Lady Gaga "too lame" for Sony

Another day, another Sony email leak.

While shopping for music for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 soundtrack, Rihanna, Lorde, Ellie Goulding, and a duet between Alicia Keys and Pharrell were considered... but guess who wasn't?

That's right... Lady Gaga!

In fact, she was dismissed before she was even suggested!

The emails, which can be found linked here, state that Rihanna was "not interested", but that Ellie Goulding was liked, that Lorde was "cool", and the Alicia Keys/Pharrell duet would be "cool" too, but just "not right for Spidey".

So what did they say about Gaga? That she was "too lame"!

More specifically, the email said:
 "I think gaga might be too lame after die antwoord made fun of [her] in [their] video."
She's talking about the song/video "Fatty Boom Boom" where Die Antwoord mocks Gaga by having a lookalike of her get mutilated by a lion (among other things). If you haven't seen the video, here it is again:

Remember that drama? Where Gaga defended herself by saying, "At least I'm popular?"

Because that's something that someone that was a victim of "childhood torture" and "bullying" would say, right? That's something that someone that started a foundation to stop bullying would say, right?

Anyway, that happened in October 2012 - smack dab in the middle of her Born This Way Ball concert tour. You know, the one that got cancelled halfway through because of a "labral tear" in her hip that ended up being a secret broken hip that somehow no one on the staff knew about?

Maybe the people at Sony haven't been into her since then. And who could blame them?

There are some rumors flying around that Gaga will be voicing Betty Boop in an upcoming film (as well as providing music for it) but those rumors are said to be untrue. There may be a Betty Boop film in the future, but Gaga is not involved and Sony will not be either.

Oh well! Guess we'll just have to settle for seeing Gaga on American Horror Story!

Or... y'know. Not.
