Lady Gaga Slams Katy Perry On Twitter For Copying Ideas In Her 'Prismatic' Tour

Lady Gaga has seemingly hit out at fellow popstar Katy Perry on Twitter, after similarities emerged between Katy’s ‘Prismatic’ tour and one of Gaga’s earlier stage shows.

Katy kicked off her most recent tour - in support of her third album ‘Prism’ - earlier this week in Belfast, with an elaborate show that saw her donning a series of colourful wigs and at one point taking to the stage atop a mechanical horse to perform her single ‘Dark Horse’.

However some of Gaga’s die-hard fans - nicknamed ‘little monsters’ by the singer - were less than impressed when pictures from Katy’s opening night emerged online, claiming that her mechanical horse was a rip-off of their idol’s stage entrance from her ‘Born This Way Ball’ tour.

It seems the comparisons didn’t go unnoticed by Gaga herself, either, who took to her Twitter to suggest she wasn’t happy with Katy’s show.

She tweeted on Thursday night:

Oof. The shade.

This isn’t the first time there’s been a bit of tension between the two singers, though, as when Gaga’s controversial ‘Alejandro’ video - which paired heavy Catholic imagery with sexualised choreography - Katy, whose parents are pastors, tweeted:

Of course, Lady Gaga is no stranger to a ‘copycat’ controversy, having been the target of Madonna fans after her single ‘Born This Way’ was released in 2011 and it was alleged she’d copied the song’s chorus from Madge’s earlier hit ‘Express Yourself’.

The diva even weighed in on the controversy herself during an interview with Cynthia McFadden for ABC News, where she slammed Gaga’s hit single, branding it “reductive”.

She even referred to the controversy during her 2012 ‘MDNA’ tour, where she performed a mash-up of ‘Express Yourself’ and ‘Born This Way’ before really sticking the (bejeweled, high-heeled) boot in and adding a few lines from her song ‘She’s Not Me’.

Whoever’s side you’re on in this argument, we think there are going to be some angry fan debates on Twitter pretty soon…
