Apparently, Lady Gaga doesn’t wants to be the new Madonna and instead she wants to be ”the next IRON MAIDEN

In a recent interview with CR Fashion Book (via Blabbermouth), Gaga says Iron Maiden are “one of the greatest rock bands in history, in my opinion”.

“Some people really don’t know the importance of metal and the scope of it. Those guys were filling stadiums, and they still are,” she says.

“And it’s because of the culture of the music, the poetry that’s so powerful, that whenever the fans come together they unite in the essence of what IRON MAIDEN is all about. I always used to say to people, when they would say, ‘Oh, she’s the next Madonna.’ No, I’m the next IRON MAIDEN.”

Lady Gaga appears on the cover of the latest issue of CR Fashion Book, where she’s wearing a black wedding outfit with an IRON MAIDEN The Number Of The Beast t-shirt.
