Run by the fans, for the fans.
I was lucky enough to be taken backstage by Gaga at the Manchester BTWB September 11th. I’m the girl down front with the purple bandana and not much else on!
She had spotted my jacket after Bad Kids and it seems I made an impression as she kept asking me to go back! That was one of the proudest moments of my life knowing that she was wearing something that I had taken so much time to create.
After she told me I was going backstage I had a breakdown in the pit and she kept looking over and smiling at me, she even shouted at my friends during You and I! When I was in the holding area before we went backstage we watched TEOG and she pointed down from the tower and smiled again.
Backstage smelled of weed and Starlight and Breedlove were having a joint behind Gaga. We walked past the famous bed and met little Fozzi! He was so adorable and tiny, he was also running around the room and running to Tara. We met Gaga while she was getting her hair done in the chair, she asked us all about her shaving the back off (she did it after we left!) although Freddi looked like he wasn’t willing to do it! She also told us about the idea of the head tattoo, her ideas were “Famous” or “Mother Monster” I’m so happy she decided to go for the cherub in the end! Haha.
We spoke about the album (it has a psychedelic/edm feel) and Taylor and she was just the sweetest most welcoming person I’ve ever met, she kept looking deep into my eyes and she has this stare that makes you feel so safe.
Before we left a monster asked if they could give a gift to Tara, Tara got all excited and Gaga turned away and muttered “fucking whore” Everyone fell about laughing, they have a great friendship!
It was the greatest night of my life and I still can’t believe she has my creation.
I’ve also attached a video another monster filmed, she spoke to me at 3:11
