    The Oscar-winning singer posed the question to her legion of Twitter followers, most of whom assumed she meant Fortnite, a game enjoyed by millions of players which had temporarily gone offline earlier this week before being reborn as Fortnite Chapter 2.

    The question was immediately noticed by several brands, including IGN, who explained that “fortnight” – as it was spelled – means “fourteen nights” – two weeks. But even though there were some jokes about two weeks, that’s not what all the memes were about.

    “Fortnight” made internet mad over the close resemblance to “Fortnite” - the popular multiplayer videogame which had recently got another spin with the explosive end of Season 10 making the game temporarily unplayable. And one of the most popular comments was left by the top not-Twitch-but-Mixer streamer Ninja, who suggested that Gaga should “call him” to play together, referencing her song.

    It seems that Ninja’s response, supported by his crowded audience, took Gaga by surprise as she addressed the streamer personally asking who he was. The streamer, whose real name is Richard Tyler Blevins, advised her to ask Drake for clarification.

    The official Twitch account was quick to say that they got some “friends” to show her what the game is about, and the official Twitter gaming account compared Fortnite to Gaga’s own album ARTPOP.

    Most users, however, had a fun time giving witty, but not very accurate, answers.
