Revealed today in Lady Gaga's most recent column for V Magazine, Gaga boldly calls out some questionable remarks made in the past by New York Time's fashion critic, Cathy Horyn.
Gaga writes..."In the age of the Internet, when collections and performances are so accessible to the public and anyone can post a review on Facebook or Twitter, shouldn’t columnists and reviewers, such as Cathy Horyn, employ a more modern and forward approach to criticism, one that separates them from the average individual at home on their laptop?"
She then goes on to say...“The reality of today’s media is that there are no echelons, and if they’re not careful, the most astute and educated journalists can be reduced to gossipers,” then going on to praise teenage blogging phenomenon Tavi Gevinson.
Why is this low blow being aimed at the NYT columnist one might ask? Likely because Horyn has made some rude comments about Gaga's fashion in the past. Particularly one remark made about Gaga's choice of costume in her "Edge of Glory" video, where she is clothed in Versace taken out of archive from Gianni Versace's final collection.
Horyn wrote..."She looked embalmed in the black Versace harness (apparently from Gianni Versace’s final collection), and I don’t know why Donatella Versace said she was honored by Gaga’s selection, unless, of course, she thought she had to say something nice about the superstar. But a D.O.A. video doesn’t help the House of Versace. Be choosier, Ms. Versace."
That wasn't enough for Cathy Horyn. Afterwards it was reported that Horyn ceased following Lady Gaga on Twitter. Your thoughts on the dispute? Let myself and the rest of the FWU know your thoughts about the catfight.
