We imagine Lady Gaga hasn't been able to stop smiling since her Golden Globes win last week, which in her own words was 'one of the greatest moments of my life'. 

As if that weren't quite enough to be getting on with, she was then nominated for an actual Oscar in the 'Best Original Song' category, for the track 'Til It Happens To You', which she co-wrote, and which appeared in documentary The Hunting Ground.

In a series of tweets sent last night, she implied that co-writer Diane Warren actually penned the whole thing, and that Gaga's name is only attached because she's a celeb. Gulp. 

"I credit Diane for writing this song, it is her experience her pain her words," Linda tweeted. "I love Gaga so much respect and love this song that has nothing to do with anything. Why did Gaga get credit? Maybe because … Diane wanted to ensure her support in promoting the song. Gaga is a very smart business women she knew a song written by Diane Warren."

She's since had second thoughts about her accusations, and later deleted the tweets, apologising for her comments. 

"My sincere apologies. I made a mistake to comment. I wasn't in the room when ['Til It Happens to You'] was being written," she tweeted. "More importantly, I wish the focus to remain on the great importance of the song and the message of the film."

Gaga has yet to respond to these accusations.
