Queen Guitarist Wants GaGa As The Band's Frontwoman!

| Filed under: Music MinuteLady GaGa

queen-guitarist-wants-gaga-as-the-bands-frontwoman

Oh man. We couldn't think of anyone better!

Just IMAGINE the possibilities!

Although the band Queen has been relatively quiet since frontman Freddie Mercury passed away 20 years ago, guitarist Brian May recently revealed that despite receiving offers from various artists, he wants Lady GaGa to take over as singer!

He explains:

“We get a lot of offers to work with other people. I worked with Lady Gaga and she's very creative and is someone we've talked about singing, fronting the band with. She's not just a singer, she writes her own material. She would like to do something with us."

Yes and YES!

Doesn't it just sort of seem like a sort of natural progression for them?!

Granted, we wouldn't want Mother Monster to perform EXCLUSIVELY with the iconic band, but there DEFINITELY needs to be some sort of collaboration in the near future!

We smell PERFECTION!

What do U think?? Should GaGa join the ranks of Queen?!

  1. 1

    NO, NO and NO!! Sure I don't listen to Queen without Freddie Mercury, but Lady Gaga is not worthy of singing in his band..



  2. 2

    oh, hell to the NO!



  3. 3

    as AWESOME as this would be it wouldnt be helpful to her career



  4. 4

    I don't like her music. It's simple chewing gum pop masquerading as indie rock.
    But I can't den she got a great voice and think she will do a great job.
    I'll vote YES!



  5. 5

    Bullshit



  6. 6

    LOVE this idea! This would be such a spectacular collaboration!



  7. 7

    Brian May has lost his mind. Please for the love that is all pure and holy, do NOT make Lady Gaga Queen's new lead singer! No, no, no, no, no, no! Just because you THINK she's creative and she loves the band does NOT mean it's a good idea! Please do not lump her and Freddie Mercury in the same category! Paul Rodgers was shit too but he was still closer than this bitch!



  8. 8

    Do you know haw many fans Queen would lose if she became the front man!! Queen fans, real Queen fans do not like nor do they listen to her music!!



  9. 9

    This bull was debunked over a week ago.



  10. 10

    And p.s she does not write her music she co-writes her music just like every other artist!!



  11. 11

    I'm a Queen fan and this idea seems awful!!! Lady Gaga cannot even compare herself to the talented Mr.Mercury. He was something different. She tries to be different but it is not the same like Freddie. Lady Gaga is going to ruin Queen. Brian May should just sing he is a great singer. This makes me dislike Lady gaga even more :*(



  12. 12

    Even a fifth grader would research this one before calling it "fact".



  13. 13

    Re: SlaveMeh – she writes all her songs and gets others to edit them theres noting wrong with that, and no theres barely any pop artist that writes their own music. Beyonce doesnt do it Madonna doesnt do it and neither does Britney



  14. 14

    Re: SlaveMeh – well i take that back Madonna does write her own music her and pink are like the only pop artist that i can think of and kesha i think? lol



  15. 15

    Re: SlaveMeh
    I grew up on Queen…listened to them long before Lady GaGa, so I wouldn't say true Queen fans don't like her. Do I think she would make a great frontwoman for the band? No, but I've yet to see it happen to make a full opinion.



  16. 16

    Why would she does that? She's got her own thing going on.



  17. 17

    Re: casablancas89 – I grew up on Queen. And If Brian May thinks she would make a good lead singer, then i believe him. I think he's a better judge on what's right for the band than you are. And she does have the voice for it. And since Mercury was just as outspoken as she is, I think that he would approve.



  18. 18

    Re: pie107 – lol umm, Madonna has written more of her songs by herself than gaga has, in all the writing credits gaga has only written 2 songs herself, and every other song was co-written. Even Katy fucking Perry wrote more songs herself than gaga has, with 7 written without co-writers. Madonna has written nearly every one of her songs, and even showed a book/ published lyrics that sh had written decades ago and where she keeps her ideas for all of hr songs



  19. 19

    this story isn't really true, Brian was hassled by the interviewer to at least mention gaga possibly fronting the band, she's definitely not going to.



  20. 20


  21. 21

    They want her because she's super famous now. They just want to bring more awareness to their band. Publicity play anyone?

  22. yeez says – reply to this


    22

    His quote says that SHE wants to do something with them…it doesn't say anything about THEM wanting to do something with her.



  23. 23

    Queen died ,when FREDDY MERCURY DIED



  24. 24

    Re: madonna_is_queen – Madonna co writes her songs just like gaga does and gaga was a song writer before she was known as a singer



  25. 25

    Re: pie107 – Sorry hun but your wrong on all accounts!!



  26. 26

    Re: pie107 – If you knew your facts you would know britney has and does write and co-write songs there are hundreds on youtube!! And sorry for your luck but gaga does co-write all her music!! Live with it!!



  27. 27

    Re: SlaveMeh – britney writes just as much as justin bieber lol she didnt write or co write ONE song her last album so she cant be that great at it if she did, and i already said that gaga co writes



  28. 28

    Re: SlaveMeh – She does co-write most of her music, but on some songs she wrote it all like "You and I" from Born This Way and "Speechless" from the Fame Monster.



  29. 29

    Why not her? She can do anything when it comes to music. Just as long as she still has time for her music and her upcoming tour…the girl is already a workaholic!Re: LiseH92 – Not worthy? Lets see…she has had millions upon millions of sales in albums, a sell-out and top grossing tour (and I am sure the next one too). She has sung with Tony Bennett, Sting, Elton John and Cher….You saying "not worthy" just shows your hate has clouded your judgement….



  30. 30

    what can i say ,, all the Legends Love Lady GaGa, It's True



  31. 31

    Re: pie107 – Madonna did not co-write her music until AFTER True Blue came out….that is a Fact…Re: SlaveMeh – You do not speak for ALL Queen fans…I am a fan and I like Gaga….No problem having her to front the band…Since you are so critical, WHO would you want fronting Queen, exactly….Let's see how much you know about music…or do you just judge??????????



  32. 32

    Let's take a look at these people who wanted to collaborate or join Gaga:
    Sting
    Tony Bennett
    Elton John
    Yoko Ono
    Clarence Clemons
    Cher
    Michael Jackson (He wanted Gaga to open for his next tour).

    Aren't you guys starting to feel that you are underestimating her artistic ability perhaps? If all these legends want to collaborate with her that's saying a lot…



  33. 33

    HELL NO! I just lost all respect for the band Queen! And if she joins i'll never listen to them again.



  34. 34

    Re: Success Probability 0% – SoO True ,,, finally someone with Brain



  35. 35

    why would she wanna do that shes doing perfectly fine on her own.



  36. 36

    Re: sanfran1 – nope Like A Virgin, my FAV songs of all time by Madonna was on her second album BEFORE True Blue and was written by Tom Kelly and Billy Steinberg and Material Girl was written by Peter Brown and Robert Rans. she didnt even co write on those



  37. 37

    It hurts me just to think about it!! just plain awful!!! bryan may has lost all my respect



  38. 38

    Re: sanfran1 – Hate? Please watch your mouth.. I really don't think she's worthy, because she hasn't proven herself worthy yet.. She's been known for what? 4 years now, plus she's trying to stand out.. Queen/Freddie Mercury didn't have to try, he just did what he did. Just because I don't like her does not mean I hate her! And the fact that you make such a comment, just proves how ignorant and simple minded you are.



  39. 39

    Re: pie107 – there you go no POP artists write any songs. Queen is rock. Pure, real rock who has transcended decades of music. Lady gaga is just someone whos passing in the music business, she shouldnt be allowed to ever DREAM of working with legends like these



  40. 40

    I'm sure what Brian said was taken out of context. If that actually happened, Queen would lose their entire fan base.



  41. 41

    did they lose all of their money.maybe their hard up for cash if this bullshit idea is in the works



  42. 42

    Freddie Mercury is rolling in his grave NOW!
    Brian has lost his mind… or lost his money and needs to make some quick dough.
    .
    Either way, it is sacrilege.



  43. 43

    DEBUNKED A WEEK AGO !

    PREEZ WHAT ARE YOU SMOKING TO BE SO LATE AND STUPID ????



  44. 44

    The smell is not perfection, but millions of Queens fans' vomit



  45. 45

    This is insane!.. Freddie Mercury was unique.. and his voice was one of a kind.. No lady gaga or anyone would be able to fill Freddie´s place.. i would hate if this turn out to be true.. this is disgusting…she is a famewhore .



  46. 46

    Omg.. how very tragic.. feels like a sell out.. Freddie Mercury was incredable.. songwriting and melodies..original.. i know it has been 20 years but really? A pop tart who is overrated and unoriginal as hell? Yeesh.. today is really confusing..



  47. 47

    Re: Success Probability 0% – Mj thing is a speculation.. she just said that not Mj.. -.-.. and Yoko Ono?? >.> the down fall of the beatles?



  48. 48

    Yeah, this story was debunked a week ago. Besides–MARC MARTEL!!!! At least for one concert tour pls!



  49. 49

    What an awful idea. Please do not do this. It will ruin the band and tarnish the memory of Freddie Mercury



  50. 50

    Im sure thiis wont happen, she's too big on her own. but Id love to see her do something new with Queen and Id love to see her sing We Are The Champions with them, and of course Radio Ga Ga.

  51. @v@ says – reply to this


    51

    Marc Martel could walk right in. Gaga is a completely different genre. What is he thinking?
    Perhaps they would come up with something completely new. Shrugs.



  52. 52

    Thanks for shitting all over Queen's legacy, Brian! She is not even close to Freddie's league.



  53. 53

    HAHA. BITCHES, YOUR ARGUMENTS ARE ALL INVALID. THEY KNOW MUSIC MORE THAN ANYONE HERE. HER TALENT IS UNDENIABLE. BOW DOWN.



  54. 54

    Re: SlaveMeh – co write doesnt really mean much. someone else produces it and everything, she still writes most of it. have you heard her old stuff of when she was younger? FUCKIN AMAZING. her piano ballads. omg… beautiful, she can actually write much better than you guys would think. do your research.



  55. 55

    I love all this recognition she is getting from music icons that have been around for decades. Not only has she proven she has talent underneath all of the smoke and mirrors, but she has a really sweet personality. awwww, I'm in a gaga loving mood right now.



  56. 56

    This rumor has already been busted as bull.



  57. 57

    This is old news, I saw this reported several days ago on other news websites. Its also not strictly accurate as I think they are thinking of having various artists guesting with them, presumably as frontman or woman as that is the only vacant spot in the band. Would love to see Gaga do a collaboration with them though, older acts like Queen don't get together that often anyway so it needn't interfere with her solo work. Okay, yeah, I think Gaga would be great fronting Queen, a woman might be better to avoid too many direct comparisons with Freddie and she certainly has the voice for it ;o)



  58. 58

    Re: madonna_is_queen – Sigh, Gaga writes ALL her own songs, she is just generous with giving co-writing credits to the producers she works with, the lyrics and basic melodies are her own, the songs where only she is named are those where no real production is necessary, aka You and I and Speechless. Get your facts right before slagging her off please, I have no issue with anyone not liking her music but spreading lies is another matter altogether. I have no idea why you Madonna fans seem so threatened by her, although I will be VERY interested to see what Madonna comes up with next year when she releases her new music and see how she competes in what is, at the moment, a very competitive solo female market ;o)



  59. 59

    Wow he must be go senile with old age.



  60. 60

    NOOOOOOOOO!!



  61. 61

    What the fuck is the world coming to?



  62. 62

    NO NO NO NO NO NO. IS HE HIGH OR WHAT?!



  63. 63

    HELL NO…Freddie is iconic, Queen even more so. GaGa is not, and never will be in that league, no matter how much Perez wants it to be so.



  64. 64

    Brian better think about it. It was Queen with Paul Rogers. There's a difference when it becomes Lady GaGa with Queen. Besides I really don't think she can pull it off…

    65

    Enough of her….go crawl under a rock.



  66. 66

    Re: Success Probability 0% – they think she sells … thats all… too old to do it on their own and they need someone all the kids listen to these day bc those are the ppl that go to concerts… its called marketing dumbass its nothing personal about her bc everyone know as a artist she sucks ass



  67. 67

    No problem you change a Dead Queen for a Lady!



  68. 68

    @SlaveMeh Learn ur facts before dumping your bullshit. No GAGA doesnt writte most of her songs herself, but still, in 80% of her songs, shes hte main writter and uses a co-writter. Shes only the co-writter in a few songs. Dont be saying "she co-writttes all her own songs like every other artist" cuz u have no idea what ur talking about!



  69. 69

    Re: GAGAlovery – No honey you have no idea what the fuck your talking about!! fact is gagas songs are all co-written!! Live with it!!



  70. 70

    Re: GAGAlovery – The FACTS are not on your side!!



  71. 71

    Re: sanfran1 – No one needs to front Queen!! Just leave it alone!!



  72. 72

    Re: GAGAlovery – Born this way was written by Gaga, Fernando Garibay, Jeppe Laursen and DJ White Shadow,Judas was written by gaga and redone,The edge of glory was written by Lady Gaga, Fernando Garibay and DJ White Shadow, You and I was written by gaga, ill give you that!! And Marry the Night was written by Lady Gaga and Fernando Garibay!! Shall i go on!!



  73. 73

    Re: Saetana – Sorry but people just dont give away writing credits just to be nice!! They have writing credits because they helped write the damn song!!



  74. 74

    Re: pie107 – correction Madonna writes her music perez tired to make gaga look better by saying not even Madonna writes then posted a tiny apology that she does and has written most of her hits. Madonna is registered with ASACP org for the proof. Now if you go to BMI writers registry where gaga is registered you will see she is involved like Madonna but no more than any other pop star she also has written 100% but has up to 5 co-writers on 1 song. Pink, Jessie J, Katy P, Keisha etc all write. I think Riri and Britney are the only ones that don't right now. as for this queen situation I feel no one can replace Mr mercury doing so would be a huge mistake. I think they would have more successes if they started with a new band name and singer. its hard to find people with even an ounce of the talent that man hand not even gaga comes close.



  75. 75

    NO NO NO. WHO CARES ABOUT THE queens GUITARRIST opinion.this would be the worst artist ever., it would destriy THE QUEEN BAND…. gaga is a loser. a pathetic artist. every artist writtes music. gaga has no talent. she always steals ideas from other artists….. she has no style on stage.no presence. she is not a genius. and this guitarrist but be too old mind to that…. gaga is done. her album is a flop only sold 5 illions and wont sell anything more.everybody thinks shes pathetic. shes a fraud…

    I AM SURE GAGA ASK HIM TO SAY THAT.LIKE SHE PAYED TO ROLLING STONE MAGAZINE TO PROMOTE HER. I REALLY THINK SHE ASKED HIM TO DO THAT ..LIKE A PROMOTION… BUT OF COURSE THE QUEEN WOULDNT LET HER SING. SHE WWOULD BE THE WORST CHOICE EVER.QUEEN FANS HATE GAGA….. THE WORLD HATES HER. JUST A FEW LITTLE MONTSRE ARE LEFT BEHIND. SHES A COPYCAT WITH NO TALENT. EVERY ARTUIST WROTES THEIR OWN SONGS AND DONT COPY OTHER ARTISTS LIKE GAGA DOES….. i never saw gaga being original. this would be the worst thing ever… gaga is done



  76. 76

    gaga would mexx it up.noone loves gaga anymore. and queen fans ahte her. she only ahs a good voice. all the rest is crap.the only talent she does is copy other artists. she never decidesnything on her careerits her staff.THATS LAME.and many artists rights their own songs. gaga has no mega hits. gaga payed him to say this.of course he didntwant this.makes no sence. he would destriy QUEENS IMAGE. worst thing ever…. just an delusional old man could say this.lolshe payed to rolling stone to promote ehr so i guess she bag him to say this.shes so lame and false…. SHE ISNT ORIGINALSHES PREDICABLE.THE WORLS IS TIRED OF HER.HER LAST ALBUM IS HORRIBLE BY MANY CRITICS.SHES A FLOP. i dont believe inthis.she asked him to say this.



  77. 77

    Re: OriginalRecipe – recognition”'she is so fake.she ask them to say this shits. the world is tired of her. she is a noone. she lost many fans. she copies all. i never saw her being original for once,.everybody was saying shes a wannabe. so she have to ask them to say this. do u really think QUEENS would let her sing??do u??? NEVER… listen i have a friend that works for rolling stone magazine and he told me gaga payed them to promote her album.if u notice rolling stone was the one that said good things about BTW…. she is a fraud. a copycat with no talent…… thak God the world is noticing it now….. and what recognition?? the ppl that worked with her.only that ppl.she looks difernt when them are around… many legends said gaga is crap…. and she really is crap… this is the most ridiculous thing ever. GAGA IS DONE DEAL WTH IT.THE ALBUM IS A FLOP HER SINGLES ARENT #1…SO SHE HAS TO PAY PPL TO SAY NICE THINGS ABOUT HER.i know .shes a bitch…she has nothing to say shes dumb

    shes a flop



  79. 79

    shes a flop… her album flops. everybody thinks shes pathetic ad dumb… a clown…. her 5 mins are gone. and he is her friend. noone from QUEENS WANT THIS SO….



  80. 80

    Re: SlaveMeh
    So what if she co-writes her music. It doesn't diminish her talent as a songwriter. She may write the basic melodies and lyrics, and other people may help build around what she has written. Some artists are known for changing one word in a song and getting credit for it. It's not like she's trying to be Joni Mitchell or Kate Bush, although in the future, she may one day write and produce an album by herself.



  81. 81

    Re: maverick88
    Well, if she's flopping then everyone except Adele's album has flopped this year by your logic.

    Uh…the band Queen, for one!



  83. 83

    Re: Saetana – thats why shes #1.even now.the world is waiting for madonna new albu,shes never predictable like gaga.never boring like gaga. amdonna always strikes . after 30 years she brokes records with tours. everybody wants to see madonna live .shes the best performer.shes a animal on stage.gaga is boring.no energy.and her creative staff does everything for her.laurien said it. she sucks.ur blind , GAGA IS NO LEGEND…. GAGA IS THE ARTIST THAT RIPPED OFF THE MOST.SHME ON HER.SHES PAINFUL TO WATCH.SHE IS BORING.even britney spears was more fun to watch



  84. 84

    she asked him to say this….. queens arent stupid.this would destroy her band.gaga is the worst artist outthere.no personal image.too boring and predictable……queens were great.gaga day are done.her album is a major flop.she got terrible critics

  87. 87

    Re: maverick88
    You don't make any sense. You say she asked him to say this, although there is no reasoning or proof on your part, and in the next sentence you say Queen isn't stupid. Well, if they aren't stupid, then why would they say something they didn't want to say because some pop star asked them to? You will make up anything just to satisfy your all-consuming and hateful agenda.



  88. 88

    Re: maverick88 – I'm not gonna even finish reading that horribly written paragraph. I get it, you don't like gaga and you will stop at nothing to get your 'important' message out.

  91. 91

    Um.. NOBODY specifically comes to mind when I think of frontperson for Queen other than Freddie - and Gaga certainly would never cross my mind as someone to even give tribute. Her whole schtick lost it's magic for me years ago.



  92. 92

    I think this would be a great move for the Mother Monster!



  93. 93

    @SlaveMeh I have nothing i have to live with. Ure the idiot here. Look at the credits urself. ull see most of them shes the main writter and then she has a co-writter. Very few songs shes the co-writter. Unless u got some inside info to prove otherwise i suggest u shut up



  94. 94

    Re: GAGAlovery – Hey dumbass no your the idiot!! Where do you think i got my info i went and looked at the credits for her songs!! She co -writes theres nothing wrong with that, but to say she writes ever song all by her self is false!! Now shut the fuck up!!



  95. 95

    THE ALL CAPS WORDS ARE ANNOYING!!!!



  96. 96

    I don't like it…



  97. 97

    @SlaveMeh I didnt say shes hte writter for every single song. I know she co-wrotte some. But i dont get where ur going with this. 80% of her songs shes the writter and then there are hte co-writters. Id say i saw mabe 20% of her music where she was the co-writter

  98. @v@ says – reply to this


    98

    When Brian wrote 'Keep Yourself Alive' I didn't quite think he meant THIS. Unveil the brilliance in new ways but guard your legacy. Many amazing standout soaring rock voices could do a whole new and brilliant album and tour if they really wanted to. I think this proposal is just piece work, and at this stage, that might be all they want.



  99. 99

    I wish people could stob comparing lady Gaga with madonna (She has been in the industry for decades!!!!!!! She is no match to Lady Gaga the "newcomer") and its actually insulting to Madonna to be compared to a newcomer.
    I like Lady Gaga but she still has a long way to go.



  100. 100

    Re: GAGAlovery – Sorry but you've got it wrong as well, Gaga writes all her own songs, but most of them have co-writing credits for her producers, they don't write the lyrics and basic melodies - she does! I've heard it said by music pundits that she is very generous with co-writing credits for her producers. Name me one song that she didn't write please (I'll admit its vaguely possible there may be an odd one or two off The Fame as I only have the download album of that so I can't check, but ALL the Born This Way credits have Gaga as the main writer, she has said herself she doesn't mess with her lyrics once she has written them, check out your albums, all the co-writing credits are for producers rather than songwriters. Sorry, I'm not having a go at you so much as that silly tart SlaveMeh, just sad to see a fellow Gaga fan subscribing to a lie about her. Frankly I think she would be better occasionally letting someone else help with the lyrics, most of them are fine but some could do with a bit of adjustment "wear ear condom next time" grates on me everytime I hear it, if she had put "wear an ear condom next time" it would sound better and still fit in with the meter of the lyrics ;o)
