Lady Gaga hits back at "ironic" NME pretentious jibe

Lady Gaga has launched an attack against NME magazine, who called 'Born This Way' the "most pretentious album ever".

The album beat off competition from the likes of Lou Reed and KISS to land the somewhat uninviting title.

Speaking about their reasons behind picking the album, NME said: "For a while Gaga was the most exciting pop star on the planet. Then on 'Born This Way' she seemed to believe in her own hype, convinced that she had a message to share. Cue an album of unwieldy 'anthems' that couldn't mask the fact the fun had left the building."

But Gaga soon responded on Twitter, calling the news "ironic". She said:

"Oh the irony of winning "Most Pretentious Album Ever" from none other than NME. *eyeroll* I might laugh forever + then return to narcissism."
