When it comes to her reaction to Fox’s broadcast of her American Idol performance Wednesday, Lady Gaga isn’t bothering putting on the p-p-p-p-p-poker face.
She’s just straight up annoyed.
The scene-stealing diva lashed out at Fox via Twitter, accusing the network of some shoddy editing work when it came to her much-heralded American Idol visit.
“FOX POORLY+AMATEURLY edited+cut my performance/musical arrangement on idol. Watch real version,” she wrote, prompting fans to go elsewhere for it.
Do not edit the Gaga.
The complete, more than six-minute version of Gaga doing “Alejandro,” which was cut down to under five by American Idol, can be seen here, thanks to Perez.
On one hand, five whole minutes of a pretaped performance left intact is still a lengthy segment for live TV. On the other hand, the results show is all filler.
Why have Gaga and her non-amputated leg on if you’re not going to air it in its full, awesome entirety? What pulse-pounding drama couldn’t be cut instead?
