    Talking Michael Jackson Wanted To Collaborate With Lady Gaga

    It could have been one of the most bizarre musical hookups in pop history. According to a new interview with Michael Jackson's choreographer, Travis Payne, the late King of Pop was a big fan of Lady Gaga and had tried to set up a meeting to discuss a possible joint project.

    The revelation comes from a video posted on December 30 on YouTube by Amsterdam-based producer/actor Raffles van Exel, who asks Payne which artists MJ was interested in collaborating with before his death last June.

    "I gave him a short wish list [of possible collaborators] ... and he was like, 'Sure, they can all come, as long as their schedules permit and it's not too much of a problem for them,' " Payne said of Jackson's humble response to a suggestion that he reach out to other artists to work with him on his This Is It series of shows in London. "Of course, I suggested Janet, of course Whitney Houston. ... Diana Ross and Mariah Carey we talked about. We talked about Missy Elliott. We talked about Usher, of course. We talked about Justin [Timberlake], Celine Dion ... Sting, Seal, Bono, Tina Turner. We talked about all these people that I thought were cool but that he liked."

    Then, Payne said he asked Jackson if there was anyone else he wanted to reach out to. "He goes, 'Lady Gaga.' I go, 'Really?' He goes, 'Yeah.' He's the one who really got me to get into her. He literally told me, 'You gotta get into her. She's good.' So, I started listening to her music more and going on YouTube and looking at her performances, and I was like, 'He's right.' "

    Payne did not specify in the video when these conversations took place. He said that last November, he got a call from Lady Gaga and told her the story about the conversation with Jackson. "She got moved by it," he recalled. A spokesperson for Gaga could not be reached for comment about Payne's claims.

    Michael wanted to work with her, he was asking for her not vice versa.
    That would have been amazing.

    this doesn't surprise me at all. To me it was obvious he would like her, as what she does is so up his street, they would have probably done a dance collab, which would no doubt have been out of this world with an incredible video. It's all so sad

    OMG.

    Lady Gaga + Michael Jackson = PERFECT.

    " " A star can never die. It just turns into a smile and melts back into the cosmic music, the dance of life."
    I like that thought, the last one I have before my eyes close. With a smile, I melt back into the music myself" - Michael Jackson

    I don't really like her either. She is not a great dancer or singer and I find her performances repulsive and unoriginal. She tries soo hard that she just falls flat for me. And when you start out at 10 in controversy, there's no where to go to sustain yourself. people get bored. Or you're trying to constantly outdo yourself. I don't really like artists who have to constantly rely on a gimmick. (although I did like her first two songs and have them).

    That being said, I think MJ has this really great gift of elevating the work of those whom he collaborates with. so who knows.

    I think that whnever Michael made an album he would always leave the door open for anyone to contribute to it.

    A true genius will use their own ideas and a true genius will also be humble enough to take ideas/suggestions/inspirition from others

    *agree*

    Why not just tell people I’m an alien from Mars? Tell them I eat live chickens and do a voodoo dance at midnight.
    They’ll believe anything you say, because you’re a reporter.
    But if I, Michael Jackson, were to say, “I’m an alien from Mars, and I eat live chickens and do a voodoo dance at midnight,”
    people would say, “Oh, man, that Michael Jackson is nuts. You can’t believe a damn word that comes out of his mouth.”

    ~ Michael Jackson

    That would have been so interesting. I'm not that into Gaga...I have The Fame Monster, I got it as a gift at Christmas and keep meaning to give it a listen. I just get the feeling she's missing something and I don't know what. I think working with Michael would be an awesome thing for her.

    I don't mind Lady Gaga at all, I'm not much into her but Michael wanted to work with her, that would've been awesome.

    I agree. She's sort of an in-the-moment performer right now. And she's not as original as she'd have you believe, but I have to admit I like hearing her songs for now, kind of a break from the other redundant acts. She won't last long though.

    As for MJ desiring a collab with her, I'm not suprised. He wanted to do a duet with Madonna, why not Gaga? LoL. I'm not too fond of the idea, but I honestly think they'd make a great hit together.


    Miss you guys so Much
    Thanks for Everything

    Working with Michael would have been amazing for any artist. He's the king, any artist would give anything to work with him. I'm not that into her, a lot of it I find just controversy for the sake of controversy, but it would have been interesting to say the least.

    I like Lady Gaga, She has a different style and prospective to her, I think her and Michael would have made an awesome track together.
