Michael Jackson Wanted To Record Duet With Pop Tart Lady Gaga
"Michael Jackson loved collaborating with other artists. But there is one rumored hermaphrodite he never had a chance to work with but wanted to: Lady Gaga.
Jackson wanted to invite the `Paparazzi` singer to join him on stage during his This Is It tour, his former choreographer Travis Payne said yesterday."
Michael Jackson was the greatest entertainer in history, and it`s sad that we will never get a chance to see him collaborate with up-and-coming stars like Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift.
Jackson and Lady Gaga have a lot in common, and I would have paid a small fortune to watch them on the stage at the same time.
Lady Gaga is a talented singer, but she`s also a renowned performance artist. When Lady Gaga is off stage she`s still in character, wearing ridiculous outfits that sets tongues wagging and cameras clicking.
Michael Jackson was also a performance artist, his face was his canvas. He transformed himself from a handsome black man, to a weird-looking white woman. Now that`s performance art!
There was always a sexual ambiguity about Michael Jackson, was the King of Pop gay, asexual, or attracted to young boys? There is a gender ambiguity about Lady Gaga, is she a woman, man, or a hermaphrodite? God only knows!
Michael Jackson had an extraordinary talent that stood the test of time, we will be grooving to his songs for decades to come. Time will only tell if Lady Gaga has staying power.
