Mermaid Scandal!

| Filed under: Katy PerryLady GaGa


Little Monsters are not happy right now, and they took to Twitter to voice their frustration!

Katy Perry posted the above photo of her as a mermaid under a bridge, and many GaGa fans are pointing to a treatment, conceived by GaGa herself, that leaked of the original Edge Of Glory music video, which had not just a GaGa as a mermaid but also had her under a bridge too, the same as the photo above.

Additionally, GaGa performed as a mermaid on French TV last month and has been Tweeting about how her next music video will feature a mermaid.

Just a coincidence or did Katy copy GaGa???

    right cause no ones ever done the mermaid thing.
    thats like me saying they all copied disney/Ariel.
    get over it.

  2. 102

    Perez u and lady gags are fucking morons!!

  3. 103

    See the difference here is katy Perry is a mermaid.. gaga is a merman… LMAO. Beyonce sang if "I were a boy", Ciara did "like a boy", Rhianna did "Rude Boy" and gaga is going to come out with "I'm really a boy" because she can't be left out you know…

  4. 104

    I think most of the reason people don't like Gaga anymore is really because of her little monsters. She has the rudest fan base around. She preaches how her monsters are all about love and tolerance, but look how psycho they get over one photo. Their attitude and demeanor is such a turn off.. Who would want to be associated with a group that acts like this? They are like gremlins.. sprinkle some water on them they get riled up.. sprinkle some competition their way and they just can't contain themselves.

  5. 105

    katy was a mermaid at the 2009 Life Vienna Ball so everyone saying katy copied should stfu.

  6. 106

    Hey all you tiny bopper douche bags, it wasn't Gag-face nor Hag-donna who invented the mermaid thing, It was the Devine Miss M aka Bette Midler's claim to fame.

  7. 107

    Okay idk what to think of that until i see the pictures.. i have never seen any mermaid pictures of Gaga.. and she never used them in her video.. which she should have instead of being a dick to the director.. i'd be irratated too but then again Gaga copies everything so she probably deserves it ..
    p.s. mermaids belong to everyone -.-

  8. 108

    Katy perrys a stupid bitch. get ur own shit troll!

  10. 110

    sigh i really hate when my comment doesn't show its just so frustrating that i just print out a picture of your ugly face perez and put in my toilet before i have to go. ughhh

  11. 111

    I love how you try to call Katy Perry out on "copying" Lady Gaga with the whole mermaid shtick, yet you totally ignore all the NUMEROUS instances where Lady Gaga "copied" other artists' fashion and/or music. All artists are guilty of "borrowing" to a degree, but calling some artists out on it while repeatedly ignoring one particular artist you happen to be close with makes you the William Randolph Hearst (or Charles Foster Kane) of pop culture journalism. Still love your site for the most part though.

    Re: MEgg420 – Go play in the garden little girl, this is a grown up conversation

  13. 113

    conceived by gaga herself? seriously? maybe gaga stole the idea from the little mermaid…

  14. 114

    Who cares? I'm a huge Lady Gaga fan myself, but she wasn't the one who invented the mermaid concept. People are just overreacting…

  15. 115

    Re: MEgg420 – Sit down.

  16. 116

    Oh please, much as I like Gaga she didn't invent mermaids, they have been around in fantasy and folklore for a very long time. In any event, the original video idea (with one or more mermaids) for Edge of Glory was scrapped and you can hardly point to Gaga dressing as a mermaid once as an example of her owning the concept, Gaga changes her look every time she performs lately, its not like she has made the mermaid idea part of her iconography. Going back to this particular picture of Katy, its not all that attractive anyway, mermaid or not ;o)

  17. 117

    Re: ricca_santos – No he also ripped of Lady Gagme. She is the first mermaid ever created. She should totally sue for copyright infringment, she has a great case. Wait my 8 year old daughter owes her money to for the time she dressed up as a mermaid. Where do we send the check?

  18. 118

    Well, considering how everybody in the music industry isn't original and is influenced and inspired by many other people….

  19. 119

    Re: Saetana – Exactly, I don't see what the big deal is. Anyways, which single do you expect her next music video be? I'm wondering if it's either You And I or Marry The Night.

  20. 120

    Daryl Hannah did it first in "Splash." Having said that, I really like Katy Perry and Lady GaGa, although I don't understand the "planking" craze.

  21. 121

    Re: MEgg420 – wow what a dumbass you are.. so it's okay to copy so long as it's timed?.. wow go fuck yourself stupid.

  22. 122

    the edge of glory video sucked so much i didn't even watch it far enough to see the mermaid part. and since when did gaga copyright mermaids and bridges? everyone just needs to chill out.

  23. 123

    What in the cock sucking fuck is "planking"??? It sounds fucking stupid and childish! This generation sucks…}:

  24. 124

    Re: J-Doll – AGREED! This Generation DOES SUCK.

  25. 125

    Katy has been copying Gaga since Cali girls, with the hair bow. The song firework was made to rival BTW, and Katy released it as soon as she found out what btw was about. Lets not even talk about E.T cause she not only ripping on Gaga, the beat is from that single tatu put out. and that last one.. TGIF? yeahh.. A sax player… Katy is studying Gaga to compete, which is fucking disgusting.

  26. 126


  27. 127

    I hope Katy Perry should STOP BEING FRIENDS WITH PEREZ. Perez has read about the Japan Scam, the stealing a fans tumblr name all that other bullshit. If this was Lady Gaga instead of Katy Perry you will not see it here. I hope Katy sees this article and my comment and avoids perez's sorry ass.

    And like other people said Lady Gaga did not come up with the mermaid agenda it's been done way before her. GAGa copies everyone and that's a fact. She is a fraud.

  28. 128

    Errr…why aren't you raising the fact that GaGa rips off everyone from Grace Jones to Madonna???

  29. 129

    I think that Lady Gaga has done so many bizarre things of so many types, that other pop stars can't help but accidentally copy her here or there. Lady Gaga has so many performances, interviews, appearances, etc. and she is so eccentric for all of them, all over the world that she's pretty much covered any base in the realm of what a pop star can do at this point. I don't think Katy Perry was intentionally copying Gaga, I just think that Gaga is so outrageous and done everything and beyond, that other stars can't help but accidentally come up with similar ideas.

  30. 130

    Re: awkwardturtle – "The Edge of Glory" never featured a mermaid in the end because apparently she butted heads with the original director so all it was was her "dancing" and "pantomiming" into the camera on a stairwell. That WAS it.

  31. 131

    Re: J-Doll – planking is a very stupid trend that started on the internet..basically people take photos of themselves in random plases laying flat down facing the ground… Its very stupid.

  32. 132

    madonna did Mermen…super sexy Mermen. but it would have been fun to see her back at the beginning as a mermaid with all her fishnet and accesories. I think every singer should go mermaid/ merman…… Lil Kim, Pink, Adam Levine….Billy Idol anyone???

  33. 133

    Re: MsJules – I agree totally.

  34. 134

    They are both copying me!!! When I was 4 I used to wear this mermaid costume everyday because I thought when I went to the ocean I would turn into a mermaid, so when my family went on vacation to Florida I wore my costume to the ocean and we were under a pier. I didn't turn into a mermaid, but these bitches stole my childhood memory!

  35. 135

    Haha That's ironic, Caca"s fans getting pissed cause they think someone copied her. Caca hasn't had an original idea in her life. Everything she does is copied off of someone much more talented than her. Katy Perry has more talent in her pinky than Caca has in her whole body,including her giant Toucan beak. And I am not a Katy Perry fan either,but she has talent and personality. Caca is a huge fake.

  36. 136

    Look at the charts…If GaGa can come anywhere close to Katy Perry, them maybe she can be upset. If GaGa was first with the mermaid…the video tanked. I personally think she rushed to get a video out for Edge of Glory to try to save the CD. She didn't have time to make a concept video. (The other videos sucked). GaGa is on her 5th single from her CD…and Katy Perry is about to her her 5th Billboard Hot 100 from her CD. Just Saying!!

  37. 137

    If the "little monsters" were bent out of shape over this, its time to care about real issues. Not this kind of garbage

  38. 138

    I'm surprised that you're not calling them "edge of glory mermaids".

  39. 139

    Katy Perry should just stick to doing "ZIT" commercials that's what she's best at. The lights on but not on upstairs!

  40. 140

    Re: Truth_Is_A-Virus – agreed! would add more but everyone who sees lady gaga as the copying whore she is has said it for me. team katy any day at least she appreciates all her fans not only gay ones, writes songs that make fucking sense and though she reminds of a vapid teen girl instead of a woman that she should be she produces songs that can make even an 86 year old women bop her head. you have to be gay to enjoy lady gaga music now that's all she seems to represent, wish she would've stayed the old gaga.

  41. 141

    Well now CaCa knows how Grace Jones, Madonna, and Kylie Feels you little monsters are crazy STFU.
    Re: Little Miss Genius – Amen call that bitch out.

  42. 142

    Let's be a little fair here-is there anything Gaga hasn't portrayed herself to be?

  43. 143

    Re: Not my gumdrop buttons! – thank you! x} I'm happy someone sees it.. Everything about this generation ..and what is considered "cool" is a joke..It makes me cringe seeing posers..omg.. Everything real has gone to shit D'x

  44. 144

    Re: MsJules – wow holy fucking shit..Idk what the hell to even say besides omfg this generation sucks ass.. i can't believe anyone finds this cool.. as a world we are supossed to be progressing not go backwards..but when i read that my face went like this O:.. no words..

    Re: bundroallday – I wasn't going to sign in until I read your comment, it was hilarious & perfect. thank you

  46. 146

    Re: Josephine05 – You have to be gay to like Gaga and her music? Do you realize how much of an idiot you sound? Lady Gaga has many straight fans also if you didn't notice, heck I'm a straight male and I love Gaga, I really do. Thus her songs at least have some meaning to it. But really she doesn't exactly "copy" multiple artists, she is just heavily inspired by them. I think Katy Perry is ok, I mean, her songs are annoying imo, but I enjoy her personality.

  47. 147

    Re: crickets – Excuse me, but you obviously haven't seen Gaga's acoustic performances and been on her tours. She at least sings live and is an expert pianist. And please don't try to deny it, just search it on youtube.

  48. 148

    No need for everyone's panties to be in a wad…don't you know….imitation is the sincerest form of flattery! Mermaid copying has been around for centuries.

  49. 149

    I think everybody is forgetting how Katy Xerox copied Lady Gaga's video Born this Way! But I guess when your as stupid as Katy copycat all you can do is STEAL other peoples ideas. Lady Gaga has the best and the biggest fan base in the world, and there called Little Monsters!!!!!

  50. 150

    Re: bundroallday
    ". she has yet to put out one original, unique, song with deep lyrics…it all sounds like it was written by some kid that just finsihed watching barny`s sing a long."
    LOL…and Katy Perry does? My god, her first big hit was a Gary Glitter meets Jill Sobule rip-off. Nothing from her has been original or "deep," bro!

  51. 151

    Re: Monster H – I get what you're saying, because the videos for their songs had similar themes. But honestly, what else could Katy have done for her video? The song was about aliens, so she had a video about aliens. I think it was more of a coincidence, if anything.

  52. 152

    GAGA is not copying madonna. The only time she has done things madonna has done it was clearly an omage! No she didnt invent the mermaid, but doing the same effin thing two weeks later? Uhhhh yea. Fucking copycat. How about you all come out with completly original ideas, and YOU write 10 #1 hit singles, and YOU Become rolling stones queen of pop. Then you all can talk. NOTHING IS ORIGINAL ANYMORE. EVERYTHING HAS BEEN DONE. Gaga just makes it look better. ;)

  53. FS says – reply to this


    GAGA GOT PELTED WITH EGGS IN SYDNEY!! Look it up on google. 100% truth!

  54. 154

    Um yeah, they BOTH copied me :) Professional mermaids have been around for a while, the first was Annette Kellerman 100 freaking years ago so everyone who thinks it was Madonna or Beth are wrong :) Hopefully it means more business for me!!!

  55. 155

    like I said, both copying me :P

  56. 156

    Little monsters are a bunch little idiots. This is how everybody feels when Gaga copies people daily. Katy Perry could dress up exactly like Gaga and monsters can't say a thing because Lady Gaga is the biggest copycat out there.

  57. 157

    Re: Tre_Claire – I agree. Gaga fans are fucking crazy. If I ever meet one of her cult following monsters i will go buck wild on them.

  58. 158

    I think it is almost every girl's fantasy to be a mermaid if you grew up with Ariel. And I think Katy Perry's videos have always had a tongue-in-cheek fun mentality that mermaids fit into nicely. Gaga's videos are always conceptually hard to understand until they're explained, dark, and full of dance moves. A mermaid doesn't quite fit in, and when it's done I'm sure it will have to be pointed out to me because her boobs are spikes and she has an octopus bottom, all in black leather.

  59. 159

    nope. A woman like Katy Perry can't copy a tranny like Gaga. Can't be done

  60. 160

    Actually, BETTE MIDLER was the first to perform as a mermaid…on stage, TV and screen.

  61. @v@ says – reply to this


    That's a totally funny and ribbing picture of Katy as a planking mermaid.
    Scandal schmandal. Grab a sense of humor and seriously get over one's self.

  62. 162

    It's not just about who copied who, but tbh if katy had any imagination she would have thought have something different.

  63. 163

    why does it even matter what katy perry does. KATY AND GAGA DIFFERENT. who cares its just a photo the lil monsters need to chill.
    BTW i love gaga and katy soo… i aint on a side

  64. 164

    This is a planking picture dumb f*ck

  65. 165

    Wow from the looks of it most people agree Katy > Gaga

  66. 166

    Re: LeonDancer – In Case you had your head so far up gaga's "original me" ass to notice, Firework and Last Friday Night were released 6 months prior to Born This Way and The Edge of Glory. Youre really not helping your case here bro, copying is something you do AFTER, not before so by your logic Gaga is the copycat! AGAIN! What a huge surprise!! &_&

  67. 167

    Its called planking…………Look it up people

  68. 168

    Gaga is so original that if you're a child of the 70's and 80's you are totally having a Madonna DejaVu… And THAT is a fact!

  69. 169

    Re: goingtohell_500 – we don't care….

  70. 170

    Gaga isn't copying Madonna, only the ignorant haters claim this statement. However, there are similarities between them. But also, I see lots of differences between them (believe me, I've seen both of their styles and music videos and I can point out many differences).

  71. 171

    Re: JCPiscool – Totally!! LMAO!!

  72. 172

    Re: Success Probability 0% – No, you're wrong. GaGa copies Madonna ALL THE TIME. xo

  73. 173

    Re: POPSCIDICTATOR – Random, but is your avatar that New York woman from Flavor of Love and I Love New York?

  74. 174

    yes katy copied gaga. just like gaga copys madonna. everyone copies everyone.

  75. 175

    Re: Success Probability 0% – please refer to post 105 describes you perfectly! and i stand by my comment douchebag yes because that's the only shit she sings about her whole album is for the gay community, its fucking annoying. and you call yourself straight? hard to believe a straight man is really spending his time defending lady gaga as aggressively as you are. (not that there is anything wrong about being gay) but im calling bullshit on that one buddy. if you read my full post you'd realize that im upset that gaga has seemed to cater only to her gay fans even at her monster concert in Ct she said her gay fans were her true fans? wtf? well she's right cuz this girl is off the lady gaga copy train shes a fucking loser.

  76. 176

    Re: Success Probability 0% – if you didn't care about that guys comment you wouldn't of responded.. and yes she does copy..it's not the haters that say it.. it's the obsessed fans that can't take it ;D.. and i don't know any straight guy that would be this upset and defensive about Lady Gaga or any Pop star in general..so it's either b.s. or you got some mental problems..

  77. 177

    for someone who copies madonna left and right(gaga), her fans are pretty touch on katy perry.

  78. 178

    Re: J-Doll – where is the like button? Like Like Like. thank you, someone sees some sense

  79. 179

    Re: J-Doll – I'm defending Gaga, but I am not overly obsessed over her every second of my life. It's not like you have to call me out just because I like Gaga personally. Thus, of the copying thing, she has many inspirations from different artists, it's called HOMAGE. However, that whole shock factor and religion thing for both Madonna and Lady Gaga are similar, but not exact copies. Lady Gaga just takes it a step further with her fashion, but her music videos are not as shocking compared to some of Madonna's. "Judas" for instance and "Like A Prayer" are different because of their meanings, and their music videos are completely different. I do believe though that "Born This Way" sounds very similar to "Express Yourself", but I think she was also paying homage (see the music video toward the end).

  80. 180

    lmao i love katy is she planking?! love it! and all of you "little monsters" stfu who cares lol not to mention gaga is pretty much jacking all of madonna's shizz (ex: most of her songs, and the way madonna's looks were "ever changing"

  81. 181

    I'm glad Katy did this. Gave Gaga a taste of her own medicine.

  82. 182


  83. 183

    i'm a little monster, and i really don't care, of course many has done the mermaid-thing before, but i'm not so sure everybody was UNDER A BRIGE. just sayin

  84. 184

    To all the Katy Perry fans out there:
    Please stop called us "little retards". It's annoying.
    And FYI, we're not saying GaGa 'owns' mermaids, we're just sayin it's weird how Katy just-so-happened to be doing the mermaid thing at the time.
    And you're all acting as if fricking Madonna owns mermaids, which is also annoying.
    Lady GaGa isn't original. Nothing is. Period. But saying she 'stole' from past singers, she was inspired by them, not stealing their fashion/song ideas.
    But planking is stupid and dangerous.. Just look at that chick who fell off a 10 storey building in Sydney.
