OFFSTAGE: Lady Gaga’s New BFFs

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

When Miranda Lambert tweeted after the Grammy Awards on Sunday (Feb. 12) that she had a new friend in Lady Gaga, she wasn’t kidding. Gaga and Lambert were seated next to each other during the whole show. And Lady A’s Hillary Scott saw it all from one row back.

“The funniest thing was, I think it was the front row, it went Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, Lady Gaga. And Miranda kept bringing Lady Gaga drinks from backstage,” Scott says in this week’s Webisode Wednesday. “So I just kind of watched this friendship develop.”

Lady A’s Dave Haywood added that Gaga somehow managed to drink through that fishnet mask she was wearing all night. When two artists from different genres become friends, even if it’s just for one night, I can’t help wondering what is probably on everyone else’s mind: Will there be a Miranda Lambert/Lady Gaga pairing on CMT Crossroads someday?
