Lady Gaga Claims Iron Maiden Changed Her Life In Audio Interview

Photo of Iron Maiden

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."

Honestly, I don't know why people see this as a problem.. She's giving props to our fanbase, which is awesome. There are a lot of ppl that don't consider metal to be music, and this could make them not be so negative toward our genre. And its not like this is going to change the music world or make a lot of pop ppl get into metal so there's nothing to worry about there.

Truth be told, she actually is a metalhead and also listens to Slayer. I had a roommate at one time who was a big Gaga fan, I think she saw her in concert like 7 or 8 times. Anyway, the roommate knew what kind of music I liked so one day when I was wearing my Unholy Alliance 2006 tour t-shirt and we were drinking in the garage she mentioned that Gaga was a Slayer fan. At first I did not believe it and demanded proof. She brought me some interview with Gaga and there was a photo of her from '97 or something and I sh** my pants because Gaga was actually wearing a Show No Mercy t-shirt! Even more shocking was that Gaga looked like a hot metal babe instead of the tranny trainwreck look she has today! Accept if kids: at one time Lady Gaga actually had good taste in music. Don't let it ruin your day

It is what it is...take it for what you will. I think it's pretty interesting that she's constantly covering her left eye and using her hand to make the "eye of horus." Also, she has openly stated to reporters that she has a recurring nightmare involving "the devil" telling her to cut herself. Whether she's an asset or not, she's a role model to many impressionable youngsters and the example she's setting is promoting the dumbing down of the populace and the coveting of money, fame, and sex.

For those questioning the "hit song" comment, keep in mind that Mr. Gaga lives in a different part of the music biz. She's referring to top 40 radio time, not the success of the band as a whole. Apples and oranges folks.

ZMA--I think her point regarding "hit songs" was off the mark. But if you acknowledge the lack of mainstream media exposure for metal acts, it is easy to see why she might think that.

As far a pop stars go, I think she's ok.

Heh, I find all the controversy about GaGa's illuminati-puppetness funny.

Even if she was, what does all this achieve? You can say mindwashing, but her song lyrics (last I heard of them) were retarded, talking about bad/violent relationships and sex, as well as implying the paparazzi are bad - the biggest illuminati tool of them all surely.

Some people even think she's against the illuminati, the eye of horus stuff etc is to get your attention and make you think about what she's doing, getting people to dig deeper.

However... In my opinion, it's all just a front - "oooooh I do satanic stuff in my vids, no one notices, except those conspiracy theorist guys, but they draw attention to it" - any publicity is good publicity.

I finish with a quote from that vigilantcitizen link - sure it's a comment after the fact, but just shows that people with eyes wide open might see stuff that isn't really there ;)

"To make matters even more twisted, “lady” GaGa may actually be a man. look at this link,
s/he has reportedly admitted to being a haemaphrodite some say s/he is a man.
All i know is (no disrespect to any1) but i heard haemaphrodites were a product of incest?!? Also if s/he is a guy and not a haemaphrodite. How sick is that to make guys fantasise after him/her whilst not knowing s/he is (perhaps) a dude? Sick"

BUT i agree with irish metal the most. btw, what's up man? been awhile dude! been meaning to ask u for some suggesting of good metal bands that use bagpipes lol

on topic: i'm not a fan of her, but i like her and her music. i'm just not one to WANT to listen to it. i just don't mind it when it's on. it is the lesser of ALL evils here in the stupid miami pop/rap/raggaeton music scene. BUT i think this is rlly cool. that comment of her about the "no hits" was ignorant as fvck, but she and we get what she rlly meant. (no POPULAR MAINSTREAM hit). and yes, she did dance to for songs back when she was a dancer. also heard, between the 2 myths of the origin of her name being from abba or queen, that her FORMER manager said that it was from queen. and that's awesome. so i do believe that she's into metal and rock of the sorts, just not enough to be considered a metalhead.

i'll point out that post #35's statement about her and manson, tho stupid, wouldn't be that absurd. and i would rather have them collaborate musically. just like how manson randomly appeared in an OLD eminem music vid ("the way i am"), i think it'll be pretty interesting. she is basically the manson of pop music.

Fair dues ES, I like the whole "get people thinking" deal, it promotes interesting trains of thought and often educates people in a lot of ways just finding out what different things signify.

Sadly, a lot go the conspiracy theory route, and then set it up for others to follow without thinking since it's all set out for them and "sourced" up. Especially with so many vids online, its easy to grab one still photo and say look at this - devil horns. Symbological gestures and stances are so easy to mock up.

It comes to the point where people will blindly follow the theorists, and decry the government for everything. Then people on the other extreme defend the government for all they're worth. Neither side admitting that the other has some good points.

Not everyone goes "blind" in this way, but you probably know yourself that an awful lot of people do.

Back to Gaga, I still believe it's just a gimmick, especially if she did like metal back in the day, she's just working it in and her producers approve.

Sadly, people have been so trained to think that anything not reported on CNN/BBC is crackpot conspiracy theory. The reality is, the majority of "conspiracy theory" is not any kind of theory but very proveable facts if you know where to get credible information and have a brain to make such decisions. Many don't (have a brain) and I totally agree with you that too many people follow blindly without actually thinking about it themselves or asking any questions. Instead they do as they're trained and point fingers and ridicule blindly. Just to state the obvious here, that Lady GaGa link is not a part of any provable facts. Just a food for thought article I enjoyed reading. :p Anyways, cheers mate I enjoy having you around here to keep us arseholes in line! \m/

Give me a break. It's not a publicity stunt. As if Gaga needs new metal fans to survive? What actually lends real essense and truth to what she said is her accurate and heartfelt perception and true feeling of what metal is all about and the "brotherhood" of metal fans. Obviously it's easy to bash gaga when while at the same time metal is the truest brotherhood there is also at times a snobby elitist attitude about it. Ultimately it sounds like she had an awesome time and she said she wishes she could have the relaionship with her fans that maiden had with theirs. There is nothing to bash about that only to respect. As the classic Vital Remains song goes "FOREVER UNDERGROUND" !!!!!!!!

Oh, I know about the building 7 conspiracy theories, but haven't looked into it enough to say either way.

THe theorists paint a pretty good picture of shadiness, while government reports (that I've not seen, only heard of) basically said it was unlikely bombs were there due to no explosions, and thermite would have been noticed.

Then there's the whole 'no jews in the towers on the day' and the rest of that stuff, the pentagon missile which wasn't a plane because no wreckage (stupid to my mind, because why send a missile when a small plane would be as cheap, and just as easy to control). Project Blue Beam, fluoride in the water, chemtrails, and you know my view on HAARP already.

It's interesting, but once you turn yourself to that way of thinking, it appears everywhere, to my mind much like religion. I enjoyed the religion debates that used to spring up here, but nowadays I just don't care, it generally only affects you to the degree you interact with it. So many people don't understand what they're talking about in the first place that it's just infuriating after a while, lol.

So yeah, I'll give my view on these issues, but I don't much care either way because they don't affect me personally, it's just fun to do so :P

They gambled their money, now pretend to be broke so all of us so called "wealthy" nations get to/are being forced to support them.

One of the biggest scams of our times.

But I didn't read through all your conversations. I'll have to come back and read more about those conspiracies.

Ancient Aliens is just like anything on tv regarding "paranormal" things...riddled with bullsh!t. That's what they do...cloud the real information with disinformation so that the public is constantly not agreeing and spreading heresay. Thus leaving the door wide open for the "illuminati's" biggest tool...the power of ridicule. We play right into the trap. As soon as someone presents an idea that challenges current models of understanding they're slammed to the wall and discredited...often times their whole career ruined and smeared. Only to find out down the road these were the pioneers of consciousness evolution.

However, AA does show very interesting places and discoveries around the world. I just tune out the actual dialogue and make of it what I will for myself.

By the way Irish, couldn't help but respond to some points. There was very real visible evidence of explosives...watch the towers falling in slow motion. Notice how below the "falling rate" several stories below there are windows blowing out. Now go and watch a controlled demolition. Same thing. Why does every other building that wasn't demolished fall in stages, each floor pancaking slowly onto the next...while the two towers were the only buildings in history to fall at free fall speed from supposed "natural structural failure?" Building 7 falling from debris flying through the window? Are you kidding me? So all the stock markets information including all of the evidence of insider trading days prior to 9/11 were suddenly gone? That's convenient. How about Donald Rumsfeld going on national news the day prior to 9/11 announcing that the military couldn't account for ~$2.2 trillion? 9/11 happened and distracted everyone the next day. Coincidence?

As for the thermite, there was LOADS of evidence proving there was thermite used. There was molten metal found several weeks post 9/11. For one...jet fuel cannot burn hot enough to make molten iron. Infact, it would need to be literally thousands of degrees hotter to melt the structural support beams of those towers (which were designed to withstand impacts and earthquakes of a magnitude not even seen in those times. The 9/11 debunkers are full of sh!t and lying through their teeth. Don't just sit there and listen to what they're saying because they have a peice of paper from an over priced college tellling you they're an expert. People are easily paid off. Don't deny the power of greed. There are thousands of scientists who give reports that directly conflict with "mainstream" scientists "official" reports. Scientific findings have been covered up many times in history. Einstein, Louis Pasteur, Alan Turing, Niels Bohr are some that come to mind immediately.

^^^Many things did not add up on that fateful day. Notice it happened on NYC's election day, so that people would have an excuse for not showing up. A few days later in the news it was stated that paper passports from the alleged hijackers were found a few blocks away. Funny, then how come the black boxes and c***pit voice recorders weren't? A year earlier, a commercial jetliner had been flown by remote control from LA to Canberra, which shows how the flight controls can be overridden. The main thing with all of this is to keep an open mind. Some day we might know what happened on 9-11, but I do know it did not happen the way they said it did. I remember the first thing that I thought when it happened - why aren't there any military planes screaming out to the scene? Seldom do you see evidence of an airliner encroaching into restricted airspace without some sort of military intercept.

Seriously, I agree with Sonic....there is a lot of fishy business out there, and most of it we have only the power to speculate about...we simply cannot KNOW

I remember watching the towers implode and saying there's no fvcking way them building ain't charged...as ES points out, EXACTLY like a demo

In any case, the human race is loaded to the gills with deception and intrigue, and Lady Gaga is the fvcking Devil :)

The way those buildings fell reminded me of the controlled demolitions of the casinos out here. Not only that, but don't most people even bother to question their media when they are presented with information that is suspect? Didn't it sound fishy that a 100 lb. weakling with a boxcutter could hijack an airplane? We were constantly barraged with information they took 4-5 hours of flight training in a cessna or piper aircraft, and that made them able to command a jumbo jet. Come on. When I was in training to get my pilot's license, it took me a few lessons just to fly straight and level...let alone execute precise maneuvers. Too true, hellrat.

HR, another dead give away was the V crimp that building 7 displayed right before it fell. If you've seen even one controlled demolition you would know that's exactly how they take them down. They start with the middle.

Sonic: In response to your question in post 73, the airforce was ordered by the SOD to stand down. But the Bin Laden's were allowed to fly! Coincidence I'm sure. Had nothing to do with the fact that they've been in business with the Bush's and other wealthy American families for years. Nah. The whole Al Qaeda thing is another huge joke too. The CIA funded Bin Laden (Tim Osman, laugh if you want) to create a resistance against Russia originally. They also made sure Bin Laden created an extremist sect of Islam with false ideals for future endeavors. That wire transfer network is what is known as "Al Qaeda." It's not a real network of terrorists despite what CNN and BBC are telling you. Originally they received funding from the Pakistani ISI, which many people are unaware receives its funding directly from the CIA (which isn't actually the intelligence agency at all, it's the worlds biggest crime smuggling operation founded upon nazi ideals. Where do you think all those generals and high ranking scientists in Germany went after the war? You don't honestly think they were sent to jail do you?? They're in the good ole USA...most of them were helping with the rocket program).

Hell brother, even some of the subordinates of the nazi regime were sent here, via Paraguay and other places conducive to laundering identity

We had a Kraut neighbor when I was growing up whom had this elaborate story that he'd feed everybody...about how he was a young engineer in Germany who was sent to Paraguay to oversee the building and operation of a 'brick factory' (something in the mud there, eh ;) )...whereupon he met his wife to be, a daughter of a Belorussian General....his romantic tall tale was certainly convincing enough to the easily persuaded, but his habit of falling into a thinly-veiled defensive fury when speaking about Der Vaterland, or about the fact that his wife was 'pure German! of direct lineage of Catherine the Great', spoke volumes to the veracity of his hidden identity....nevermind that his chosen place of settlement was just 45 air miles from Los Alamos

The supposedly 'educated' (indoctrined?) of our population can be so fvcking ignorant, its just plain disgusting. Controlling 'opposing' factions have been in bed together for fvcking eons, that is a goddamned fact. It is the surest way to greater power. To help develop their general perspective of such matters, ANYONE can study the histories of MANY specific dynasties, kingdoms, and the insidious interrelationship of nationalities throughout the world. Hell, we could start right here with the fundamentally corrupted bi-partisan political paradigm we have here in the good ol USA that so easily beguiles the passionately ignorant public...now, wouldn't that be a regular kindergarten lesson for the sheepies ;)

I stand by my assessment that NO ONE can ever KNOW the true nature of everything...but we can remain vigilant in our interest and speculation, and perhaps be able to 'read between the lies' a little bit then, eh?

Now, is Bin Laden REALLY dead??? And is Gaga REALLY the MAN-ti-Christ??? :)

Wow,interesting turn this topic has taken. Most of the things you guys have stated ive heard before. Especially the Nazi sciencetists ended up here by way of S. America. Hell, what was discovered in Los Alamos most likely went along way in influencing our Skunkworks program. Wonder what Jefferson would feel about a out of control,rougue gvt. Strange,but Bin Laden had 40 some odd relatives that attended MIT or Harvard. They were all allowed to fly back to Saudi in the days following 9/11. I was stranded in New Orleans on vacation because of the no flight order .Ended up being a much more costly trip than i anticipated .

Agreed all the way with post 11.


From what I've seen in an interview Lady Gaga loves music, she's very passionate about it. It's easy to judge her cuz she's so popular.

Just looking at this interview its nice to see she she liked the concert atmosphere; UNFORTUNATELY, she spoke like she had a chance of reaching that type of unity in the pop genre. Not gonna happen.

I love 9/11 conspiracies though. That's one conspiracy that I've seen sooooooooo much evidence pointing towards the building actually being demolished.

Yo ES called that sh!t down the middle with Cthulu haha. We should all run before a portal opens up in her mangina and he comes crawlin through to destroy the world.
