Everyone is talking about Lady Gaga's epic Oscars performance. So many people who thought the singer was just a pop star were proven wrong when she stepped on stage and belted out a beautiful Sound of Music Tribute that even Julie Andrews loved.

The day after the show, headlines were singing Gaga's praises. "Lady Gaga's performance at the Oscars could redefine her career," a TIME headline read. "Her Sound of Music medley at the Oscars highlighted her underlying talent, just at the right time," The Atlantic raved. ET Online said she "slayed" it in a super complimentary post about the performance.

We agree with all of those assesments, but one person who doesn't is Shonda Rhimes. "That was not okay," she tweeted after Gaga's performance. "I mean, Idina [Menzel] is there. She is right there. RIGHT THERE. And oh dear God, Julie [Andrews] had to hear that. #Oscars2015."

Of course, there were a lot of people who disagreed with her, including one who pointed out, "wow, missing the point. The unexpected Gaga made the moment." Her response?


Hey, everyone is entitled to their opinion. At least she acknowledged that everyone else thought it was great. So far, Gaga hasn't responded to the critique, but as John Mayer pointed out, she's an artist and she's used to the fact that every single person isn't going to love every single thing she does, so she's probably totally fine with it.
