certainly makes for an interesting listening experience.
Lady Gaga’s fans (“Little Monsters”) are, of course, freaking out on Rey via Twitter and Facebook, but Gaga herself has yet to respond.
You were the freak king of the piercing shop
All the girls thought they could sing, but they're really not shit
I don't get it
You're looking like a man, you're talking like a baby
How the fuck is your song in a Coke commercial, crazy?
I don't get it
Your taste once exquisite
What happened to Brooklyn, what happened to New York?
What happened to my scene, what happened to punk rock, rock?
You called me the queen of the downtown scene, babe
How the fuck would you go switch it up and then replace me?
I don't get it, I'm so legit
Tell me, was it ’cause I wasn't platinum in jewels?
That perhaps you thought I was a little bit even uncool
Kid, was that it?
Stefani, you suck, I know you're selling twenty million
Wish they could have seen you when we booed you off in Williamsburg
You're hurt, I know my words don't hurt, yeah
Oh, girl, I see you walking ’round in your pearls
Thinking that you're number one
You're so funny, ’cause honey, you're not
What happened to Brooklyn, the last frontier?
They said you could make it anywhere if you can make it here
But where, no magic in the air
What happened to Brooklyn, what happened to our scene, baby?
Have we all gone Gaga crazy?
Remember when the streets used to be dangerous and we were born bad
And we were born bad?
Punk rock, punk rock
The boys used to punch each other in the face and girls were walking around wasted
And everyone had a good night, come back in sunlight
Punk rock, rock, rock
