Comedian Jerry Seinfeld doesn’t think Lady Gaga’s antics in his VIP box during a recent Mets-Padres game are a laughing matter.

And despite reports that he’s angry and said she’s a jerk, the “Seinfeld” star simply finds her boring!

“She’s talented. I don’t know why she’s doling this stuff. Oh please, wake me when it’s over,” Seinfeld said during an interview on WFAN with radio host Steve Somers.

The funny man passionately responded, “This woman is a jerk. I hate her,” when first asked about the scandalous singer during the Monday interview.

But Seinfeld was clearly kidding as he talked about Lady Gaga creating a stir during the Mets game. Lady Gaga, dressed in Not Much created a ruckus and was moved from front row seats to Seinfeld’s empty VIP box.

Seinfeld hammed it up on the radio when asked about it.

“I can’t believe they put her in my box, which I paid for,” he said in mock anger.  “You give people the finger and you get upgraded? Is that the world we’re living in now?”

When first asked about the incident, Seinfeld said about Lady Gaga, “I wish her all the best…you can take one ‘’A’ off that and get gag.”

He did seem genuinely perplexed by the Lady Gaga phenomenon, at one point saying: “I don’t know what these young people think or how they promote their careers.”

But it was clear he wasn’t angry and his true feelings seemed to show at the end of the interview when he indicated her antics left him yawning.

He also said he doesn’t believe any publicity is good publicity. Addressing the Gaga situation he said: “People talk about you need exposure. You could die of exposure. I don’t understand how this is good for her.”
