The smoking-hot dance duo of Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall recently spoke with Rolling Stone, giving their frank opinion on Lady Gaga's "Perfect Illusion" and revealing that Rihanna originally rejected their demo for "Don't Let Me Down."
The duo also discuss the new music they have in the works. They've worked on "one of the dopest songs we've ever written" with Coldplay's Chris Martin, according to Pall, while Bono "rolled up to our studio, all by himself," Taggart adds, "and played us some new U2 music."
And when Rihanna rejected their demo for "Don't Let Me Down," it was OK, explained Pall, "because young unknown artists have this hunger - they're willing to work really hard." (Daya ultimately contributed vocals to the track).
It's Pall's comment about Gaga's new track "Perfect Illusion" which has Little Monsters in an uproar. The track "sucks," he's quoted as saying, before Taggart jumps in to say "She's a great artist - like, Jeff Koons made a sculpture of her..,"
Don't mess with Mother Monster. Angry Twitter uses are sharing their thoughts with the hashtag #TheChainsmokersAreOverParty.
The Chainsmokers, however, are laughing all the way to the top of the charts. Their track "Closer" featuring Halsey, leads the Billboard Hot 100 for an eighth week. It's their third top 10 hit this year following "Don't Let Me Down" (No. 3) and "Roses" (No. 6).
"Closer" notches up its ninth week at No. 1 on the Australia's singles survey, breaking the record for most weeks at No. 1 this year, previously held by Lukas Graham's "7 Years."
