Gaga on Clinton: Leave her alone

(CNN) - When it comes to fashion, Lady Gaga has Hillary Clinton's back.

Gaga defended the secretary of state Monday in response to recent criticism by "Project Runway" star Tim Gunn, who stirred controversy when he made fun of Clinton's pantsuit-heavy wardrobe last week.

"Why must she dress that way? I think she's confused about her gender," Gunn said on "Lopez Tonight."

But in an appearance on "The View" Monday, Gaga said Gunn was being a "bully."

"You know, I think Hillary Clinton has more things to worry about than her hemline."

    Kudos to Lady Gaga. Hillary is too busy serving this country to worry about a small minded and bully like Tim Gunn.

    Dear Tim Gunn,

    Ms. Clinton is not an actress or a model. She's the U.S. Secretary of State. She probably wears pants often because they are comfortable and travel well, and she can wear different blouses, jackets, and shoes with each pair. Kinda like men do with suits and different ties and shirts. Makes perfect sense to me. That's called a double standard, bone head.

    Just goes to show you that even nelly queens like Tim Gunn can be heartily distasteful as any straight man! HC has her own dress karma, so just chill Mr. Gunn!

    Ms. Clinton must feel all warm and fuzzy after hearing Lady Gaga come to her defense. Such is the state of media news in America circa 2011.

    Thanks, Lady G. I agree and I'm glad you had a chance to say it.

    The last person who should be defending anyone on their fashion sence is Lady Gayguy.

    Hillary Clinton is one of the most powerful women in the world, Tim Gunn, is a oissant.

    Good girl, GaGa! I'm already a fan of your music, even at the young age of 65, and you are gaining my respect as a person!

    first of all Tim Gunn has no taste and you can tell that by looking at the his wardrobe and second he actually thinks that his opinion matters and that people like him....someone needs to tell him that he has a big head for his body...seriously the size of his head is too big and his so called "career" is dependant on who he .....(you can add the rest)...Hillary on the other hand is Strong,smart, and a leader and she is doing a great job and hopefully one day we can call her our president but tim all i can say about you is that you are sheer pure visual rape.

    Good for Gaga. She likes to show her assets but do not think all women have to. I don't like Clinton but glad Gaga stood up for her. I wonder if Gunn was misquoted. He's usually very open minded and he of all people normally do not discuss gender issues.

    I think it's a sexist thing to worry about what she's wearing. You wouldn't worry about a man wearing the same color pant suit, just as a for instance. What she wears isn't important, it's the work she's doing. I know a lot of republicans, as well as the dems you would think would appreciate the job she's doing, and everyone thinks she's doing a stand-up job. We need to get over this celebrity driven sort of vanity.

    Thank you Lady Gaga, you speak the truth because those unfounded comments made by Gunn are unwarranted and ignorant.
