"School's Out" rocker Alice Cooper, who always added liberal doses of theater to his stage show and pretty much paved the way for shock rock, has revealed what advice he gave Lady Gaga when he met her.
Het met her at one of her shows, since they are kindred spirits with a flair for the dramatic and theatrical while onstage.
Cooper revealed, "She said, 'Alice, thank you for letting me steal your show.' I said, 'Gaga, I created a character called Alice. But it's important to keep Alice on stage. I never let Alice take over my real life.' I guess what I was trying to say was, be outrageous for the cameras. Wear a chicken on your head... but don't get suckered into thinking that stuff is real. When you're at home, just be yourself. If you can learn to co-exist with both Gagas, you'll be OK."
That's good advice from a man who has lived this life. Although we cannot imagine that Gaga is not Gaga offstage. She seems like she is Gaga all the time.
Do you think Lady Gaga should be Stefani Germanotta when offstage?
