Lady Gaga Defends Lindsay Lohan as Liz Taylor: “They Always Try to Knock The Greats Down”
Lindsay Lohan may have plenty of haters, but she also has some good friends. Charlie Sheen is rumored to have given Lindsay $100,000 to help her pay off tax debts, and Lady Gaga recently tweeted her support for LiLo's performance in Liz & Dick.
Lady Gaga and Lindsay have become good buddies — they had a sleepover with friends over the summer at the Chateau Marmont, and Page Six said LiLo landed a role in one of Gaga's new music videos.
Lindsay's Lifetime biopic Liz & Dick aired on Sunday, and got bashed by several critics. But Mother Monster tweeted support for Lindsay on Monday, writing, "you did a beautiful job on Liz & Dick, Let no one bring u down, Liz didnt, they always try to knock the greats down a few pegs."
Weirdly enough, the tweet isn’t shown on Gaga’s Twitter timeline, but the Wall Street Journal posted a screenshot of the support. Did Lady G delete the post? Maybe she realized it was kind of a backhanded compliment to acknowledge the haters while comparing Lindsay to one of the “greats,” thereby inviting more criticism.
Anyway, did you catch Liz & Dick on Sunday? If so, what did you think?
