Lady Gaga Is Like a ‘Mother’ to U.K. Rock Band the Darkness
Lady Gaga is Mother Monster to all her fans. However, glammy U.K. rock band the Darkness considers her to be like their mothers. Literally…like the women who birthed them! No, we’re not kidding!
The rockers, who have been opening for Gaga on her Born This Way Ball tour, called her “the life and soul of any party,” all the while pointing out that she reminds them of dear old ma!
Flamboyant frontman Justin Hawkins, who is just as fabulously fashionable as Gaga herself, said (quotes courtesy of Contact Music), “She has a similar energy to a Russian lady called Agatha who makes my stage clothes. But she’s also got something that really reminds me of our mother. Some of her energy. You know what I mean?”
Oh, we know what you mean, Justin. Gaga is like a cosmic mother to us all, whose pop lullabies are like a warm blanket in which she swaddles us. It’s also not lost on us that their stage clothes designer Agatha reminds them of Gaga, who is a clotheshorse.
Justin’s brother Dan continued, ”And our mother is the life and soul of any party. She just has that same kind of energy, dancing around.”
So the Hawkins consider Gaga to be both maternal and of the same firecracker spirit as their own mama.
Bassist Frankie Poullain shared the maternal sentiments of the Brothers Hawkins, saying, ”It’s funny; she reminds me of my mum as well. I wanna qualify that in the sense of the multi-tasking mentality, Gaga just goes from one subject to the next. She’s very forthright and very fast. That’s like my mum, who’s quite hyper and amazingly on the money.”
Lady Gaga is quickly becoming Lady Mama!
