Amanda Knox is here to let Lady Gaga know that even though fame may be tough, it’s nowhere near as tough as actually being locked up.
Fame is prison
— Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) October 25, 2019
“Fame is prison,” Gaga tweeted out late Thursday night with no context.
While many fans seemed to like the singer’s philosophical insight, Knox did not.
The 32-year-old responded to Gaga, “I hear you, but…prison is prison.”
Knox, who was convicted then acquitted of brutally murdering her college roomate, Meredith Kercher, spent almost 4 years in an Italian prison back in 2007.

Fans of Knox, who has become a TV personality and activist, immediately showed support and agreed with the star.
“Until you have actually been to prison. I am not sure you would say that. Fame is not prison, it may be like prison metaphorically but it is NOT prison. I will take prison fame over prison any day of the week.”
Another person simply stated, “Prison is prison. Fame is luxury.”
Fans of Mother Monster also seemed a bit put off by the elitist comment, and felt Gaga could be out of her “prison” if she chose.
One fan wrote to the star, “Given the modern attention span, you could be OUT of that prison in about 2 news cycles if you genuinely wanted to be.”
They added, “My conclusion is you wanna be there.”
The 33-year-old Academy Award winner has not yet responded to the criticism.
These days, Amanda Knox lives in Seattle with her husband, Christopher Robinson.
She became a bestselling author with her memoir, “Waiting To Be Heard,” and hosts the show, “The Scarlet Letter Reports” on Facebook Watch.
