She’s well-acquainted with what it feels like to be criticized and misunderstood, so it’s no wonder that Lady Gaga has sympathy for Miley Cyrus.
During her interview on “Watch What Happens Live,” the “Born This Way” singer reprimanded Cyrus’ haters for the way they’ve treated her since her performance on the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards.
Gaga declared, "I mean, I just think everybody needs to lighten up and leave her alone. Because it's pop music. Everybody's entitled to their own artistic expression, and if you have a problem with it, just change the channel."
"I don't understand the incessant need to constantly go on and on about hating things all the time because, what, she's 20 years old? And if anything, I give her props. You know, she's growing up in front of the entire world and maybe she's not so happy with stuff she did in her career when she was younger and she wants to be free, so let her do what she wants."
