Lady Gaga Fired Her Director Via Email! Laurieann Gibson, famed choreographer and Lady Gaga’s former creative director, says Gaga once fired her by email because the people around Gaga thought “I was taking too much spotlight.”

Gibson, 51, helped build Gaga, 34, into a superstar with her debut album “The Fame Monster” and was the creative brains behind the singer’s “Monster Ball” tour.
Gibson eventually started creating for other stars like Katy Perry and even dipped her toes into the fashion world with Naomi Campbell.
But in her new book: “Dance Your Dance: 8 Steps to Unleash Your Passion and Live,” Gibson describes how others in Gaga’s camp wanted her to focus solely on the “Born This Way” star.
Gibson told Page Six, “At that point, I was fully immersed into continuing to build what was now a number-one iconic brand … and then to be able to collaborate with the greatest model on earth… [I was] extending my creativity far past music. That version of me was euphorically happy and the beginning of me really understanding my creative ability and how it would impact pop culture.”
But in 2011, her relationship with Gaga soured and they parted ways due to “Yessigans” — yes people — around the singer.
She writes in the book, “I’m convinced the falling-out between Lady Gaga and me… wasn’t about the two of us at all.
“Instead, some of the people around her thought I shouldn’t be working with other artists … They thought that I was taking too much spotlight — even though I didn’t want her spotlight,” she wrote.
“Just as I realized this chatter was happening, Gaga fired me. In an email. I’m not even sure she wrote it herself,” Gibson writes.
