I’ll admit it, this story made me like Lady Gaga after too many months of being totally over her. When Gaga accepted her “Fashion Icon” award at the CFDA Awards on Monday night, she gave a little speech and told a funny story about Anna Wintour, the editor of Vogue. Anna is a big fan of Gaga – Gaga has performed at Vogue-sponsored events, been featured in a Vogue pictorial with Oprah, and this year, Gaga got her own Vogue cover. So, Gaga and Anna have the kind of professional friendship in which they could conceivably call or text each other. So when Anna found out that Gaga was receiving the “Fashion Icon” award, she texted Gaga. What happened next is great:
Lady Gaga should probably add Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour’s name to her contacts list. When the 25-year-old “Edge of Glory” singer appeared at the CFDA Fashion Awards on Monday, Gaga shared an embarrassing story involving the famed fashionista during her acceptance speech.
“I can’t believe I’m allowed in here. When I was told I won this award, Anna Wintour sent me a text message,” Gaga said, pausing for dramatic effect. “She text messages.”
After the crowd cheered, Gaga continued to recount her awkward conversation with Wintour. “So she sent me a text message, and it said, ‘We’re so excited to tell you you won the CFDA fashion icon award.’ And I actually thought it was Anna Treblin, who was one of my very close friends and [my stylist] Nicola’s assistant, who I go out and have drinks with all the time. I have a couple Annas in my phone, so my reply was, ‘Yes, bitch, we did it.'”
“Quite quickly I got a reply that said, ‘How lovely, and we will all be waiting to see what you will wear,” Gaga recalled. “And then I thought, ‘Well won’t you be helping me choose what I will wear?’ And then I said, ‘Oh! it’s Anna Wintour.'”

I would have loved to see Anna’s face when she read Gaga’s message. I bet she looked like she sucked a lemon. Or maybe she laughed. God knows.
By the way, have you heard about Eminem’s new single in which he disrespects Lady Gaga? The track is below – the lyrics about Gaga are “Tell Lady Gaga she can quit her job at the post office/ She’s already a male lady/ Wouldn’t f— her with her d—/ The verdict’s in.” Meh. I like Em, but that sounds like an easy one, I think. Oh, there’s also a Bieber reference too. Here’s the song (beware – it’s very NSFW):
