Despite sharing a label in Jimmy Iovine‘s Interscope and an alleged former manager in Bob Leone, it seems there was a time that Lady GaGa and Lana Del Rey were anything but kindred spirits.
For, in a track recorded in 2009 named ‘So Legit’, Rey takes a wicked aim at the heart of GaGa’s cause, referring to an incident which Lana claims saw she and friends boo the Pop icon during a performance in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
A hardcore Lana below…
‘You’re looking like a man, you’re talking like a baby
‘How the f**k is your song in a Coke commercial, crazy?
‘I don’t get it, Your taste once exquisite’
‘You called me the queen of the downtown scene, babe
‘How the f**k 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, 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’
Quite interestingly, audio of ‘Legit’ is no longer available to enjoy- pulled down two days after it surfaced online.
