Don’t Touch Me! India.Arie Swatted By Lady Gaga’s Security at Grammys; Says There is No Beef (Video)

India.Arie has no hard feelings towards Lady Gaga, but not so much for her security guard after she was shunned away at the Grammys on Sunday.

While trying to reach out to Gaga for a quick hello on the red carpet, Arie’s hand was swatted away by the “Poker Face” singer’s security.

“When I reached to speak to @ladygaga her security swatted my wrist – clapping something hard against my turquoise bracelet #Grammy2015 smh,” Arie wrote on Twitter.

Following the tweet, followers of both Arie and Gaga became defensive, so she quickly unleashed more tweets, insisting she has no problem with Gaga, but she has a problem with being touched “aggressively.”

“Lets squash this now – everyone responding to my @ladygaga tweet – I know her I wanted to speak like did everyone else I saw I know,” she adds. “Her security swatted my hand – SHE didn’t see me. And my point is not @ladygaga my point is — this is the energy of the hollywood bubble. I give and expect respect – but some people aren’t like that – and yes I was upset because @ladygaga security guard TOUCHED me. I was Not upset because @ladygaga didn’t SEE me. I don’t like being touched aggressively. Period.”

To Lady Gaga’s defense, the Grammy red carpet is a cluster f***, and as much as we hate to say it, security probably thought Arie was a fan.

We’re guessing a phone call is needed.

In brighter news, Arie confirmed the possibility of two new albums in 2015.

“And YES! New music soon!!! God willing – Two albums this year – ill keep you posted !! Ok off to rehearsal!” she writes.
