Sam Smith would love to collaborate with Lady Gaga as he is her ‘biggest fan’.
The ‘Writing’s On The Wall’ hitmaker has praised the ‘Pokerface’ singer and gushed about a possible collaboration.
He told The Hollywood Reporter: ‘I’m the biggest Gaga fan there is. I queued up for her shows when I was 17!’
‘When I was 16 years old I was living in a tiny village in Cambridgeshire,’ Smith wrote in a note in his tour book. “I had such huge dreams of being a singer and an artist and had been trying my hardset to break out for so long.
‘It was at that point that I became obsessed with Lady Gaga. It started out as an admiration for her music then became an obsession with her story, her hustle, her bravery and also her voice for gay people. It got to the point where I would check GagaDaily.com almost 8 times a day and I stood in line twice for 10 hours to see her and be front row.’
Meanwhile, the chance of a duet was nearly scuppered as the 29-year-old singer and actress previously revealed she nearly quit music because she felt she was just a ‘money making machine’.
She said: ‘I have had to make decisions. ‘Why am I unhappy? Okay Stefani (her real name), Gaga, hybrid-person. ‘Why are you unhappy? Why is it that you wanted to quit music years ago?’
‘I feel sad when I’m overworked, and that I just become a money making machine, and that my passion and my creativity take a back seat; that makes me unhappy.
‘It feels shallow. I have a lot more to offer than my image.
‘Slowly but surely, I remembered who I am. Then you go home and you look in the mirror and you’re like ‘Yes, I can go to bed with you every night.’
‘Cause that person? I know that person. That person has balls. That person has integrity. That person just doesn’t say yes.’
Speaking of a possible collaboration, Gaga said: ‘Maybe it will be awful. Maybe it will be great.’
