LADY GAGA, known for her outrageous pop-art fashion and performances, as well as her passionate activism for civil rights and advocacy for women, has spoken up about her respect for Metal.
Independent of the UK quotes, “…the culture of the music, the poetry that’s so powerful, that whenever the fans come together they unite in the essence of what Iron Maiden is all about.
I always used to say to people, when they would say, ‘Oh, she’s the next Madonna.’ No, I’m the next Iron Maiden.”
In regards to her admiration for Maiden, she explained, “”Some people really don’t know the importance of metal and the scope of it lowphlq. Those guys were filling stadiums, and they still are.”
She is no poser. Rob Halford, the ‘Metal God’ himself, had once discussed collaborating with Gaga.
Gaga has recently announced that she will be performing with Metallica at the Grammys this year. Details regarding the performance have not yet been released.
