Lady Gaga shares a heartfelt moment with another artist on stage • Instinct Magazine
Lady Gaga’s affinity for drag artists dates back to her early days in clubs in downtown New York and continues throughout her appearance on RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 10 where she entered the working room with this season’s competitors. Recently however, a Queen who performed with Mother Monster herself many years ago paid tribute to her on stage during her residency in Las Vegas.
During a recent performance at Park MGM (where Lady Gaga is currently playing her Lady Gaga Jazz & Piano show), Nicky Monet spoke with Gaga from the front of the stage (wearing a stunning recreation of Gaga’s stage costume, complete with a sparkling black dress and feathered headdress). Gaga read a letter from Monet that spoke of a show they performed together about thirteen years ago in Tampa, Florida. Despite a crowd that was “Not very nice to both of us” (by Monet), Gaga gave Monet a signed cd that simply said “Nicky, they will love us one day, you are a star”.
Nicky (a burlesque artist who has appeared on shows like keeping up with the Kardashians and the reality TV contest Slag wars) spoke openly about the times she considered committing suicide and how Gaga’s music and message went “Saved her every time.” Monet expressed his gratitude both his gratitude and his admiration for “touch her heart when she needed it most”. Gaga humbly accepted Monet’s feelings and thanked her by asking the crowd to give Monet what turned into a roaring standing ovation. Monet expressed his feelings on Instagram, simply saying “Last night a dream came true. Thank you @ladygaga for the most amazing night of my life.
