Lady Gaga has entered the Fortnite chat by sledging Ninja, one of the world's most famous streamers, on Twitter.
It all started when Lady Gaga asked the world a simple question on Twitter: "What's Fortnight?"

She later tagged Ninja in the post, asking the very meta question: "who are you?"
. @Ninja who are you

Ninja then told Lady Gaga to "ask Drake", who joined him and Travis Scott for a record-breaking Fortnite stream back in 2018. But by then, the damage was irreparable.

It's not actually clear whether Lady Gaga was trolling or genuinely wondering what all the fuss was about years after Fortnite first exploded onto the scene (my money's on the former). Ninja's bruised ego aside, it's pretty encouraging how the gaming and celebrity worlds are crossing over more frequently than ever before.
Between Ninja's recent appearance on the US version of The Masked Singer and Chrissy Teigen and Blink-182's love for the cheeky Untitled Goose Game, gaming is finally infiltrating a space where it should have been all along.
When Ninja announced he was leaving Twitch for Microsoft's Mixer, everyone waited with bated breath to see if Twitch would crumble into oblivion with the loss of one of its biggest stars. That obviously didn't happen but the streaming data, released by StreamElements, is showing another interesting aspect to the battle over game streaming.
