Lady Gaga calls Anna Wintour “bitch” accidentally

During her acceptance speech at the CFDA Fashion Awards in New York on Monday, Lady Gaga revealed that she accidentally called longtime Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour “bitch.” For anyone who doesn’t know who that is, the sharp-tongued, nasty magazine editor played by Meryl Streep in The Devil Wears Prada was based on Wintour. “I can’t believe I’m allowed in here. When I was told I won this award, Anna Wintour sent me a text message,” Gaga told the crowd, adding: “She text messages.” The audience laughed appreciatively, and Gaga continued with her story. “So she sent me a text message, and it said, ‘We’re so excited to tell you [that] you won the CFDA fashion icon award.’ And I actually thought it was Anna Treblin, who was one of my very close friends and [my stylist] Nicola’s assistant, who I go out and have drinks with all the time. I have a couple Annas in my phone, so my reply was, ‘Yes, bitch, we did it.'” Gaga soon realized she hadn’t sent that message to her friend. “Quite quickly I got a reply that said, ‘How lovely, and we will all be waiting to see what you will wear,” Gaga recalled. “And then I thought, ‘Well won’t you be helping me choose what I will wear?’ And then I said, ‘Oh! it’s Anna Wintour.'” Lady Gaga recently appeared on the cover of Vogue‘s March 2011 issue.
