Lady Gaga has amassed quite a few "little monsters" on Twitter, as she becomes the first person to have 30 million followers on the social networking site. Her fans have been congratulating her via the hashtag #30millionmonsters. Fellow Pop singer Justin Bieber is not far behind her with 28 million Twitter followers of his own.
In other Gaga news, her collaboration with Kendrick Lamar on the track "PARTYNAUSEOUS" did not make the final cut for Lamar's album, to the surprise of many fans. Lamar revealed the tracklisting for his debut, good kid, m.A.A.d city, on October 2, and the song with Gaga was conspicuously absent. The rapper told Power 105/New York that the collaboration didn't make the cut because it didn't fit with album's overall concept.
"Me and Lady Gaga, we really good friends. She's not on the album," Lamar said during The Breakfast Club morning show. "We got some records, but when I was breaking down the bulk of the album, the ones we picked, we set them aside for future reference. I already had everything premeditated for this day, for October 22."
Gaga also addressed the matter on her LittleMonsters.com site, where she wrote: "I apologize to the fans that this situation with Partynausous is confusing. To it clear it up I must explain this. When I collaborate with an artist I work solely with them, not with their camps or management. Its purely organic and creative. I love Kendrick dearly as a friend, but was not willing to compromise musically to the changes his team was making to my music. This is why I am not his record. I have a very specific vision as a producer and songwriter, and I always have. That song will be released at a different time, for a different project. I love you, and think you should check out his stuff because he is truly great. He's a good kid, its just sometimes a mad city."
