How to meet Lady Gaga

By Janine James
Lady Gaga is one of the busiest people in the world.

Lady Gaga is one of the most popular musical artists in the world. Her catchy dance beats and often dark lyrics have made her a favorite among many pop music lovers. Gaga has been on two world tours since her debut as an artist. Meeting Gaga when she is on a concert tour is not easy; however it is possible if you have the will and determination.

The easiest way to meet Lady Gaga is to buy meet-and-greet concert tickets, which let your meet her before or after the concert. Unfortunately, these tickets can cost hundreds of dollars.

But there are still ways to meet Lady Gaga at one of her concerts even if you only can afford general admission tickets. Find out specific details about the concert. It is best to show up three hours or four hours prior to show time to possibly catch a glimpse of the star. Often this is a fantastic way to unofficially meet Gaga, because she usually will approach fans who are waiting outside of the concert venue. Gaga has been known to talk to fans, sign things for them and give concert tickets to those who do not have them.

Bring creative presents to a Gaga concert is another way to possibly meet her. Gaga is always showered with gifts at her shows, most of which are thrown on stage when she’s talking to the audience. One fan has tossed up a jacket that told Gaga to look in the pocket. Gaga found a walkie talkie in the pockets and was able to speak with the fan. Signs also get fans backstage. At one concert, a fan held up a sign that said he or she had been to seven of Gaga’s concerts. Gaga was so impressed by this that she invited the fan backstage after her performance.

If you actually get to meet Gaga, keep in mind that you will probably only have a few minutes to spend with her. Make the most out of your meeting by staying as composed as possible. The last thing you’ll want is to spend your time excitedly screaming when you could be asking her questions. Gaga really appreciates it when people ask how she’s doing. Bring things for her to sign or a camera to get pictures with her. Another nice gesture would be to give her a gift. She loves unicorns, handmade items, daisies and white roses. At the end of the meeting be sure to thank her and give her a hug.

Tip

Be sure to bring a working permanent marker because chances are Lady Gaga will not have one handy.
