She's the matriarch for millions of Little Monsters all over the world, but Lady Gaga also likes to take young pop stars under her wing too. Check out why Gaga is the real 'Mother Monster' of music.
The pop pair had a heart to heart backstage and Gaga later posted a photo of the two of them together with the caption, "He really has a sweetness to him. He grew up in front of the whole world. I reminded him to not get bothered. Because at the end of the day. He's the boss, and life isn't always Roses. Lots of thorns." Picture: Instagram
The pair sparked collaboration rumours at the start of 2015 when they shared a picture of the pair of them having a 'bro-down'. While a joint song hasn't materialised yet, Gaga was definitely there as a sounding board for another of pop's biggest voices. Picture: instagram.com/ladygaga
When 1D won the Song Of The Summer award at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, Gaga heard some of the audience booing the band amidst the cheering. She told the boys afterwards, "If I did hear what I heard out there, I just want to tell you that you deserve every bit of success that you have. Don't you dare let those people boo you. I want to leave right now. I don't even want to stay because I don’t want to be in a room like that." Picture: Getty
Lady Gaga famously reassured TayTay that she would find her prince one day, took the mickey out of Kanye West in a Saturday Night Live sketch and most recently tweeted her support after Taylor's mother was diagnosed with cancer. Gaga tweeted, "God bless you and your mama and family, we'll all be praying". Proof that Mother Monster is there for her pals whatever the situation! Picture: Getty
She's a vocal supporter of LGBT rights and always takes time out to help fans that she spots that are struggling with issues in their lives - she's so dedicated to her Little Monsters, she even got a monster hand tattooed on her back.
When Miley shocked the world with her raunchy twerk-tastic performance with Robin Thicke, Gaga was firmly in her corner. She told the press, "I think everybody needs to lighten up and leave her alone because it's pop music. Everybody's entitled to their own artistic expression, and if you have a problem with it, just change the channel. I don't understand the need to go on about hating things all the time because, what, she's 20 years old? And if anything I give her props." Picture: Rex
The rumours started at the Grammys when Gaga was rumoured to have mistaken Ed for one of the waiting staff. The pair denied the rumours and she ended up fetching drinks for HIM instead! He tweeted, "Just bumped into gaga she's fetching me a drink. God bless the press" Picture: Instagram
She dresses the pup up, it even has it's own INSTAGRAM account and probably owns more jewels than we do. Gaga's mothering instinct definitely comes out when it comes to her four legged friend - we can't wait to see what she'll be like when she has a child of her own!
It must be pretty scary meeting your pop idol when you're less than 10 years old - but if that idol is Ms Germanotta, you're in good hands. The photos of Gaga cuddling and holding on to overwhelmed fans hands literally melt our hearts. Awww! Picture: Getty
