Lady Gaga has shut down criticism over her role in the upcoming Gucci biopic, House of Gucci. The actor and singer recently responded for the first time to comments made about her role as Patrizia Gucci, by Patrizia herself, making it very clear that she had absolutely zero time for it.

It all started back in March of this year when Patrizia (now Patrizia Reggiani) criticised Gaga during an interview with Italian website ANSA.

"I am rather annoyed at the fact that Lady Gaga is playing me in the new Ridley Scott film without having had the consideration and sensibility to come and meet me," she explained.

"It is not an economic question. I won't get a cent form the film. It is a question of good sense and respect," she added.

Months later, Gaga has responded to Patrizia's comments, explaining that she didn't want her interpretation to be influenced by others before shutting down the criticism in perfect Gaga style.

"I only felt that I could truly do this story justice if I approached it with the eye of a curious woman who was interested in possessing a journalistic spirit so that I could read between the lines of what was happening in the film's scenes," she explained to Vogue.

"Meaning that nobody was going to tell me who Patrizia Gucci was. Not even Patrizia Gucci."

Patrizia, the former wife of Gucci founder Maurizio Gucci, was convicted of ordering the murder of her husband in Milan back in 1995. The film will follow the crime and the corresponding fall of the House of Gucci. As such, a source close to the project claimed that producers made the decision not to arrange for Gaga and Patrizia to meet, since they were "very aware of not wanting to endorse or support the awful crime that Patrizia carried out."

House of Gucci will be released in cinemas on 26 November.
