Lady Gaga is evidently a Directioner.

Mother Monster herself approached One Direction's Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson backstage during Sunday's 2013 MTV Video Music Awards after the boys got booed while picking up a Moonman for Best Song of the Summer ("Best Song Ever").

"If I did hear what I heard out there, I just want to tell you that you deserve every bit of success that you have and don't you dare let those people boo you," Gaga told them.

She further expressed her disgust by adding, "I want to leave right now. I don't even want to stay anymore because I don't want to be in a room where people are booing."

It was a bit of a rough evening for Styles, in particular.

In addition to being subjected to boos, it appeared as if his ex, Taylor Swift , mouthed the words "Shut the f--k up" when 1D took the stage.

And earlier in the night, while accepting the award for Best Female Video for "I Knew You Were Trouble," Swift gave a negative shout-out to the person "who I wrote this song about 'cause you know who you are and now I have this award."

The camera then cut to Styles, who simply smirked.

Meanwhile, Tomlinson and Payne took to Twitter on Monday to show their gratitude for Gaga.

"@ladygaga is a f---ing legend! Such a nice woman !!" tweeted Tomlinson, while Payne wrote, "Morning everyone what a night yesterday was would like to thank @ladygaga for her support yesterday and her extraordinary outfits."
