Lady Gaga has issued a statement following her words of mourning about the death of friend and Born This Way muse Rick "Zombie Boy" Genest. Earlier in the week on social media, she expressed that his "suicide... is beyond devastating," but she has since deleted those tweets, now saying that she might have jumped to conclusions.
"Out of respect for Rick's family, Rick & his legacy I apologize if I spoke too soon as there was no witnesses or evidence to support any conclusion for the cause of his death," she wrote on Twitter Saturday night (Aug. 4). "I in no way meant to draw an unjust conclusion. My deepest condolences to his entire family and friends."
