UK mag NME have declared her latest album to be the most pretentious in history - but Lady Gaga reckons the joke is on them.

The rock magazine called Gaga's Born This Way the 'Most Pretentious Album Ever' in a recent blog post, leaving the kooky singer's Kermit suit in a twist.

Gaga's anthemic set beat out albums by Lou Reed, Metallica and Kiss for the top spot in their "10 Most Pretentious Albums Ever" list.

"For a while Gaga was the most exciting pop star on the planet," read the blog.

"Then on Born This Way she seemed to believe in her own hype, convinced that she had a message to share. Cue an album of unwieldy 'anthems' that couldn’t mask the fact the fun had left the building."

Gaga is also up for 'Villain Of The Year' and 'Worst Album' for Born This Way at the NME Awards next week - do you think they're being a bit hard on her?
