The Claws Are Out! We Try To Decipher The Lady Gaga And Perez Hilton Feud

We didn't think a Hollywood spat could beat Nicole and Paris' redonkulous argument, but then Lady Gaga and Perez Hilton engaged in a violent Twitter feud. Perez is blogging, tweeting and speaking to camera about the whole kerfuffle, while the mother monster is frantically launching tweets from her keyboard. The row is even more confusing than a Gaga music video, and it doesn't look like either camp is ready for a ceasefire.

To try and work out what on earth is going on we have compiled a timeline of the battle of 140 characters...

1. Perez Hilton was a Lady Gaga super fan

When Gaga started her 'Just Dance' revolution Perez Hilton was her number one fan, giving her publicity via gushing blogposts. They shared a love of lipstick and rainbow hair - Perez even dressed up as Gaga for Halloween in 2010. Seriously. We have the evidence below...

Then something went really, really wrong. The claws came out and the matchy matchy rainbow dressing stopped. There has been no word about why they fell out and Perez wrote: 'It is still too painful for me to go into detail about why I chose to no longer make her a part of my life.'

2. Perez said Gaga's new song sounds like Madonna's

Perez posted a video in which he said that her new single 'Applause' is 'so unrelatable. This song is all about her. It's a few steps backwards, I'm really disappointed.' He also said that it sounded like a Madonna track and he prefers Katy Perry's new work. Gaga responded by claiming that he had sent her nasty texts when she was confined to a wheelchair after her hip injury. She tweeted:

3. Lady Gaga accused Perez of stalking her...

On Sunday Perez was spotted flat hunting in her apartment building in New York. Lady Gaga was so panicked by the news that Mr Hilton was near her pad that she called security and asked her fans to go all Gossip Girl and tweet pictures of him over to her. She tweeted from LA 'STAY AWAY FROM ME + MY FAMILY YOU ARE SICK TRYING TO RENT AN APARTMENT IN MY BUILDING TO STALK ME. LEAVE ME ALONE!!!'

4. Perez Hilton released a statement entitled 'Lady Gaga's Lies'

5. In comes the cavalry...

The main problem with challenging Gaga to a Twitter battle is that she has 40 million followers and a legion of loyal fans ready to bite. Perez it might be a good idea to go into Twitter hiding A-SAP. He has received a bunch of abusive messages, including threats to kill his son and calls for him to die of AIDS. Gaga has given this advice to her fans...

But this has happened to Perez's Twitter...

6. Will they kiss and make up?

It has been suggested that the feud is one mighty publicity stunt to get us talking about Lady Gaga - her new video conveniently dropped today. Real or fake, we have a feeling that we will have to wait a while for a truce, as Perez tweeted this cryptic message:

We reckon a Twitter silence isn't on the cards. But remember guys, play nice...
