Superstar musician and actress Lady Gaga seemingly snubbed reality star Caitlyn Jenner at a recent event the two attended. Jenner approached Gaga to ask why they hadn’t met at their local Starbucks, and Gaga’s response was what fans have called “frosty.”
Fans also think that Gaga’s treatment of Jenner could be related to Jenner’s famous anti-gay stances and similar controversies. Read on to find out more about what Gaga said to Jenner and the theory behind her treatment of the former Olympian.
Lady Gaga Told Caitlyn Jenner That She Has Changed ‘Baristas’
Jenner and Gaga bumped into each other outside Elton John’s AIDS Foundation 30th annual Oscar viewing party. Jenner then stopped the “House of Gucci” star to mention that she had not seen her at their local Starbucks coffee shop for quite a while.
The video of their interaction was posted online by journalist Bahman Kalbasi, and it captured Jenner asking Gaga, “Are you spending time around Malibu anymore?” to which she replied, “Yes.”
Jenner then said, “I haven’t seen you at the Starbucks in a while,” and Gaga replied, with what looked like an irritated and disgusted expression on her face, “I’ve switched baristas.” She then walked away, and the two made their way inside the hall separately.
The Video Went Viral

Kalbasi’s video soon went viral, with millions of people describing Gaga’s statements to Jenner as a modern version of Mariah Carey’s viral “I don’t know her” diss. Many people reposted the video on Twitter, and there were many comments on the interaction.
One tweet about the video read, “I’ve switched Baristas’ will now be my excuse for everything,” while another person wrote, “I’ve switched baristas’ is literally the most polite way of saying ‘If I ever see you again it’ll be too soon.’”

More viral tweets on the interaction include “Not Caitlin [sic] Jenner telling Gaga ‘I haven’t seen you at the Starbucks in a while’ PLS” and “The look of absolute disdain she gives Caitlyn when she says ‘I’ve…switched baristas.’ I love her so much.” So far, neither Jenner nor Gaga have publicly reacted to the video.
Fans Think The Snub Is Due To Jenner’s Perceived Anti-LGBT Stance
Many fans have also expressed that Gaga’s snub to Jenner may be due to the former Olympian’s famous anti-gay statements. The statements trace back to an interview Jenner had with Ellen DeGeneres on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” where she said she’s a traditionalist and doesn’t believe in same-sex marriage.
Jenner’s statements received a lot of negative attention, and people criticized her for her insensitivity. She later tried to clear up the air during an interview with Diane Sawyer, explaining that her statements were an evolving process, and said, “I am 100 percent behind gay marriage. Let’s clear that up right now.”
Jenner also posted a statement on her website, which read, “Like many people, there was a time when I didn’t realize how important it is for gay couples to have the right to get married. But after hearing from my gay friends and learning more about the hardships they faced because of discrimination, it became clear to me that everyone should be able to marry the person they love.”
Lady Gaga Skipped The Oscars Red Carpet
Gaga was at the viewing party after she skipped the Oscars red carpet. However, she later showed up at the awards ceremony to present the award for Best Picture with Liza Minnelli. Fans think her decision to skip the Oscars red carpet is because she was snubbed for a “House of Gucci” nomination.
Gaga arrived at the Elton John’s AIDS Foundation 30th annual Oscar viewing party in a beautiful pale yellow tulle gown and posed for pictures with John’s sons, Zachary and Elijah, to whom she is also a godmother. The “Rocket Man” singer himself did not attend his own party.
Despite her Oscar nomination snub, Gaga has still received a lot of accolades for her performance as socialite-turned-criminal Patrizia Reggiani in the recently released “House of Gucci.” She recently won an award at the New York Film Critics Circle for the movie.
