We never thought Adam Levine would be the one to instigate a Twitter feud.
But on Friday (Sept. 20), Levine tweeted about an unidentified artist, saying:
Ugh..recycling old art for a younger generation doesn't make you an artist. It makes you an art teacher.
— Adam Levine (@adamlevine) September 20, 2013
He followed it up with another tweet, stating:
I unabashedly love writing and performing pop music for both myself AND everyone around me. That's It. It doesn't need any extra sauce.

Gaga, presuming the tweet was written about her, responded with:
uh oh guys the art police is here
— Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) September 21, 2013
Though there has been no further interaction between the two, it seems relatively obvious that the 34-year-old "The Voice" coach was referring to Gaga and her "Applause" music video. In it, she references a number of famous works of art, including the 1957 film "The Seventh Seal" and Sandro Botticelli's 1486 painting, "The Birth of Venus."
