Move over, Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey – there’s a new feud brewing in the music world.

On Wednesday, Lady Gaga lashed out at Die Antwoord after the South African rap group released its music video for “Fatty Boom Boom.”

What’s Gaga’s problem with the clip?

One of its characters bears a strong resemblance to Mother Monster. In fact, the look-alike wears a meat dress very similar to the outfit Gaga wore two years ago at the MTV Video Music Awards.

In the video, the meat dress-wearing star visits a gynecologist, gets a nasty procedure and afterward, gets eaten by a lion — all while the group delivers its signature Zef-style rhymes.

 

While the outrageous and very NSFW storyline is nothing out of the ordinary for Die Antwoord, Gaga gave her own review of the video on Twitter.

“i fink u freaky but you don’t have a hit. hundred thousand tickets sold in SA,” she wrote, referring to the group’s single “I Fink U Freaky” and her upcoming sold-out shows in South Africa.

But Die Antwoord seems to have no problem with the video or its lookalike subject. After Gaga’s Twitter comments, the group responded with the following:

 

Since premiering on YouTube on Tuesday, “Fatty Boom Boom” has received more than 1.8 million views. Lady Gaga’s Born This Way ball, meanwhile, hits Johannesburg on Nov. 30, followed by a show in Cape Town Dec. 3.
