Lady Gaga isn’t a fan of people who lip sync during their concerts and she doesn’t think too highly of people who feel the need to fake out their fans when they’re paying big bucks to see them do their thing onstage.

I think if you pay money for a ticket to see a show that the artist should f- have some pipes and sing their records for you.”
