The 'You & I' singer warns fans to "trust the artist" when it comes to hearing and criticising new music.

Lady Gaga has hit out at blogs for criticising artists and their music and has urged people only to listen to "fans and music scholars".

The 'Marry The Night' singer took to Twitter to post about her new song 'Applause' leaking online after hearing early blog criticism of the song, and says fans should "trust the artist" before listening to anyone else.

"Don't focus on ANY blogger criticism," Lady Gaga tweeted over the weekend. "I have been a producer/songwriter/musician for over 10 years.

"Trust the artist, bloggers are not critics," she explained. "The fans + music scholars are the best critics because they know the artist intimately. 

"#STOPHarassingTheArtist we are here to entertain you," she defiantly added.
