Lady Gaga has tweeted about the 'overflow of hate' that has been sent her way since releasing her latest album ARTPOP.

The Applause singer tweeted, "I put so much love into my music, into my shows, I make it all for you. I'll never understand the overflow of hate sent my way.

"Or maybe thats what entertainment is now. It's more fun to point & laugh than appreciate the artist. I'll keep rehearing my steps #showbiz."

The star then directly tweeted at Billboard saying, "@billboard you're included actually. In todays industry, u should be supportive of music period. Why target a passionate + dedicated artist?"
