Kiss Became Role Models for Lady Gaga

By Dan Reilly

As one of the largest bands in the world for over 30 years, Kiss are certainly no strangers to the kind of fame that Lady Gaga currently enjoys. With that and their outlandish fashion sense in common, it shouldn't surprise anyone that the rockers and the diva hit it off immediately.

Gaga posted two pictures on her Twitter account, one showing her with guitarist Paul Stanley and another of her and the entire band. The pictures were taken backstage after the band's Friday gig at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, N.J., which Gaga attended with her boyfriend, Luc Carl.

On Saturday, Gaga performed in Tacoma, Wash., and spoke of how inspired she was to meet Stanley and company. "You meet so many people [in Hollywood] who are so ungrateful for what they have," she said, according to PopEater. "But Kiss, these guys have been making music for decades and they were ... beyond nice and beyond down to earth, full makeup and everything. They hung out with me and my friends for 30 minutes just shooting the s--- backstage like they don't have anything better to do ... That's gonna be me in 30 years."

Naturally, fans everywhere started speculating about a collaboration between Kiss and Gaga, but it seems that's just wishful thinking.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Wishful thinking - that's what was said about a Kiss reunion tour of the original four- and that became a reality. In regards "wishful thinking" to a Gaga/Kiss collaboration? Never rule anything out. Anything is possible in the music business. Who knows? Maybe one day Lady Gaga will cover "I Was Made For Lovin' You." It would certainly fit in to what she's doing musically.
Vince Neil of Motley Crue, from a break from OZZFEST, was also at the Holmdel show watching Kiss, along with Lady Gaga, from the soundboard.

Here's what Lady Gaga said Saturday night about Kiss at her show in Tacoma, Washington:
