Lady Gaga has a new BFF more than double her age!
Cyndi Lauper stepped onto the red carpet with an all-white wearing Gaga in New York Wednesday night for the amfAR annual gala to raise awareness and funds about the HIV/AIDS epidemic and AIDS research.
Gaga’s new bestie offered RadarOnline.com a candid insight into music’s most eccentric – and eccentrically dressed – personality since, well, the Time After Time diva herself.
“She is a good kid,” said Lauper. “She is very creative and I am so happy for her. I think that sisterhood is a powerful thing.”
Lauper also defended Gaga, after a recent television performance in which she moved to protect the privacy of her family.
“There is no book which teaches you how to be famous… and you have to draw the line,” said Lauper.
Gaga stunned the crowd – at least, as much as she can these days – wearing an all white outfit, with pearls, wig, fish nets and bikini briefs. She said her motivation for the night was viva glam.
“The pearls are truly a representation, in my eyes, what viva glam is all about, which is a life of glamour,” GaGa said. “I live a life of glamorous life and I live it every day. You can live a glamorous life and not be a pop singer, or an artist. You can be anyone.”
While the zany singers are rumored to be doing a possible duet together, Lauper said nothing had been finalized. “I love her and will do anything she needs,” Lauper said.
The night also had another special layer: honoring late actress Natasha Richardson who died last year in a ski accident.
Guests at the emotional event included Richardson’s famous mother, Vanessa Redgrave, Brooke Shields, Sigourney Weaver, Meryl Streep and Cynthia Nixon.
“This was her life’s mission after her father died (of aids),” Redgrave said. “She spent 18 years of her life supporting amfAR, raising money for the aids research, education, for everything was needed. Especially advocacy and public policy.
“I am so proud of her and everybody.”
