    Lady Gaga has such a tender heart. The Mother Monster was left so distraught by the tragic death of Amy Winehouse that she says she could not speak about the situation for two days. When the news of Winehouse's death at 27 broke last week, Gaga tweeted: "Amy changed pop music forever, I remember knowing there was hope, and feeling not alone because of her. She lived jazz, she lived the blues."

    During an appearance on the gabfest known as The View on Monday, Gaga opened up a bit more and said, "I'm really so devastated and sad, I really couldn't speak for 48 hours straight. I was in such shock."

    Gaga also said she is angry at the press for portraying Winehouse as a victim of her own substance abuse, saying, "I just think the most unfortunate thing about it all is the way the media spins things, like, 'Oh, we can learn from Amy's death.' I don't feel that Amy needed to learn any lessons; I think that the lesson was the world needed to be kinder to the superstar." Oh, the Fame Game. Few master it like Gaga has.

    She also said, "Everyone was so hard on her and everything that I knew about her was that she was the most lovely, nice and kind woman."

    Gaga did compare their lives as pop stars under a media microscope, saying, "It's a very lonely life, but I think that's part of what we love about her. You can't have it both ways – you can't enjoy listening to someone sing sad songs about the blues and heartbreak and then not expect them to be truly heartbroken and expect something different from them. Sometimes I'm very sad, just like everyone watching at home; sometimes I'm very happy."
