Lady Gaga and Perez Hilton's war of words continues. The pop star and the blogger had a famous falling out in 2011, and by the fall of 2013, the former friends took their troubles to Twitter. After days of public feuding, Gaga pleaded with her fans to stop issuing death threats on her behalf.
The "Do What U Want" singer reignited their feud in a Nov. 11 interview with USA Today when she rehashed their apartment drama from August. "It's fine to hate me afar. Everyone can hate me from afar. But the second you try to move in next door to me, I know you're getting too close, and it's not safe," Gaga said.
"I have lots of security," she continued. "I get death threats all the time. Some things bring out the New Yorker in me. If you hate somebody and you want to move next door to me, the only thing I can think of is that you're moving in because you want to blow yourself up. There's thousands and millions of apartments in New York. You don't need to move in next door to me."
Hilton (real name: Mario Lavandeira) tweeted a link to the article and addressed the singer directly, writing, "I've got my son and mom here with me in NYC and you think I'm going to blow myself up? Stop doing drugs!!"
While Gaga, 27, has been open about her substance abuse issues, Hilton took it a step further by tweeting both of her parents. "If your daughter ends up dead it's from a drug overdose. Not cuz I blew us up!" he wrote. "She's sick! delusional!" The single dad later tweeted, "If you think marijuana is the only drug @LadyGaGa has been doing regularly in 2013, then you're as delusional as she is."
Hilton, 35, then shared several links to less-than-stellar ARTPOP reviews. He also asked fans to buy Christina Aguilera's underperforming disc Bionic, which dropped in June 2010, instead of Gaga's just-released fourth studio album. (The blond musicians are seen as rivals by many music fans.)
Gaga has yet to reply to Hilton's latest tweets, as she's been busying promoting her new music, being honored at Glamour's Women of the Year Awards and preparing for her Saturday Night Live episode.
