Things seem to be heating up (or finally cooling off) between Lady Gaga and The Chainsmokers.

Things seem to be heating up (or finally cooling off) between Lady Gaga and The Chainsmokers.


In a recent Rolling Stone profile, Alex Pall, one member of the rising DJ duo, proclaimed, “It sucks,” when referring to the song. His partner-in-crime Drew Taggart was softer, calling Gaga ” a great artist.”

The ‘Bad Romance’ singer has yet to respond to the comment until earlier today, when she tweeted her new song ‘A- YO’ at The Chainsmokers. “maybe u guys’ll like this 1 better,” she wrote.

Apparently, The Chainsmokers can’t keep their calm and they amicably responded to Gaga’s tweet. “Haha @ladygaga RESPECT,” the duo said followed by a peace sign emoji.

Gaga supporters are now trending #GagaEndedTheChainsmokersParty on Twitter.

Earlier, singer Halsey, who has topped the charts in the U.K. and U.S. with the DJ duo's hit Closer, made it clear she doesn't have a bad word to say about the singer by tweeting, "Lady Gaga is an icon and forever one of my greatest idols. I can't wait to see where her new era takes us. #JOANNE."

Lady Gaga replied by with kiss on the cheek and peace sign emojis and thanking her for the praise, adding, "We can make it easy if we lift each other! thanks for the shoutout!" causing Halsey to start "freaking out".

Alex's bandmate Andrew Taggert then reportedly called the singer "a bald b**ch" under her tweets to Gaga and Halsey unfollowed him, but he has since declared his account was hacked and he would "NEVER tweet anything like that to one of my friends."

Gaga’s new song ‘A-YO’ follows the release of first single ‘Perfect Illusion’ and last week’s release of second single ‘Million Reasons’.

Her fifth studio effort, which is titled ‘Joanne’, will feature 11 tracks on its standard edition and 14 on the deluxe version. The ‘Joanne’ track listing is as follows:


‘Joanne’ standard edition:

Diamond Heart



John Wayne

Dancin’ In Circles

Perfect Illusion

Million Reasons

Sinner’s Prayer

Come To Mama

Hey Girl’ (feat. Florence Welch)

Angel Down


‘Joanne’ deluxe edition bonus tracks:

‘Grigio Girls’

‘Just Another Day’

‘Angel Down (Work Tape)’


‘Joanne’ drops on October 21 and the singer will promote it with an appearance on James Corden’s enormously popular Carpool Karaoke segment. The singer announced that she and Corden had filmed earlier this month, but it is not known yet when it will air.
