Lady Gaga Has Pitch Perfect Response To Fan Who Said They 'Miss' The Old Lady Gaga

Artists evolve.

Long-standing artists like Michael Jackson, Cher, David Bowie, Elton John, Madonna, etc... evolve so radically—either in sound, look, persona or sometimes all three—that we can break their long careers down into "eras."

Moment of honesty, though, couldn't that really be said for most of us? Life happens, we evolve.

One Lady Gaga fan isn't too happy about the artist's evolution and told her as much in the comments of a recent Instagram post.

Lady Gaga actually responded and it was kind of brilliant.

Things started way back in 2010 when Lady Gaga had just won her very first Grammy—she's up to 13 now—and someone snapped a candid picture of her emotional reaction. The shot was taken while she was getting ready, so she's still in a robe and her hair is still clipped.

Three days ago, she re-posted the old image with the caption:

"Me after the first Grammy I ever won. Still hits my heart like that."


The post got tons of love.

One comment evidently stood out enough that Gaga felt the need to respond.

Like we said before, not everyone is thrilled with the artist's evolution.

The fan wrote:

"I miss the person in the picture so much."

Meat-Dress Gaga might have snapped back at the fan.

Artpop Gaga might have done an interpretive dance or painted about it.

Joanne Gaga may have just tipped her hat and sauntered away.

This is not any of those Gagas. The Gaga we are dealing with lately is a smarter, more elegant, more composed and mature Gaga.

So she turned it into a marketing opportunity and promoted her new tour.

Gaga responded:

"I'm still here. see you at #TheChromaticaBall."

Mother Monster's fans loved her response.

Lady Gaga also reflected on her career in a post celebrating her 13th Grammy.

And that folks, is evolution in artistry in action.
