After Madonna was recently quoted as saying, “As for Lady Gaga, I have no comment to make about her obsessions having to do with me because I don’t know whether her behavior is rooted in something deep and meaningful, or superficial” … Gaga fans — affectionately known as “Little Monsters” — naturally went on the defensive, claiming that the 53-year-old Pop Queen was simply being bitter.

But that’s not the case! Or at least that’s what Madonna’s people are saying.

“She didn’t diss Gaga,” Madonna’s rep Liz Rosenberg tells Us Weekly.

She didn’t? Because that clearly sounded like a “diss” to us, like when someone prefaces an insult with “no offense, but…” or “with all due respect…”

Just because you (or your people) say you’re not insulting a person, doesn’t mean you’re not insulting them.

We don’t believe you Madonna … you need more people!
