In a powerful statement, Gaga boldly declared that it was time for everyone to cease their relentless scrutiny of Cyrus and to refrain from exacerbating an already challenging situation for her. Lady Gaga told Andy Cohen on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live,

“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.”

Furthermore, Lady Gaga claimed that Cyrus’s controversial on-stage act was nothing but an artistic expression of a talented pop singer. Gaga further stated,

“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.”

As a seasoned veteran in navigating controversy, Gaga passionately argued that the media’s relentless criticism of Cyrus’s performances was unjust and inappropriate. In doing so, Gaga not only stood in solidarity with Cyrus but also demanded artistic freedom in the face of societal judgment.
