Lily Allen Backtracks on Lady Gaga Dig

/ August 11, 2010

Lily Allen should probably have learned from M.I.A. that you don’t mess with Lady Gaga without incurring the wrath of her army of Little Monsters.

The “Not Fair” singer attempted to make a funny at the “Alejandro” songbird’s expense while performing at this year’s Big Chill festival in England, after an over-zealous fan tossed a potato at her onstage. Presumably referencing the rumors that Gaga is a hermaphrodite, Allen reportedly quipped,

“Somebody threw this potato at me. It says, ‘Show me your penis.’ They must have mistaken me for Lady Gaga.”

Allen’s attempt at humor was met with a frosty reception by the Big Chill crowd of approximately 30,000, prompting her to clarify that she was “only joking.” But that apparently didn’t satisfy Gaga’s worldwide legion of fans, because Allen was forced to once again issue a mea culpa via her Twitter account, noting,

“Everyone knows I am Lady Gaga’s biggest fan. So don’t believe the bull****. I’m a little monster and NO OnE can take that away from me !”

Perhaps Allen’s attitude is already being softened by her impending motherhood.

What do you think? Did Allen need to apologize, or did people make too much of a lame joke? Let us know in the comments section.
