The Chainsmokers didn’t mince words when expressing their distaste for Lady Gaga’s single “Perfect Illusion.” But the singer struck back with a simple yet effective retort.

In a recent Rolling Stone profile, Alex Pall — one member of the rising DJ duo — proclaimed, “It sucks,” when referring to the song. His partner-in-crime Drew Taggart was softer, calling Gaga ” a great artist.”


They got the message, replying to Gaga, “Haha @ladygaga RESPECT.”

Gaga’s newest album Joanne arrives Friday. She will also be Saturday Night Live‘s musical guest this weekend.
