Do you think Lady Gaga is a nice person? Think again.
[Lady Gaga and Jennifer O’Neill in Paris]
The Bad Romance singer could not keep her poker face while ranting under oath about her former assistant in a videotaped deposition on Aug. 6 (as revealed by MSN’s Shortlist earlier today):
“O’Neill is a fucking hood rat who is suing me for money that she didn’t earn.” (“Hood rat?” OMG, Gag-ster, way to take it back to the ’90s.)
From there, Gaga pretty much went all 6th grade mean girl on O’Neill’s you-know-what:
“She thinks she’s just like the queen of the universe. And, you know what, she didn’t want to be a slave to one, because in my work and what I do, I’m the queen of the universe every day.” Ahem.
As for O’Neill’s failings as an assistant, Gaga complained that, “she didn’t enough lay out all my stuff for me,” while they were on tour, forcing the pop star to — gasp — unpack her own bags: “She would only open a couple of bags, and it was very stressful for me,” Gaga grumbled. “I was very often… moving my own luggage and doing shit by myself.” The horror.
Lady Gaga also said none of her employees get paid overtime, adding that O’Neill “knew exactly what she was getting into, she knew there was no overtime.”
“This whole case is bullshit, and you know it,” she added.
But under questioning, she conceded her decision not to pay overtime wasn’t based on labor laws, but is “actually based on a bubbly, good heart.”
“I’m quite wonderful to everybody that works for me, and I am completely aghast to what a disgusting human being that you have become to sue me like this,” she said.
“Because she slept in Egyptian cotton sheets every night, in five-star hotels, on private planes, eating caviar, partying with [photographer] Terry Richardson all night, wearing my clothes, asking YSL [Yves Saint Laurent] to send her free shoes without my permission, using my YSL discount without my permission” - she added.
It seems to me that daddy’s little girl has a very nasty attitude. But that’s no secret. I just have one thing to say to her:
Nope, Lady Gaga, Madonna has got that title too.
