The Voice coach and Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine has never been one to mince words, but his surprise Twitter feud with Lady Gaga was, well, surprising.

He recently tweeted about an unidentified artist: "Ugh… recycling old art for a younger generation doesn't make you an artist. It makes you an art teacher."

"I unabashedly love writing and performing pop music for both myself AND everyone around me. That's It. It doesn't need any extra sauce."

Lady Gaga, presuming this was about her, responded:

"uh oh guys the art police is here."

Miley Cyrus has at least two big names in her corner.

Father Billy Ray Cyrus spoke out in defense of her "God-given talent" in the wake of Miles' controversies of late, and now Lady Gaga has her back as well.

With the Miley Cyrus "Wrecking Ball" video still the talk of the web, Gaga was asked about the young star on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live.

Gaga's take on this? No one's forcing you to watch Miley!

"I mean, I think everybody needs to lighten up and leave her alone. Because it's pop music. Everybody's entitled to their own artistic expression.

"If you have a problem with it, just change the channel."

Lady Gaga kicked off the month-long iTunes Festival yesterday with live, theatrical performances of seven songs from her upcoming album ARTPOP.

The highly anticipated Gaga show included the debut of "Jewels & Drugs," a trap-like tune featuring rappers T.I. (via satellite), Too $hort and Twista:

As if her opening set at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards wasn't proof enough, Mother Monster made sure the world knew she was back on Sunday.

While "Jewels & Drugs" saw Lady Gaga dip into her previously unheard rap diva mode, the throbbing pop of "Sex Dreams" felt a bit more familiar.

As she crooned about sharing her most intimate, detailed nighttime desires, she took off her wig and revealed the woman behind all the disguises.

Gaga encouraged her fans to do the same. "I knew I had to show you what's underneath all of the theater," said the pop superstar, a natural brunette.

Check out her "Sex Dreams" and "ARTPOP" performances after the jump ...

Lady Gaga's recent foray into mermaid attire isn't going over well with at least one person. Azealia Banks is not happy, claiming Mother Monster jacked her style.

Gaga's VMA shell bikini, various barnacle-chic street outfits and Twitter instructions to her fans have made her newfound love of the mermaid theme clear.

Only Banks says it's her theme Gaga is copping when she lists "acceptable attire" for her fans at the iTunes Festival as "1: Seashells. Item 2: Seahorses 3: Starfish" and so on.

The rapper writes:

  1. @ladygaga hmmmm sounds alot like Azealia Banks' mermaid balls.
  2. Of COURSE gaga wants to play mermaid again..... Pffft.
  3. Not picking a fight. Just all looks soo familiar.... To me.

Lady Gaga has offered her Little Monsters a sneak preview of her new song "Swine" as she rehearsed for the iTunes Festival in London Sunday.

Gaga tweeted the link to a video of her singing, playing the drums and playing the keyboard on her official YouTube page. Check it out right here:

"I know you want me. You're just a pig in a human's body," the 27-year-old croons in one lyric. "Squealer, squealer, squeal out! You're so disgusting."

"You're just a pig inside. Swine."

If she were Taylor Swift, we'd immediately be guessing who she could be talking about. Okay, we still are, but the options are less obvious and numerous.
