Lady Gaga Might Be the New Queen Singer

The band, who haven't officially toured since Paul Rodgers left in 2009, is reportedly considering Gaga as its new front (wo)man. Says guitarist Brian May: "We talk about going out on the road all the time but there’s a bit of a singer problem to put it mildly ... I worked with Lady Gaga and she’s very creative and is someone we’ve talked about singing, fronting the band with." They're also exploring duet options, or a TV show, or really probably any format that allows May and Roger Taylor to bang out a few more "Bohemian Rhapsody"s in front of an adoring audience. But let's not ignore the obvious benefit (aside from, you know, massive crowds) of landing Lady Gaga herself: Queen already has a killer encore ready to go. "Radio Ga Ga," weirdly prophetic. [NME]
