Recently, “open letters” have been flying back and forth between Lady Gaga and Sharon Osbourne because of a series of Twitter occurrences that happened a few months ago, where Sharon’s foul-mouthed daughter, Kelly Osbourne, was “attacked” by Gaga’s fan base for some rude comments she made about the star.
You can read more about the letters here.
One thing that stood out to me in Sharon’s letter (amidst the glaring hypocrisies and childish insults) was when she basically said that not only does Gaga control her fans, but she encourages their bad behavior.
Apparently, there’s a need to point out that this is untrue. I have to point this out because several news outlets and various other celebrities and other severely bothered fan bases of other pop stars are quite adamant in their belief that Gaga can control her fans. She has a unique and enormous fan base and just because she groups them together and calls them “Little Monsters” does not negate their individuality. Her fan base is made up of millions of people who all love her, but think very differently from one another.
