Elton's partner David Furnish let it slip that they asked Gaga to take on the important role.
When asked about rumors they would choose Gaga by Canadian website macleans.ca, he replied: "We haven’t publicly confirmed that yet but your sources are very good!
“I prefer not to comment on it because we are going to make a statement about Godparents later on."
Well you just confirmed it. Thanks.
Elton and Gaga have only been friends for about a year, but he's really impressed by her. He recently called her latest track 'Born This Way' a "gay anthem" saying, “She’s all about inclusiveness and tolerance. She believes that you can be whoever you want to be and that we don’t have to live in a world of conformity and that we can all benefit from individuality."
“That’s the best message in the world. The freedom to be who you are, do what you want and love who you want to love.”
As for the Godfather? Something tells me little Zachary is going to have another famous name in his life--Eminem. Elton and Em have been really close friends for years, so it makes sense. What do you think of Elton's choices?
