Lady Gaga - Lady Gaga Blasts Artpop Critics

Pop superstar Lady Gaga has accused music critics of slating her album Artpop because they failed to understand its concept.

The Poker Face singer scored a chart hit with the record last year (13), but sales quickly dropped off after its release and it received mixed reviews from critics, many of whom gave it unfavourable write-ups.

Gaga has now responded to an article posted on Breitbart.com, titled 'Five Reasons Why Lady Gaga's Artpop Flopped', arguing that critics just didn't understand what she was trying to achieve.

In response to an extract of the article re-posted on her Littlemonsters.com website, which branded the album "too long" and full of "b-sides", the singer writes, "I don't understand critics but here's why: would you critic a dance show if you were not yourself a dancer? Would you critic an English paper if you did not speak English? Or a French paper if you don't speak French? Don't let these things bother you, because the concepts of Artpop I spent a lot of time and research a love on. By everybody (sic) will understand it, it operates in a place of love that sees the world as unified. It is simply a pleasurable experience for you to access if you choose. I don't believe that we are divided as people. If you criticise others you criticise yourself."

Gaga previously accused critics of trying to destroy her career after her comeback single Applause failed to replicate the success of her previous chart hits.
