Elton John and Lady GaGa have been friends for ages and she’s already godmother to his and partner David Furnish’s son Zachary. Therefore, it made perfect sense for her to take on the same role with the couple’s new son, Elijah. Considering she’s apparently one of the most influential people on the planet, that may have been a wise choice.
From Extra TV:
Elton and David spilled the beans on baby Elijah’s godmother. It turns out Lady Gaga will be looking out for both little ones.
“She’s a great role model,” Elton said. “She’s been a great godmother to Zachary. She came to bathe him in Las Vegas. She was already dressed to go to the show, and she was sitting there and she bathed him, and she was like dressed like Audrey Hepburn… and she fed him… We’re all bonkers in this business, but we’re human beings at the same time.”
I’m torn on GaGa as a role model. The whole rampant drug and alcohol use isn’t so great and she does dress a bit inappropriately for children, but I guess her politics are pretty good and she’s pretty generous with her money and gold wheelchairs and the like, so hey, why not?
Here’s a video of Elton and David talking about GaGa:
