Speaking on a London radio show to promote his new album, Wonderful Crazy Night, (his 33rd!) Elton John revealed he’ll be working with Lady Gaga on new music. He also spoke about Gaga’s most recent album ARTPOP, which was not so well-received. He said,
“She made some bad career decisions – ARTPOP was not a good idea. It was not a good album. I think she will admit that.”
But he praised her new songs…
“I’m writing with Gaga tomorrow. She’s doing a new record. I’ve heard two songs, which are killer. They’re just great songs, it’s like back to the early stuff of hers.
For me, she is Stefani Germanotta, and I love her and care about her. She’s the godmother to my two children. I want her to make a simple, fabulous, great record.”
Gaga will be performing at next month’s Grammy Awards ceremony, so maybe we’ll get a taste of some of that new “simple, fabulous, great” music. (via Gay Times)
