Lady Gaga's Twitter Account Hacked

By Juliana Kenny April 27, 2011

Spanish-laden messages appeared on Lady Gaga's tweet feed early this morning including busted links to Spanish YouTube-related sites, a @mention to herself and Latin American pop star Shakira, and a hashtag leading to a Spanish horoscope account. 


Gaga's latest tweet before the hackers got in was some five hours ago tearfully noting the end of her extensive global concert tour: “Gagavision no.44 coming 2morrow night, commemorating the last American MonsterBall. Hurts to write this. The stage is my home. #BornThisWay.” 

The hackers posted two tweets containing the bum links that may make sense to Spanish speakers, but intrigued her near 10 million followers anyway. Warning, do not click on the links: “VIDEO PROHIBIDO LADY GAGA @ladygaga http://bit.ly/ez6cFM ganar dinero navegando” and “TAROT de shakira http://bit.ly/gnHb0v clarividente de @shakira #horoscopo ganar dinero navegando.”

Just ten minutes following the strange tweets, the real Gaga posted a retort, which included a broken hashtag making a reference to The Apostles (we assume she's talking about Jesus’ buddies from The Bible). She tried to fix by retweeting a few seconds later: “Whoever is hacking my Twitter must answer to 10 million monsters and Twitter police. #Don'tMakeMeCallTheApostles.”

I'm sure those four would have a thing or two to say about it... stay tuned here for updates!
