Earlier today, Lady Gaga took to her fansite Little Monsters, where she explained her absence from Kendrick Lamar's upcoming album Good Kid, m.A.A.d. City. She writes that management issues forced her to cut the song and that there is no issue between her and Kendrick. Check out the full statement below.
I apologize to the fans that this situation with Partynausous is confusing. To it clear it up I must explain this. When I collaborate with an artist i work solely with them, not with their camps or management. Its purely organic and creative. I love Kendrick dearly as a friend, but was not willing to compromise musically to the changes his team was making to my music. This is why I am not his record. I have a very specific vision as a producer and songwriter, and I always have. That song will be released at a different time, for a different project. I love you, and think you should check out his stuff because he is truly great. He's a good kid, its just sometimes a mad city. -LG
