“I’ve met [Taylor] a few times, and I can’t say anything bad about her…when we were at the AMAs, she and I were sitting next to each other, and she goes ‘Oh my god, I love ARTPOP! Applause is my favorite song!’ And I was thinking ‘yeah, yeah, yeah, this chick is full of shit.’ But then my buddy called me, Brandon, who’s my stylist, and he was styling her for a shoot and he goes, ‘Taylor Swift is in here blasting ARTPOP so loud. She’s dancing, and she’s posing…” and I said to myself, ‘I like this girl.’ You know why? Because she said the same thing to my face that she said behind my back. So I like her.” —Lady Gaga on Taylor Swift
