Lady Gaga has warned her fans she will not "condone
anything" against Adele after a number of her Twitter followers posted
nasty messages about the British soul sensation's fuller figure.
The Chasing Pavements singer was recently reported to
have overtaken Gaga in worldwide music sales, officially selling one in every
10 records this year (2011).
The news did not sit well with some members of Gaga's
online following and they took to Twitter to take aim at Adele and bombard her
with jibes about her weight.
One cruel message read: "Confirmed: Gaga will not be
wearing her meat dress because she is afraid Adele will eat it."
The posts shocked Gaga, an anti-bullying campaigner, and
she promptly distanced herself from the online taunts, chastising the few fans
for their behaviour.
A representative for the Poker Face hitmaker stated,
"Lady Gaga does not approve of bullying anyone for their physical
appearance, it goes against everything she stands for. A tiny handful of fans
may be letting her down."
Lady Gaga also insists she is a massive fan of Adele and
has wished the Brit the best as she recovers from surgery on her vocal cords. She
tells BBC Radio 1, "I didn't speak to anyone in particular, but anyone who
would say anything negative about Adele, I wouldn't support. I love her
immensely. She's very sweet. We've exchanged emails about our mutual love.
"I wish her all the best for her recovery in her
vocals, and I can't wait to hear her new music. She's an amazing success in the
US and in the UK, and it's wonderful to see such strong women thriving in pop
music. I wouldn't condone anything against Adele."
In September (2011), Gaga called on US lawmakers to
outlaw bullying following the tragic suicides of a number of gay youths who had
come under attack for their sexual orientation. She tweeted, "Bullying
must become illegal. It is a hate crime."
You tell ‘em Gaga!
