MANILA, Philippines – Lady Gaga, one of the most followed celebrities on Twitter, has indefinitely shut down her account.
The international sensation’s picture is now of a Twitter egg along with a bio which reads: “This interface has been shutdown temporarily. Please check back for updates.”
Tweets posted after February 6 have also been deleted. Her last post refers to her upcoming album “ARTPOP,” slated for release this year.
We could be caught, were both convicted criminals of thought. -Sex Dreams #ARTPOP— Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) February 6, 2013
Reports by Huffington Post reveal the remaining tweets came at a time when the singer was forced to cancel her “Born This Way Ball” tour due to surgery for a hip injury.
After a legal battle over who discovered the star, Gaga took legal action to prevent possibly unflattering personal information from going public.
The Mother Monster, as her fans call her, once reigned as the most followed celebrity on Twitter. In January 2013, teen pop artist Justin Bieber surpassed her number of followers. To date, Bieber has around 41.5 million followers. – With reports from Ira Agting/Rappler.com
