Lady Gaga Accidentally Calls Anna Wintour “B****” in Text Message

Lady Gaga should probably add Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour’s name to her contacts list.

When the 25-year-old “Edge of Glory” singer appeared at the CFDA Fashion Awards on Monday, Gaga shared an embarrassing story involving the famed fashionista during her acceptance speech.

“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 said, pausing for dramatic effect. “She text messages.”

After the crowd cheered, Gaga continued to recount her awkward conversation with Wintour. “So she sent me a text message, and it said, ‘We’re so excited to tell you 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.’”

“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.’”

Fortunately for Gaga, Wintour, 61, seems to be a fan of her bold demeanor; the singer appeared in a December 2009 photo spread and covered the fashion bible’s March 2011 issue.

Anna Wintour Talks Digital Fashion

After winning a Webby award for vogue.com for people’s choice in fashion, Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour sat down with CNN to talk about the fashion industry and new media.

On Print vs. Digital:

“I think what we bring to the website is really what we bring to the print version of Vogue, which is our access and our authority and very tough editing. I think the website compliments the print version of the magazine and vise versa. I think they both offer very different experiences to the reader. One is a fantastic visual experience where you look at the photography and read the articles that you can’t see anywhere else. And you can carry it around with you and enjoy it for months at a time. And I think you go to the website for a very different experience — instant information, access…it’s much more instantaneous, yet still edited with the Vogue eye.”

On the transition of fashion on the internet:

“I remember when we tried to get seats for people at the shows. The internet people were put like in the twentieth row, if they were lucky, at a Chanel show. And we were told things like, you can only put I’ve looks up because we don’t want anything to be copied. And then you fast forward to today and for whatever reason if we don’t put up a collection on the website they’re calling us up to complain. So, you know, obviously we learned with the internet explosion. I mean, we were as naïve as everyone else but we saw it grow. We saw it grow when we were at Style.com and then when we branched off onto our own website, you know, it was even more of an engrossing and interesting experience.”
