Lady Gaga frequently features on the list of celebs known for hating Christmas. The pop sensation, affectionately called “Mother Monster” by her fans, shocked the world when she admitted to hating Christmas. According to reports, Gaga hates Christmas because she is often alone during the holiday, making her feel miserable. The statement came during her concert at the O2 Arena in London on 16th December 2010.

“I hate the holidays. I’m alone and miserable you f**king stuffed little toy.”

Gaga made the above statement after a fan tossed her a stuffed Santa Claus toy while she was on stage. Gaga bit the doll’s head off before proclaiming her hatred for Christmas. The clip of Gaga biting off Santa’s head led to comparisons with the Grinch, and the video is still making rounds on the internet today as proof of Gaga’s dismay towards Christmas. However, Gaga was reportedly kidding during the concert and made up with her fans before the show ended.

Lady Gaga’s hatred for Christmas became well publicized after her 2010 concert. However, in 2008, Gaga released a Christmas-themed song titled Christmas Tree, which remains quite popular. Furthermore, in 2011, Gaga collaborated with Barneys New York to launch Gaga’s Workshop, which featured several holiday-themed products.

While promoting Gaga’s Workshop, the singer-songwriter did an interview with Women’s Wear Daily in 2011. During the interview, Gaga admitted that she has always been a Christmas person.

There would be presents waiting for us. My mom would make a quiche, and we would hang out all morning and open presents. 

In the interview, Gaga stated that she celebrated Christmas in a family-oriented way and attended Christmas mass with her family as a child. The statement, made almost a year after Gaga proclaimed disdain for the holiday, strongly suggests Gaga has enjoyed Christmas more than she hated it.
