Lady Gaga - Lady Gaga defends One Direction after boos
Lady Gaga defended One Direction and threatened to leave the MTV Video Music Awards after the boy band were booed last night (25.08.13).
The group received a surprisingly negative reaction when they collected the gong for 'Song of the Summer' - for their hit single 'Best Song Ever' - and while they took it in their stride, they still had the support of the 'Applause' singer.
Seen backstage after the boy band accepted their award, Gaga was heard saying: ''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.
''I want to leave right now. I don't want to stay anymore because I don't want to be in a room where people are booing.''
Liam Payne took to his Twitter account earlier today (26.08.13) and thanked the star for her kind words.
He wrote: ''Morning everyone what a night yesterday was would like to thank @ladygaga for her support yesterday and her extraordinary outfits.''
Earlier in the night, Taylor Swift was seemingly caught on camera turning to Selena Gomez and telling ex-boyfriend Harry Styles to ''shut the f**k up'' while his was on stage with his band mates to present the award for Best Pop Video.
