The Heartwarming Reason Lady Gaga Gave A Fan Her Jacket
Seeing her in her leather jacket, Shannon didn’t realize it was actually Lady Gaga. She complimented her jacket, calling it badass. To which the Born This Way singer said thank you. Shannon recognized the voice and upon realizing that it was actually Lady Gaga she was talking to, she decided to tell her something she’s been wanting to.
“I did have a story that I wanted to share with her, and I felt this need that she needed to hear it from me,” Shannon shared. “And so when I went back, I was like, ‘Hey, you’re Lady Gaga, right? My best friend back in high school was a huge fan of yours. And you’re the reason he actually came out to me. And his first five tattoos are all dedicated to you and my brother just recently came out to me, too. So I just wanted to say thank you for being such an incredible ally.”

“I couldn’t have been more thankful to have met someone as sweet and caring and compassionate and just an overall beautiful person as her,” she said. “I wanted to cry because it was so heartfelt in that moment. And I have been a fan of hers since I was in high school. Timing is everything. I truly believe in this moment of time. It needed to happen,” Shannon said of her experience.
