That’s what Die Antwoord’s ‘Fatty Boom Boom’ video achieved, after taking their beef with Lady Gaga to a new level.

In the controversial video, a male Lady Gaga impersonator dons a meat dress, gives birth to a Parktown prawn, and tells Die Antwoord they should open for her.

Gaga responded to the video with a Twitter diss, playing on a Die Antwoord lyric and her status as one of the biggest pop artists in the world.

“i fink u freaky but you don't have a hit. hundred thousand tIckets sold in SA. #thatmyshit”, she tweeted.
