Lady Gaga Comforts a Heckled One Direction
It was a big night in Brooklyn as Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards went down at the spankin’ new Barclays Center. One Direction took home the trophy for “Best Song of the Summer” for their track “Best Song Ever” — and were promptly booed for it.
Next to Miley Cyrus’ scantily-clad catbag, it was the biggest dish of the evening.
Fans were clearly upset that Robin Thicke and Daft Punk were “robbed” of their accolades for their respective summer smashes, “Blurred Lines” and “Get Lucky.” One D crooner Harry Styles was heckled and subjected to a “Shut the F**k Up” from ex-girlfriend Taylor Swift as he and his bandmates attempted to give their acceptance speech.
Interestingly enough, there was one person who stood up to the naysayers and defended the British quintet: Lady Gaga. Clad in her sea shell bikini from her latest video for “Applause,” Gaga reportedly comforted the boys, saying:
“Don’t you dare let those people boo you. If I did hear what I heard out there, I just want to tell you that you deserve every bit of success that you have. I want to leave right now. I don’t want to stay anymore because I don’t want to be in a room where people are booing.”
