Lady Gaga Upsets Fans

Lady Gaga, who is usually adored and defended by fans, was recently the cause of their dismay after tweeting about a “fake Rolex.”

Check out her tweet this past week:
“I just landed in Bangkok baby! Ready for 50,000 screaming Thai monsters. I wanna get lost in a lady market and buy [a] fake Rolex,” the pop star wrote to her 24 million Twitter followers Wednesday May 23rd.

By the next day, there was a mini uproar in Thailand regarding that statement. Thailand fans called her remarks offensive and insulting. Lady Gaga was traveling there for her “The Born This Way Ball,” tour.

“We are more civilized than you think,” tweeted Thai DJ Surahit Siamwalla, who also called for a boycott of Gaga’s Friday show in Bangkok.

“She came to our home, but instead of admiring us, she insulted us,” read a comment on the popular Thai web board pantip.com.

Gaga’s preference for knock-offs was also made clear when the singer touched down in Hong Kong for a tour stop in April.
“I love this city,” she tweeted April 30 after reportedly indulging a spin class in the city famous for its high-end retail. “You can work out & buy a fake Birkin on the same street.”

It’s refreshing that she can admit to buying knock-offs, but at the same time, some things are better left unsaid. You can follow Lady Gaga on Twitter: @ladygaga
