Lady Gaga recently tweeted:
It looks like green hair and mechanical horses are the thing now

Lady Gaga appears to be snarking about Katy Perry’s new Prismatic Tour, during which Katy Perry rides out at one point on a mechanical horse. Lady Gaga also rode a mechanical horse on the red carpet at the American Music Awards a few months ago. Katy Perry has also been rocking some pretty cool “slime green” hair that we’ve written about before, while Lady Gaga staked her claim on the color back in December. (For her part, Katy Perry says she got the idea for the slime green hair from Tumblr, where multicolored hair has reigned supreme for years.)
Fomenting Twitter drama over these things is pretty ridiculous. Lady Gaga had green hair first, but every young celebrity is rocking a candy-colored hair style this season. You don’t see Kelly Osbourne yelling at Nicole Richie for going violet. In fact, the matching shades just seemed to make them better BFFs. And Lady Gaga rode a puppet horse before Katy Perry, but starting a Twitter feud about it seems like a very bad PR move for Lady Gaga.
Considering how many times Lady Gaga has been accused of ripping off other artists, one would think she would choose to stay quiet on this particular issue. Gaga has been accused of copying Hussein Chalayan‘s bubble dress, Bette Midler‘s mermaid in a wheelchair character, and Madonna‘s “Express Yourself” song. Lady Gaga accusing other people of copying just makes us all remember all the times those accusations were leveled against her, and makes Gaga look like a hypocrite. It would have behooved her to let the green hair slide.
