vocalist Rob Halford
has once again confirmed plans for a collaboration with pop superstar Lady Gaga
, calling her "a total metalhead"
and a "f--king amazing singer."
Chatting with 107.7 the Bone
, Rob was asked if he was the one who started collaboration rumors. "No, she said it to me. She just said, 'Let's do something.' And I went, 'OK.'
[Laughs] I don't know what that means: 'Let's do something,'"
Halford explained further, saying, "I've gotta say, all of my metalheads out there know that metal is at the heart of everything that I do, but I love to see a big show, I love to see a big production. And I went to see her show in San Diego, and it was just great to watch. It was just a very complete presentation, as far as what a good show should be about."
Singing massive Gaga praises, the singer added, "And I love her just because, for a singer, she's a f--king amazing singer. And then she writes all this material. She's got a live band. I was hanging out with the band afterwards, and they're all metalheads. And, of course, you look at her past and she's a total metalhead. "She started off strongly into rock and metal and you've seem pictures of her with Alice Cooper or Bruce
] from Iron Maiden and all of these other people in metal; it just shows you that she's committed to that. So I just wanted to go and check it all out, and it was amazing. "And then she comes off stage, instantly,
[she was, like], 'Ah, I can't believe you're here. Give me a hug.' And 'Let's do something.' And she's just a really sincere, complete person as a musician. But what we'll do, and if we do it, I don't know,"
