Here’s a guess: it wasn’t a princess or a mermaid!
The only thing anyone expects out of Lady Gaga is the unexpected. The woman even dared to wear latex when meeting the Queen of England! So it’s only normal that Lady G wouldn’t have normal childhood dreams like, say, wanting a pony or dreaming of being an astronaut.
But who did Gaga go gaga for as a little girl?
The pop star confided to Barbara Walters that she wanted to be a combination of David Bowie, Mick Jagger and Liza Minnelli (so, in other words — Adam Lambert).
“I had this dream and I really wanted to be a star, but not the kind of stars that I was seeing on television when I was young [around four or five], the kind that my parents saw on TV,” the Lady said on Babs’ Sirius XM radio show on Dec. 7.
Gaga’s musical heroes even made Barbara do a double take. “That’s who you wanted to be?” the seasoned news vet asked incredulously.
“Yes,” was Gaga’s answer. “And I was almost a monster in the way that I was fearless with my ambitions.”
A rock monster, that is. What did you want to be when you grew up? Did you dream of being a fairy princess, or did you want to be a Glam Goddess like Lady Gaga?
