    Tony Bennett isn't the only classic crooner that Lady Gaga loves. Elton John is her friend, the father of her godsons and her saved her.

    Gaga told The Sun that she knew she needed help with her indulgences after she passed out drunk on the lawn at the wedding of the brother of her boyfriend, actor Taylor Kinney.

    "I got drunk and fell asleep on the front lawn throughout the ceremony," Gaga recalled. "That was a special time; you do fucking stupid shit when you're fucked up. It's like you have no sense of reason. I was even wearing Versace. I'm sorry for that, too. I can laugh about it now, but it was fucked up for a little while."

    Gaga also revealed that Sir Elton, who has battled similar drinking and drug demons, told her she needed to clean up her act, saying, "It's pretty messed up being friends with people who used to have drug and alcohol problems like Elton…He got me on the straight and narrow. He was telling me, 'Gaga you're smoking too much.' He saved me. I'm sober now. Sometimes. Not always. Just when I'm on stage."

    So there you have it. Gaga is trying to be sober.
