Mother Monster… Literally! 9 Reasons Lady Gaga Is The Real Mother Of Pop
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.
1. Gaga took Justin Bieber under her wing at the Met Gala Ball to give him tips on fame
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
2. Lady Gaga is always around to lend an ear to the likes of Adele
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
3. Mother Monster stuck up for One Direction and told them to never let people bring them down
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
4. She gave Taylor Swift love advice, stuck up for her and provided support after her mum's cancer news
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
5. Mother Monster always goes above and beyond for her fans
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.
6. Lady Gaga stuck up for Miley Cyrus' freedom of expression after THAT 2013 MTV VMA performance…
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
7. Ed Sheeran got served drinks by Lady Gaga after the press claimed she mistook him for a waiter
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
8. She doesn't have any actual kids yet, but her dog Asia is basically her baby
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!
9. Mother Monster looks after the littlest of her Monster crew
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
