What a tangled web the world of creativity continues to weave.
For, in what will be sure to have fans of Pop phenom Lady GaGa shaking their heads in disbelief, the performer has fired her long time creative director LaurieAnn Gibson and has sensationally replaced her with one of her students.
All the details below…
According to the Hollywood Reporter, GaGa and Gibson, who have been creative partners since the start of the vocalist’s career, began to experience a rift in their friendship when the choreographer reportedly admitted to using Madonna as inspiration for many of the ideas she handed GaGa.
This of course offended many in Germanotta’s support base who have years have tried to distance themselves from comparisons to the ‘Human Nature‘ performer.
As well as this, some reports indicate that the controversy surrounding the video for ‘Edge Of Glory‘ also played its part in influencing Germanotta’s decision to let Laurie Ann go.
When reports from the video’s set revealed that had creative differences had occurred between director Joseph Kahn (responsible for Britney Spears‘ ‘Toxic‘) and Ms. Gibson which led to one of his treatments being scrapped, GaGa fans took to Twitter to voice their criticism of her ,to which she told two naysayers:
“Listen u disrespectful f**k they had an issue on set I don’t lie!“
“Creative Changes happen always educate ignorant Monster’s!!!“
If any of these reports are accurate it would be fair to say that it was LaurieAnn’s attitude that cost her her job more than anything.
However, as the age old saying goes there are three sides to every story. In this case, it is GaGa’s side, Gibson’s side and the truth.
Now that she has been replaced by one of her own protegee’s Richard Jackson, who has been a staple in many of the singer’s videos, we wonder if Laurie will ever speak out on what really went down.
Because, as much as her Monsters may try to deny it, it is becoming apparent that many of the people GaGa started out with are continuing to be torn from her. From Pepper and Dina back in 2008, Rob Fusari in 2009 and now LaurieAnn in 2011.
Let’s hope that this is one trend that doesn’t continue.
