We’re all children of Monster Monster in our hearts and latex-filled wardrobes, but only one actual baby has to slip into a meat onesie whenever his favorite and most terrifying auntie comes to visit. As the piano man confirmed today on Good Morning American, Lady Gaga is godmother to Elton John’s son Zachary. “Yes, yes she is,” John gushed to Barbara Walters. “When you get to the real person under there, there’s a real simple person under there who loves her parents.” Hmm, so maybe emerging from the egg bed at the Grammys was actually Gaga’s way of trying to understand baby Zach’s birth experience. Would that be more or less sane than doing it for no particular reason at all?
While the fact that Gaga says God gave her to lyrics to “Judas” would look pretty impressive on any godmother’s resume, Elton and his partner David Furnish are more interested in Gaga’s lyrical, rather than spiritual, pedigree. “Zachary’s going to inherit an incredible musical legacy from his father one day, and she will be a good person to guide him through the ins and outs of the music business, ’cause she sure knows everything about the business now,” Furnish explained. Besides, that little peanut clearly wants to have Gaga around. Seriously, he’s been saying her name nonstop for months.
