You may not automatically expect Lady Gaga to publicly state her affection for Kanye West, but the pop star has done just that.

Following West's hospitalisation earlier this week, many artists have come out in support of him, sending their best wishes and expressing their concern.

Gaga took to Twitter to send her love, saying 'It's not funny to joke about someone's possible or not possible mental illness' and calling the rapper a 'GREAT artist'.
