Judas Priest 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,'" he replied.
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 [Dickinson] 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," Rob concluded (via Blabbermouth).
