It's been kind of a weird week in the press when it comes to the split of Lady GaGa and longtime creative director, the fabulous Laurieann Gibson.
Some reports say GaGaloo fired Laurieann. Others say Laurieann just reached her boiling point and walked out.
But Laurieann has decided to come forward and address the issue, explaining that GaGa had reached a point in her career where she could control her own creativity so she walked away amicably:
I am fulfilled with the work I have done with choreographing all of the iconic moves, creative directing the artist, appearances, shows, directing the tour, music videos, and the HBO Monster Ball, which was a culmination of my work as its creator and director. Recently, Lady GaGa was motivated to take the helm of the creative direction of her career and as such I decided to step away. I am extremely proud of her, and in stepping away I wish her all the best. I look forward to continuing my work with notable artists, as well as new artists that are part of my Interscope Records deal, and the upcoming seasons of my TV shows.
Sounds pretty classy if you ask us! And yeah, every real artist gets to that point sooner or later.
GaGa is a free bitch, baby!!!
