Lady Gaga to face Piers Morgan in TV interview
British TV personality Piers Morgan has this time evoked the ire of songstress Lady Gaga by doubting her revelations about sexual assault and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). In a series of tweets, Morgan questioned both Gaga and Madonna’s rape claims suggesting that celebrities use it to “promote themselves”.
The comments didn’t go down well with the Poker Face singer and her 64 million plus followers on the social, as they blasted Morgan on Twitter. After a heated exchange, Gaga even agreed for a TV showdown with the 51-year-old journalist to “educate” him on “why women don’t report” about such assaults.
Gaga’s response was prompted by the journalist’s ignorant comments on Twitter, where he raised questions about the credibility of her and fellow singer Madonna’s claims about suffering sexual assault.
He wrote, “Lady Gaga & Madonna have both made allegations of rape many years after the event. No police complaint, no charges, no court case.
“I don’t think all claims of rape should be necessarily accepted as fact without proper criminal investigation, do you?”
