In an interview with web article series ‘A Drink With‘, Paul Blair (aka Lady Gaga’s friend and producer, DJ White Shadow) recalled a few escapades with Lady Gaga and her celebrity friends, and in particular one in Detroit. Here’s what he had to say:
Gaga is an incredible accommodator for when I get excited about things. She was like, “I’m going to sit here, you sit there, and Jay you sit there.” So I’m sitting right next to Jay Z and he’s pouring drinks for people. I’m sitting there and it’s me, Gaga, Chris Martin, Gwyneth Paltrow, Rihanna, Rick Ross maybe and then Jay.
I saw him (Eminem) and Jay Z in Detroit. I did tequila shots with him, Jay Z and Gaga backstage. It was pretty solid. Actually, he didn’t do the tequila shot. Jay Z, Gaga and I did the tequila shots. I think he was sober at that point.
Gaga and Rihanna have had interactions before. Back in September 2013, a few weeks after Gaga had performed Sexxx Dreams for the first time at Swinefest, Rihanna tweeted:
Lastnight…. YOU were in my sex dreams!!
— Rihanna (@rihanna) September 20, 2013
@rihanna doing really NASTY THINGS *dancing gaga*
— Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) September 20, 2013
Which sparked rumours of a remix (ir a Rihmix, if you will) for Sexxx Dreams featuring Rihanna, but alas, it was not to be.
In the article, DJ White Shadow also spoke about how he was approached by Gaga’s creative director to work on Born This Way, and how that changed his life:
I didn’t have any idea that he was anybody. It was just a dude in a Sox hat. He’s from Chicago too. I was DJing and he was like, “Yo, what is this?” I was playing old techno, like old house. People were dancing. The particular night I had was a Sunday night. It was for [the entertainment company] sbe. […] Long story short I ended up showing him some stuff and we just got to be friends. Three months down the road he said, “I’m doing creative for Lady Gaga and if something comes up I’ll hit you up.” Two months later he called.
