Eminem has defended his defended the Lady Gaga diss on his new track, while at the same time speaking up for the pop singer.

The rapper tackles Gaga on the track 'A Kiss' with his new project Bad Meets Evil, a collaboration with fellow Detroit rapper Royce da 5'9". The track addresses the persistent online jibes, fuelled by the singer herself in the 'Telephone' video, over her gender.

The lyrics go: "Tell Lady Gaga she can quit her job at the post office/She's still a male lady/Wouldn't fuck with her dick/You heard it/The verdict's in".

Eminem has now told Fuse TV that the lines are "all in fun". He said: "I think Lady Gaga, as an artist you know, she's undeniable. That was one of them things written where sometimes I get a joke in my head and I kinda want to share it with the world.

"So it was just one of them things man, and it's, you know, it’s all in fun. It's hip-hop."

Bad Meets Evil's EP 'Hell: The Sequel' was released this week.
