Lady Gaga Pleads for Fan Forgiveness, Slams Ex-Manager in Open Letter
By Shannon Carlin
On Sunday (Jan. 5), Gaga took to her social networking site, LittleMonsters.com, to talk directly to her fans about what’s been going on in her life as of late. The open letter also allowed for an airing of the grievances regarding those who have betrayed her and mismanaged her time. In November, Gaga split from her longtime manager Troy Carter over “creative differences,” but she does not mention him by name here.
In the post, Gaga talks openly about why the video for “Do What U Want” has been delayed, explaining that the Terry Richardson-helmed clip was rushed due to poor planning on behalf of those around her.
“Those who have betrayed me gravely mismanaged my time and health and left me on my own to damage control any problems that ensued as a result,” she wrote, explaining that she was given only a week to plan for the video when her other clips have taken her months to plan. “It is very devastating for someone like me, I devote every moment of my life to creating fantasies for you.”
