Rob Halford, the legendary frontman of Judas Priest, has expressed his huge admiration for Lady Gaga, whom he considers as the gigantic pop icon of the century, and disclosed which songs he wants to sing with her.
Within the most recent interview he gave to the People, one of the leading figures in the heavy metal genre, Rob Halford has revealed that he’s a great fan of Lady Gaga and has been supporting her since he first discovered her music.
Referring to the things she did for the LGBTQ community and her pure personality, Halford told the source that he would definitely sing one of the most popular songs of her, ‘Born This Way,’ as well as the Priest song, ‘Breaking The Law,’ with Gaga.
Rob Halford revealed that they first met when he showed up, with a mutual friend, Lady Starlight, to the singer’s 2014 ‘ArtRave’ tour in San Diego. He said he was clapping and hooting like fans among the audience and when Lady Gaga saw him, she literally fell to her knees.
Here is what Rob Halford said when he was asked which songs he would sing with Lady Gaga:
“I would definitely do ‘Born This Way’ because that’s our anthem. As far as Priest songs go, I think I’d like to do ‘Breaking The Law’ with her because it talks about the frustration that we go through, particularly as young people.
‘You don’t know what it’s like, you haven’t got a clue. You’d do the same thing too. Breaking the law.'”
He also explained his admiration on her and said:
“I became a big fan of everything that she’s done and that’s because I love all kinds of music. She’s the best at what she does.”
Halford recalled the time he met Lady Gaga and said:
“When Gaga started her performance, me and Starlight snuck out into the audience. I was clapping and hooting and hollering like fans, and Gaga’s making her way out to them and then she sees us, and she literally falls to her knees and crumbles onto the floor.
And Starlight’s digging me in the ribs going, ‘See, I knew she’d be happy that you were here.’
She’s so pure, she’s so in touch with herself as a person, and the great, great, great, great things that she’s done for the LGBTQ community.”
