Die Antwoord blasts Lady Gaga in outrageous new "Fatty Boom Boom" video
Apparently one does not simply invite Die Antwoord to be one's opening act on a major arena-headlining tour. At least not without consequences, as Lady Gaga has discovered.
Back in March, the South African rap crew was telling anyone who would listen that its former label, Interscope, had approached it with the opportunity to open for Gaga, who is apparently a Die Antwoord fan. The admiration is clearly not mutual. Yo-Landi Vi$$er and Ninja turned the offer down, and the latter explained his decision by saying that Die Antwoord's music is not "weak, superficial shit".
This was evidently not all he had to say on the matter, as the new video for "Fatty Boom Boom" makes clear. There's a Lady Gaga look-alike in it, but that's as much as I'm going to say. Wouldn't want to give away any spoilers. Watch it below.
Gaga's response, via Twitter (see above), has been relatively restrained so far, with the Mother Monster merely noting that her ticket sales in South Africa have been just fine without Die Antwoord on the bill.
