Lady Gaga has responded to Piers Morgan's controversial claims that she and Madonna—who in recent years have opened up about their experiences being raped—are using post-traumatic stress as "the latest celebrity accessory."

On Dec. 10, the British host shared his thoughts on Twitter saying, "I remain skeptical about Madonna & Lady Gaga's claims," adding that, "I come from a big military family. It angers me when celebrities start claiming 'PTSD' about everything to promote themselves." He questioned the validity of Gaga and Madonna's trauma saying, "Lady Gaga & Madonna have both made ALLEGATIONS of rape many years after the event. No police complaint, no charges, no court case."

Gaga has since responded to the host, saying she's worked with "Joe Biden on helping educate people about why women don't report," how PTSD is "not just a 'military' disorder" and suggested an interview.

Morgan seemed down with the idea, saying, "I rather admire Lady Gaga for agreeing to an interview after my criticisms. Should be a fascinating debate," before adding, "I'll press my meat suit." That sly little addition didn't slip past the singer who added, "If you continue to shame me in the process of kindly agreeing to interview w/ u I'll happily do the interview with someone else."

In the best case scenario, any type of interview or debate between Morgan and Gaga will shed important insight and information on this tough topic. Let's hope for that, yeah?
