Lady Gaga And Susan Boyle To Collab?

Lady Gaga And Susan Boyle To Collab?

By Robert Paul Reyes


"British pop star Lady Gaga has become a supporter of Scottish singing sensation Susan Boyle and wants to collaborate with her.

`I love Susan Boyle. She is my woman of the year. She has achieved more in this year than most artistes will in a lifetime,` quoted Gaga as saying." Read more

There have been rumors of a Lady Gaga/Madonna collaboration, but that would be a big drag. (no pun intended) Lady Gaga and Madge are too similar, and performing a duet would bring nothing new to the table.

But Susan Boyle and Lady Gaga together on stage at the same time would be a an event of cosmic significance. These are two extremely talented signers, but they have completely different approaches to entertaining an audience.

The dowdy and shy Susan Boyle relies entirely on her talent to win over an audience, Lady Gaga relies on pyrotechnics, outrageous costumes and a double portion of camp to rock the house.

Boyle thinks that camp means roasting hot dogs and telling stories around a bonfire. But the hipster and the spinster would make beautiful music together.

If you strip away all the artifice and take away her auto tune Lady Gaga is a very gifted singer, and I would pay a gazillion bucks for a ticket to a Lady Gaga/Susan Boyle concert. It would be worth it just to see Lady Gaga`s legion of gay fans party with Susan Boyle`s more conservative fans.
