Lady Gaga & Die Antwoord: Mother Monster Fires Back

10/19/2012 09:17 am ET

Lady Gaga isn't taking yesterday's attack by Die Antwoord quietly.

The South African Zef rap group released a music video for their single "Fatty Boom Boom" that depicts a very obvious Lady Gaga-lookalike in a not-so-flattering way. The impostor Gags is put through the ringer, ending the video by being eaten by a lion.

Gaga wasn't too pleased with the portrayal and tweeted on Wednesday, "i fink u freaky but you don't have a hit. hundred thousand tickets sold in SA. #thatmys--t" She was referencing one of Die Antwoord's bigger songs, "I Fink U Freaky," and her upcoming shows in Johannesburg and Cape Town.

A few minutes later, she tweeted, "i guess its not a good idea to tell someone you're a fan. never mind! we get it, you're not a little monster. WE GOT IT." The singer had asked Die Antwoord to go on tour with her -- an offer that the group flatly rejected.

Die Antwoord, never one to shy away from controversy, quickly responded "lady... even tho u r 'larger' than us... we still cooler than u... plus we don't have prawns in our private parts... haha!"
