One of our favorite fun facts about Gaga – and definitely one of the sweetest – is her being the Godmother of Elton John’s two sons, Elijah and Zachary. Is that, like, the biggest honor ever, or what?
We have no doubt that Gaga is an amazing Godmother, and we kind of wish she was ours, too. Maybe there’s still a way to make that happen?
The Wrong Number
Here's a surprising fact about Gaga's hit duet with Beyonce, "Telephone" – it was originally written for a third pop diva! Britney Spears, to be precise. It was meant to be part of Spears' "Circus" album but was eventually dropped by her and given to this amazing diva-duo instead.
We love you Britney, but we couldn't be more thankful, since Gaga and Beyonce's version is one of our favorite songs.
A Family of Fashionistas
We're not sure if this would come as much of a surprise to you, but it seems that Lady Gaga literally has fashion in her genes. A supporting argument for that would be that her sister Natali is a fashion designer!
Among other things, Natali is responsible for some of Gaga's wackiest outfits and looks, and she also played one of the inmates in the promo for "Telephone." How cool is that?
Unfortunately, even though so many people recognize the fact that different is beautiful – Gaga's classmates back when she was at school didn't seem to think so. Among other things, they put her in a trash can once and used to call her "rabbit teeth."
This is so incredibly sad and disturbing, but we really hope they're crazy jealous of how successful she is today. We genuinely think the woman is an inspiration.
Born This Way
Other than being one of our favorite songs, "Born this Way" is also the name of a foundation started by Lady Gaga herself. As a past sufferer of both bullying and eating disorders, Gaga has a special place in her heart for people in need.
Her foundation helps struggling teenagers better their lives and their communities. Gaga was awarded the LennonOno Grant for Peace for the admirable work of her foundation. We salute you, Stefani.
