Underneath the layers of over-the-top outfits and catchy dance tunes, [artist id=”3061469″]Lady Gaga[/artist] has always remained loyal to her friends, family and army of Little Monsters. That was just one of many points made in the MTV documentary “Lady Gaga: Inside the Outside,” which dove into Gaga’s pre- and post-fame life .
During “Lady Gaga: The After-Show,” MTV News’ James Montgomery chatted with many of the singer’s confidants, including Semi Precious Weapons frontman Justin Tranter, Lady Starlight, documentary director Davi Russo and producer Fernando Garibay.
As the opening act for her worldwide Monster Ball Tour, Tranter knows more than anyone about the singer’s devotion, calling her “the most loyal friend you could ever ask for.”
“We’ve been so desperately wanting to be a band for so long and busting our asses, and for Gaga to put her foot down as the biggest star in the world and insist that this really f—ing loud rock band fronted by a man in heels needs to open for her all over the world shows her character,” Tranter said of the singer, who used to open for his band before she hit it big. “As a friend and as a fan, she’s so loyal to what she likes and who she loves.”
Gaga’s longtime friend and early performing partner Lady Starlight also chimed in on the pop star’s devotion since before her fame years, praising the singer for always giving credit where it’s due.
“She’s always … talked about me and given me credit for anything we worked on together,” Starlight told us via Skype. “And you don’t see people coming out after, like, their first album, when they’re trying to prove themselves, so willing to give exposure to the people who they care about and who influence them and who they work with. That’s unprecedented.”
Russo echoed those sentiments about Gaga’s bond to friends like Starlight and Tranter. “It’s just refreshing and inspiring to know. … It’s like the people you really come up with are the people you still surround yourself with, regardless of what’s happening,” Russo said of the singer. “I can’t say that about so many people, unfortunately.”
