Last week, a new Lana Del Rey track called “Black Beauty” leaked — and has since been removed — but even more unauthorized material has surfaced. According to CoS, another cut called “So Legit” was also floating around and it’s brimming with blatant vitriol for Stefani Germanotta, bka Lady Gaga. The song includes lyrics like, “Stefani, you suck / I know you’re selling twenty million / wish they could have seen you / when we booed you off in Williamsburg.” If you listen to the quality of the song, which has been archived here, it seems pretty clear that this is probably not a demo intended for a future studio track, but probably private material Del Rey had no intention to be consumed publicly. While there isn’t much information about a pre-fame friendship, both are the same age group and attended college in New York City (Gaga, NYU; Del Rey, Fordham). Gaga has yet to comment, but her fans the Little Monsters — not to be confused with Videogum’s Monsters commentariat — have gone totally wild on Del Rey’s Facebook and Twitter. Check out the audio and full lyrics below.
You were the freak king of the piercing shop
All the girls thought they could sing, but they’re really not shit
I don’t get it
You’re looking like a man, you’re talking like a baby
How the fuck is your song in a Coke commercial, crazy?
I don’t get it
Your taste once exquisite
What happened to Brooklyn, what happened to New York?
What happened to my scene, what happened to punk rock, rock?
You called me the queen of the downtown scene, babe
How the fuck would you go switch it up and then replace me?
I don’t get it, I’m so legit
Tell me, was it ’cause I wasn’t platinum in jewels?
That perhaps you thought I was a little bit even uncool
Kid, was that it?
Stefani, you suck, I know you’re selling twenty million
Wish they could have seen you when we booed you off in Williamsburg
You’re hurt, I know my words don’t hurt, yeah
Oh, girl, I see you walking ’round in your pearls
Thinking that you’re number one
You’re so funny, ’cause honey, you’re not
What happened to Brooklyn, the last frontier?
They said you could make it anywhere if you can make it here
But where, no magic in the air
What happened to Brooklyn, what happened to our scene, baby?
Have we all gone Gaga crazy?
Remember when the streets used to be dangerous and we were born bad
And we were born bad?
Punk rock, punk rock
The boys used to punch each other in the face and girls were walking around wasted
And everyone had a good night, come back in sunlight
Punk rock, rock, rock
