Lady Gaga on Taylor Swift: 'I Like Her'
While some may like to pit pop stars against each other, these chart-toppers have nothing but love for one another.
Like so many stories involving A-listers, it all started at an awards show.
“It was at the AMAs or something – her and I were sitting next to each other, and she goes, ‘Oh my god! I love ARTPOP! And I love ‘Applause!’ ‘Applause is my favorite song!’ ” Gaga told Stern of Swift’s fan-girling over her third LP.
Not that that the singer took T-Swift seriously – at first.
“I was thinking, ‘Yeah, yeah, yeah, this chick is full of s–––,’ right?”
Then Mother Monster got a call from her stylist friend, who was working at a shoot with the “Blank Space” singer.
“He goes, ‘Taylor Swift is here “blasting ARTPOP so loud, and she is dancing, and she’s posing’ “Gaga recalled.
“I said to myself, ‘I like this girl.’ You know why? Because she said the same thing to my face as she said behind my back,” Gaga said. “Yeah, I like her.”
Could a collaboration be on the way? Time will tell, but Swift isn’t the only Taylor Gaga loves – the “G.U.Y.” singer was happy to dish about her longtime boyfriend, actor Taylor Kinney, who was on the radio show, too.
“I really can’t imagine being with anyone other than who I’m with right now,” she told Stern, noting they connect over their creative work.
But the singer – who’s set to tour with Tony Bennett to promote their jazz duets album, Cheek to Cheek – dodged questions about whether or not the Chicago Fire star has proposed yet. But she said she’d be happy to settle down with him when the time comes.
“He is the right guy,” she said. “I have that feeling. I just know it.”
