Lady Gaga joined Queen + Adam Lambert on stage in Sydney last night but not for the song from which she took her name.
Gaga danced and sang along with Adam Lambert to ‘Another One Bites The Dust’ but watched from the audience when the band performed ‘Radio Gaga’.
‘Another One Bites The Dust’ comes early in the Queen set. Gaga was on stage with Queen + Adam Lambert at song three in the show.
Lady Gaga named herself after the Queen classic ‘Radio Gaga’ in 2006. According to producer Rob Fusari, “Every day, when Stef came to the studio, instead of saying hello, I would start singing ‘Radio Ga Ga’. That was her entrance song” and that the text message was the result of a predictive text glitch that changed “radio” to “lady”. She texted back, “That’s it, don’t ever call me Stefani again”.
