Lady Gaga: Denim and Leather Forever

Saxon's Biff Byford with Lady Gaga:
No, you are not hallucinating.

So what is Lady Gaga doing on this site, you ask? As A.D.D. mentioned last year, many recent pop divas have revealed themselves to be closet rockers, including Gaga, Ke$ha and Celine Dion. Now Gaga has truly proved it, as Metal Insider recently reported, by posting a photo of herself with Saxon frontman Biff Byford through her Twitter account. While I’m not a fan of the pop singer’s music, I’m going to give her props because she chose to gush over an influential but cultish metal band rather than go for a more obvious choice. Saying you like Black Sabbath or Metallica would be too easy (not that there’s anything wrong with that, but so many people say that); saluting Saxon is cooler and shows deeper knowledge and devotion to the genre.

As a possible salute to her musical inclinations, someone recently created a mashup of Lady Gaga and Judas Priest that is amusing, if horrifying. Check it out below. Below that check out a Kylie Minogue/Priest mashup that’s cooler.
