Stop press: Roisin speaks out!
Roisin's publicist sent me an official statement by Roisin herself, in which she rectifies the Lady Gaga commotion. It goes to show one can never trust the tabloids, ever. And now, over to Roisin:
STOP PRESS! WHEN SHOULDER PADS CLASH!!: As far as I was concerned I was doing a short interview to promote, 'I'm Every Woman' a Charity record for ACTION AID and ended up getting myself into a tabloid trap. As the press are inclined to do, they have taken some comments I made completely out of context and completely fabricated others.
I NEVER said 'Lady Gaga is a poor imitation of me' That was a completely made up quote. I respect Lady Gaga's work as an artist and as a fellow fashion icon. She is a very talented performer, playing the piano, singing live and dancing too. I Don't Care about Shoulder pads! Not every female artist needs to be at odds with their contemporaries - I prefer to focus on the wonderful things happening in my life, which are plentiful.
I am a very honest person (which can often be problematic when it comes to doing press) but I am not a bitchy person. All the best to Lady Gaga - she is fantastic.
As Roisin sang in Pure Pleasure Seeker, a severe case of being "misjudged and misquoted". Please leave your comments!
