(Newser) – Jerry Seinfeld didn't mince words when talking about Lady Gaga, code name Lady Gag-Gag. "This woman is a jerk. I hate her," said (joked?) Seinfeld during a radio interview last night. "I can’t believe they put her in my box, which I paid for." That box, incidentally, was where she spent the end of the now-infamous June 10 Mets game in which she stripped down to her underwear and flipped everyone off.

Seinfeld was a little more mellow at the interview's start, notes the New York Post, saying, "I wish her the best"—but then he added, "you take one 'A' off of that and you've got gag." Maybe it's just generational? "I'm older, I'm 56. I look at Lady Gaga the way Keith Hernandez watches these kids when they pull the pocket out, they wear the inside-out pocket. Do you think he understands that? He can't understand that. That's a new game, that's kids." Listen to the interview here.
