Lady Gaga Takes on Perez Hilton in New Blog Post … About Kindness

Lady Gaga (Getty Images)Sometimes, midway through a fight you have to change your strategy, and it seems Lady Gaga has a new battle plan.

In the wake of a flurry of nasty reports about her embittered Twitter war with ex-bestie Perez Hilton, the music heavyweight has written a new blog post reaffirming her commitment to "tolerance, acceptance, and kindness." (We can only assume that her definition of these things does not include publicly accusing former friends of being stalkers.)

"Sending threats of any kind, using hateful or abusive language, and the provoking of others on the internet is not supported by me or anything that I stand for," she states, likely referring to the alleged text message Perez sent her that showed her in a wheelchair with the word "karma" scribbled over it. "What I’ve seen transpiring is wrong and upsetting to me, and I’ve made it very clear how I feel about equality and compassion."

She continues, "I know how angry you feel sometimes, and I know that when they say things about me you feel that they are saying them about you as well." That would explain why so many of Gaga's fans reportedly sent Perez death threats after news of the feud broke.

But Gaga insists that that while she understands, that's still no excuse for bad behavior. "I ask you to take a pledge with me to continue the change toward positivity, and to recognize that this behavior is wrong," she writes before adding, "We are stronger than this. We know what we stand for, and what we stand for is bravery. I know this because what I see on the internet is not what I see at my shows. People deal with their insecurities in many different ways. The anonymous nature of social media has made it easy for many to vent their anger by bullying others with no recourse or accountability. But this is not a healthy way to handle your emotions."

Her call to action isn't only for her little monsters, however. "I also ask that Twitter and other social media platforms support this effort to monitor and control abusive and threatening language, as I don’t know that I am powerful enough to stop it myself," she explains.

She's probably right about her inability to stop all hateful messages from hitting the internet, but she should be able to curb a fair number of them: All she has to do is take her own advice.

Miley Cyrus v. Sinead O' Connor: To O'Connor, Cyrus's recent raunch in the clip for "Wrecking Ball" has crossed the line. In response, the singer penned a lengthy open letter to Cyrus. In it, she expressed concern for the effect of her stripped-down antics on her reputation and on the industry. Cyrus took to Twitter to issue her reply, comparing O'Connor's battle with mental illness to Amanda Bynes's - sparking a second, more impassioned letter from O'Connor shortly afterward. One of her remarks toward the former Disney star: "I hope that you will wake up and understand that you in fact are a danger to women." Yet again, Miley used Twitter as her soapbox to state: "Sinead. I don't have time to write you an open letter cause Im hosting & performing on SNL this week." And in a tweet that followed: "So if youd like to meet up and talk lemme know in your next letter. :)" less
