Journalist Lindsay Crouse revealed that she found out after Lady Gaga posted a photo with her ex Michael Polansky to Instagram, and she was bombarded with texts from her friends while she was sat at her desk eating grapes at work.

She wrote: "I don’t follow my ex on social media. We were ‘friends’ on Facebook. Then we were ‘in a relationship’ on Facebook.

"After we broke up, I noticed I was ‘blocked’ on Facebook. And then we moved on. I hadn’t googled him in forever (I promise). But this month I knew everything about his new relationship status, within hours of when it was disclosed."

"If you’ve ever googled an ex’s new partner (be honest) you’ve probably played a certain game with yourself. You’re either just curious – which is healthy of you – or you want to know how you compare… How do you compare yourself with Lady Gaga? Lady Gaga is amazing."

She also said: "If Lady Gaga can do what she wants, and even expand on what she wants, why not me, too? I went to a nice store I’d never been inside before and I tried something on. The clerk asked me what the occasion was."

Linsday's article has gone viral, with many praising her for her amazing reaction to his ex's new girlfriend.
