Lady GaGa, Kanye West Still Friends

Saturday, October 31, 2009

Lady GaGaLADY GaGa insists she’s still friends with Kanye West — despite the fact the pair canceled their joint Fame Kills tour.

“I didn’t drop Kanye — Kanye and I are friends. We’re still friends,” the Love Game hitmaker, 23, said on SIRIUS XM’s Morning Mash Up on Friday. “When you’re really friends with somebody, you can make difficult decisions, and we made a very difficult decision.”

GaGa and West canceled their co-headlining tour just five weeks before it was set to kick off on Nov. 10.

“It was hard on both of us,” she said.”When we were talking, I said, ‘Even though this isn’t happening right now, I’m going to still go out on the road.

“And he said, ‘Great, I support you.’ And he’s been very supportive.”

“I’m playing [to] just as many people in each city that I would have played on Fame Kills, but the ticket price is much lower,” she said, laughing. “The show is just as expensive… I’m doing what I always do, which is, I go bankrupt.”

“The difference between someone like myself and someone that’s three or four albums deep, is I’m still new,” GaGa added. “And my fans are so amazing and so loyal. They’re not normal top 40 radio fans, they’re like crazy punk rock fans. And they have got me tattooed all over them, and they come with lightning bolts and wigs and they’re throwing glitter and they’re fainting all over the place. They’re the coolest kids in the world… I want them to come see a brilliant, amazing, life-changing show.”
