Lady Gaga is feeling the backlash for sitting in Jerry Seinfeld’s private luxury box at the Mets stadium. Seinfeld was addressed on the issue during a radio interview for WFAN, and let’s just say the shit hit the fan.
"This woman is a jerk. I hate her," Seinfeld said.
Gaga was moved to Jerry’s box from her front row seating after she kept flipping off photographers. He continued, “I can't believe they put her in my box, which I paid for."
"You give people the finger and you get upgraded? Is that the world we're living in now?" he said. "I wish her the best. You take one 'A' off of that and you've got gag."
Jerry thinks one of Gaga’s problems is her overexposure and desire to be in the spotlight at all times. "I don't know what these young people think or how they promote their careers," Seinfeld said.
"I'm older, I'm 56. I look at Lady Gaga the way Keith Hernandez watches these kids when they pull the pocket out, they wear the inside-out pocket. ... Do you think he understands that? He can't understand that. That's a new game, that's kids."
He added, "I'm not one of these all-publicity-is-good people. People talk about you need exposure -- you could die of exposure."
He’s definitely got a point. The celebrity world is all about exposure, staying in the limelight for as long as possible. But Seinfeld is a great example of a star that’s had a long and successful career without ever having to ass out or be embroiled in a controversy to stay relevant.
Who do you side with? Jerry or Gaga?
