Lady Gaga Sent Twitter Into A Meltdown After Asking "What's Fortnight?"

"Sis thought this was Google."

Lady Gaga is one talented lady. She knows how to write award-winning bangers, she’s an incredible actress, a style chameleon and she can entertain a crowd of thousands wearing sky-high armadillo heels. 

One thing Gaga isn’t so well-versed in? Fortnite.

Earlier today, Gaga took to Twitter to ask one simple question: what’s fortnight? 

*cue Internet meltdown*

Catch up on the latest Smallzy’s Surgery podcast:

Not only did Gaga spell Fortnite’s name wrong, but she’s proven that when it comes to viral games, she is well and truly out of the loop.

Gaga’s fans have taken to her tweet to express their shock, horror, and support. One wrote, “I refuse to believe you have been this out of the loop for 3 years now,” and another took the opportunity to demand another album with the tweet, “it’s another word for two weeks, aka the longest we should have to wait for the lead single to LG6.”

One fan was confused as to why Gaga felt the need to throw the question out into the Twittersphere and wrote, “sis thought this was google.”

While most Twitter users can’t believe the singer isn’t across the popular game, others ran to her defence and quite literally explained Fortnite to Lady Gaga. 

It’s no wonder Gaga is asking about Fortnite. This week, the game was hit by a massive asteroid and enveloped in a black hole. Luckily, gamers didn’t have to wait too long and the game returned with a trailer for Chapter 2. 

Now the Lady Gaga Fortnite question is out in the world, is she going to jump on the bandwagon and incorporate a ‘gaming’ aesthetic into her ever changing look? Will Gaga become glued to her screen and add ‘gamer’ to her already impressive resume?

…Or will she take this information with a pinch of salt? Seems most likely.
