Metallica and Lady Gaga gave concert together at the 59th Grammy Awards. According to recent rumor, Lady Gaga has been offered the chance to become Metallica’s new “co-lead singer”.
James Hetfield suffer a ‘dead mic’ onstage during the performance of “Moth Into Flame”. Besides, his bandmates Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett, and Robert Trujillo, were totally blown away by Gaga.
According to WJLA in Washington, Lars Ulrich has made good on his offer to Gaga for a spot in the group, inviting Gaga to join the band onstage whenever her schedule allows.
Lars Ulrich spoke in an interview with Access Hollywood. He said:
“We’ve got a new lead singer. Well, a new co-lead singer, is a better way of saying it. We were talking earlier about maybe making her a permanent member of Metallica, and being a five-piece from now on, so we’ll see.”
Gaga has not yet commented about her participation of the next studio album or if she will only take part in live concerts. It is a possibility that could happen as well with Ulrich stating for the record: “This is only the start!”
Let’s be real for a second. Do we really believe Lady Gaga will join Metallica as a ‘permanent’ 5th member? More likely, she will “join the band” as an ‘Honorary’ member.
