The claws are coming out!

Azealia Banks is waging a war of words yet again, and this time she's calling out Lady Gaga on Twitter for being a copycat.

Mother Monster tweeted last night, "I will be providing a list of acceptable attire for #SwineFest throughout the week. Item 1: Seashells. Item 2: Seahorses. 3: Starfish."

To which Ms. Banks immediately replied, "hmmmm sounds a lot like Azealia Banks' mermaid balls."

Yikes! But of course she didn't stop there.

"Of COURSE gaga wants to play mermaid again….Pffft," she added. "Not picking a fight. Just all looks soo familiar….To me."

She concluded her diss-session with, "It's just…Late."

To be fair, Banks has been rocking the mermaid look for almost a year now. But does she hold the monopoly on the style? We're not so sure.

Gaga sported a pair of strategically placed seashells (and a shell-adorned thong) for her 2013 MTV VMA performance of "Applause" last weekend. So the look isn't entirely new for her either.

And to add to her celeb disses, she tweeted a photo of singer Lily Allen and captioned the pic, "Ugh, bitch bye."

The photo was an older paparazzi snapshot that showed Allen sunbathing nude (and is really unflattering, to say the least.) What ever happened to the old adage if you don't have anything nice to say, then don't say anything at all? Ah, those were the good days.

It seems that the "212" singer is back to running her own Twitter account, however. In April, she announced that she would be stepping down for her social media soapbox after a string of scandals.

"My days of twitter terror are about to be over," she said at the time, "I have to turn over my password."

Banks has caused controversies with some of the music industry's top names, including Rita OraBaauerA$AP Rocky and Lil' Kim. And that's just a partial list…
