Lady Gaga explained why he was friends with Donatella Versace: it turns out that the Italian fashion designer is her idol.
In an interview with Fashion magazine, the singer said:
I do not always have the one I can respect and whom I want to focus on. Sometimes it causes a feeling of loneliness, because you know: some people accept me as an artist, and some do not. I see who is now Donatella, what heights she was able to achieve and how she continues to develop further. She is a role model for me. Now I have a friend about whom I can say: "I can become like she". Or at least try.
Recall that Lady Gaga became the new face of the Versace advertising campaign in 2014. She is a good friend of Donatella Versace and often happens to her in Milan, and the outfits of a fashionable brand are one of the most beloved in her wardrobe, which the singer often demonstrates.
In 2011, their first "Creative tandem": Gaga put on Versace vintage dresses in The Edge of Glory clip. In addition, the singer devoted a song to Donatella on the new Artpop album.
