Lady Gaga has entranced everyone from Annie Lennox to Perry Farrell, and now it looks like Gene Simmons not only loves the pop star but also wants her to be the honorary fifth member of Kiss.
“I love the vibe, the big mouth and the big visuals,” Simmons told the UK’s Daily Star. “She’s the most exciting thing to happen since us. She’s a female version of us.”
Calling her “Lady Kiss,” Simmons believes that Gaga’s out-of-the-box fashion sense and theatrical style was inspired by the hard rock legends, and credits her success to her ability to connect with fans.
“One of the first things we learned was to treat the audience as the guv’nor,” he said. “When they buy a ticket they become your boss. We just work here. She realizes that her fans deserve the best you got because they pay your wages.”
