Lady Gaga not "passing judgement" on Miley Cyrus
Pop songstress Lady Gaga doesn't like to "pass judgement" on her female counterparts.
Miley Cyrus faced a barrage of criticism after her risqué performance at the recent MTV Video Music Awards.
The singer performed hit song 'We Can't Stop' before suggestively dancing alongside Robin Thicke on the star's storming 'Blurred Lines'.
Gaga insists she's not getting involved in the controversy.
Speaking to British newspaper The Sun she explained: "I don’t like to pass judgement on Miley Cyrus. Generally, people need to lighten up about pop music, it’s about entertainment.
She added: "It is here to make you smile and make you happy. Especially in America there is an excessive dragging of female artists and I don’t want to contribute to that. I do things that are polarising sometimes but that’s what it’s all about."
Gaga also discussed chart-topping boyband One Direction in the interview.
She gushed: "I can’t put the One Direction boys in order of my favourites, they are all equally cute in my book. Those boys are very special indeed, they are down to earth. I met them backstage properly at the MTV Awards and they are nice guys.
She added: "They are totally in it for the right reasons and I Iove to see that. You can tell the difference."
