Lady Gaga brought more attention to yesterday's Mets game than the players themselves when she popped up at Citi Field and proceeded to get photographed flipping the bird to anyone and everyone looking her way.
Many have called the gesture obscene and/or "un-ladylike," but Gaga said on Twitter that she was simply being a New Yorker and showing love for her hometown.
On Friday, she tweeted, "A middle finger is more New York than a corporate ambush. I bleed for my hometown, and I'd die for my fans," followed by, "I guess I'm just a Bronx cheer kind of girl."
The Mets also reportedly issued a statement of apology to Jerry Seinfeld, who was dragged into the situation because Gaga was sent to his luxury box after she began to create a scene.
"We deeply regret that Jerry Seinfeld has been associated with this matter and have apologized to him," the statement reads. "The use of Jerry Seinfeld's suite was unauthorized and unknown to him at the time. We made a quick decision to place Lady Gaga and her group in the private suite because of issues related to her visit."
