After being announced as winners of this year’s ‘Song of the Summer’ of the VMAs, One Direction was greeted with some low-class booing when they got on stage.
Lady Gaga, who opened the VMAs with her new single “Applause,” was appalled and not having it when she heard the less than stellar reception. As the five boys accepted their award and headed off the stage, Mama Monster left her seat to offer them some comforting words back stage.
“Don’t you dare let those people boo you. If I did hear what I heard out there, I just want to tell you that you deserve every bit of success that you have,” Gaga said while still in her mermaid shells from performance. “I want to leave [the VMAs] right now. I don’t want to stay because I don’t want to be in a room where people are booing.”
Gaga also revealed that the booing she had pre-recorded and included in her performance earlier that night was a statement to situations just like this. Watch her performance below:

I have watched with HORROR one of the most up and coming boy bands being booed on stage at the VMS’S by a bunch of MORONS. They have worked hard for there success and suggest that the NUPTI’S check out there road to fame. I have done a gig with them about 3 years ago and found them pleasant,easy to work with and full of fun. It takes a lot to crack the American market and they have done it in a stupendous way. Wake up IDIOTS that booed them and if you can produce anything better. SHOW US.
@Austin: 11 weeks in a row, not 18. The record is 16 weeks, we’ll see if it gets there.
Love Blurred Lines, so danceable. But I did like it better the first time when Marvin Gaye did it and called it “Got to Give It Up.”
It’s nice that she was concerned and said something to them, but calm the fuck down. People are expressing their opinion. They won, because (most likely) teen girls voted for them. The audience was made up of people in their 20’s who aren’t the fan base for these guys so they booed. It can’t all be rainbows and sunshine.
