Lady GaGa‘s former DJ Brendan Sullivan recently told Esquire that Lady G wants to be the main person in the world of pop music. Sullivan claims that the controversial singer wants to nurture and bring up new artists and bands, as a grandmother might her grandchildren.
According to Sullivan, GaGa once claimed: “There is a musical government, who decides what we all get to hear and listen to. And I want to be one of those people. She didn’t make that statement in an interview or from the stage. She made it in 2007, when she was a go-go dancer sewing her own outfits and I was her DJ. She wrote it in one of my notebooks.”
He added: “I’ll quote something she said to me one day around that time as directly as I can. ‘No-one in the world knows who I am, but they are going to want to know who I am. My first time ever on TV I want to be on a huge show where I play one song. I’m going to come out on stage in my underwear and show the world that here I am and I don’t give a ffff**k what anyone thinks of me. Once she told me that she wanted to be the ‘grandmother of pop music’, bringing up new bands, nurturing their talents, watching them grow.”
