Band Photo: Iron Maiden (?)
A new audio interview has been posted online between pop music megastar Lady Gaga and Rolling Stone magazine in which the singer discusses in length her "life changing" experience at a recent Iron Maiden concert in Tampa, Florida. The video also features photos of the singer hanging out backstage with the band.
An excerpt from the chat is available below.
"I went to see Iron Maiden the other night, and I actually watched the show from a box," Lady Gaga can be heard saying in the clip. "And we were laughing as we walked — it was me and my two best friends… as we were walking into the box, we had a bunch of drinks, we were all going, 'This is so not metal, to be in a box.' So we watched most of the show from the box and then we were gonna go meet the band. And we went down during 'The Number Of The Beast'. And when we got there, I grabbed Lady Starlight and I said, 'Let's go,' and we just booked it into the center of the crowd. And we were dancing and singing and everyone was just so into it. And it was one of the first times I've been able to just be at a rock concert in a long time . . . People did recognize me, but it was so kind and warm and awesome. I mean, Iron Maiden is all about, 'We don't care who our fans are. 'We love everybody.' I guess what I'm trying to say is the devotion of the fans moving in unison, pumping their fists, watching the show, when I see that, I see the paradigm for my future and the relationship I want to have with my fans. Iron Maiden's never had a hit song, and they tour stadiums around the world, and their fans live, breathe and die for MAIDEN, and that is my dream. That is my dream. And not only that, but when we got into the crowd, there was no pretension, I'm a pop singer, I didn't know what it would be like in a crowd of a Iron Maiden fans; everybody was hugging me, high-fiving, fistpumps in the air… 'Oh, it's so cool you're at Iron Maiden.' Jumping and dancing… I mean, it was like absolute no judgment, no prejudice, freedom and love for music. It doesn't matter who you are; you don't need to know anything about music to love it. And it was just so, It was just awesome. Maiden changed my life."
