    Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs feels no artistic (or fashion) kinship with or connection to Lady Gaga, despite the fact that both have "out there" styles.

    In an interview, Karen O was asked about any sort of connection to the Ma Monster, and she said, "No, no, no! I feel there's a core authenticity or originality lacking there. It's so referential," about Gaga.

    So, no, she doesn't feel like she and Gaga are cut from the same cloth. Miss O went on to say that she feels Gaga copies what she likes, but doesn't process it through a filter, making it her own. Um, okay…

    What do you think of Karen O's diss of Lady Gaga? Is the beginning of a new beef or feud? YYYs' Mosquito is out now.
