 [NEWS] Lady Gaga: “Compare me to Iron Maiden

Lady Gaga 在最近的一次 CR Fashion Book 的專訪中表示:「 ⋯⋯有些人仍真不知道金屬音樂的重要性以及其範疇之廣。他們 (指 Iron Maiden) 的觀眾仍能佔據整個大型演出場館,全因他們的音樂文化是如此強大。只要 Iron Maiden 在此,所有樂迷都會團結一致。我以往一直告訴別人不要把我形容為『哦,她是下一個 Madonna』而是『下一個 Iron Maiden!』」

In an recent interview with CR Fashion Book, Lady Gaga speaks her love for Iron Maiden. “Some people really don’t know the importance of metal and the scope of it. Those guys were filling stadiums, and they still are. 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.”
