Lady Gaga and Calvin Harris engaged in a brief but brutal Twitter feud yesterday (29 Octover, 2012) after claims from the 'We Found Love' star that he turned down the offer to remix her tracks in 2008.
The US star took offence to Calvin Harris' claim that he was asked to produce tracks for the star four years ago but turned them down because he wasn't a fan of the songs he was sent. Harris spoke of the potential collaboration during an interview on BBC Breakfast.
Lady Gaga took offence at the suggestions, and took to Twitter to discuss the matter in public.
"never even emailed you @calvinharris I guess it's hard to believe I write + produce my music. cuz I'm a woman I don't know about EDM right?" Gage tweeted, prompting a response shortly afterwards from Harris.
The Scottish dance star responded: "@ladygaga no your label emailed me. I always make sure I say Im a fan when asked about it, I apologise if I offended u, wasn't the intention."
Within moments, Gaga replied to Harris, changing her tone to say: "@CalvinHarris thanks for the apology &explaining. My apologies too. Congratulations on your album. Wish you well. Cheers."

The brief clash was still enough for Harris to feel the weight of a zillion 'Little Monsters' come crashing down on his shoulders, as he returned to Twitter half an hour later to reveal:
"Jeez you turn down one remix in 2008 and next thing the whole world's on your back," comparing Gaga fans to a religious sect, adding: "The illuminati's after me lol. Never mind I'll just keep making tracks."
