It was supposed to be a happy moment for One Direction that quickly went sour.
The boys accepted their MTV Video Music Award for “Song of the Summer," beating out Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" and Daft Punk's "Get Lucky," thanks to Directioners heavily voting for “Best Song Ever.” When they stepped on stage to claim the moon man, they were greeted with boos from the Brooklyn crowd!
While some may have found it funny, one person who didn’t was Lady Gaga! Throughout the show, viewers could go on MTV.com and watch the audience react to whatever was happening on stage and many saw that Gaga was very offended that 1D was getting such a harsh response. She was seen mouthing that she was upset, stood up and walked out of her seat. Once the fellas were backstage talking to the “Thank You Cam,” Gaga strutted up to them and really told them how she felt.

"If I did hear what I heard out there, I just want to tell you that you deserve every bit of success that you have and don't you dare let those people boo you," Gaga told them. "I want to leave right now. I don't even want to stay anymore because I don't want to be in a room where people are booing. "I just want to tell you that deserve every bit of success that you have.”
1D took to Twitter today to thank Gaga for her kind words with Louis writing, "@ladygaga is a f---ing legend! Such a nice woman !!" and Liam adding, "Morning everyone what a night yesterday was would like to thank @ladygaga for her support yesterday and her extraordinary outfits."
