Lady Gaga Lashes Out At Billboard, ‘ARTPOP’ Debuts At No.1

Lady Gaga is thankful to her fans for giving her another no.1 charting album, but she also has a few gripes with critics (and even Billboard) for attacking her work instead of supporting it.

Taking to Twitter just hours after Billboard confirmed that "ARTPOP" debuted at no.1 on the Billboard 200, with 258,000 copies sold, Gaga questioned the organizations and people "pointing and laughing" instead of appreciating artistry.

"I put so much love into my music, into my shows, I make it all for you. I'll never understand the overflow of hate sent my way. Or maybe thats what entertainment is now. It's more fun to point & laugh than appreciate the artist. I'll keep rehearsing my steps #showbiz," Gaga wrote before going in on Billboard and later deleting the tweet.

"@billboard you're included actually. In todays industry, u should be supportive of music period. Why target a passionate + dedicated artist?" wrote Gaga.

As previously reported, Gaga will be taking the stage for a performance during Sunday's American Music Awards. Ariana Grande, Christina Aguilera and Justin Timberlake are among those that will share the same stage performing during the course of the night.

The American Music Awards air Sunday, Nov. 24 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
