Lady Gaga has been offered the chance to become METALLICA’s new “co-lead singer” after performing at the Grammys with the legendary heavy metal band. Despite the disastrous onstage collaboration, where 26 million fans saw frontman James Hetfield suffer a ‘dead mic’ onstage during the performance of “Moth Into Flame”, bandmates Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett, and Robert Trujillo, were totally blown away by Gaga.
As reported by WJLA in Washington, now drummer Ulrich has indeed offered Gaga a spot in the group, inviting Gaga to join the band onstage whenever her schedule allows.
“We’ve got a new lead singer,” Ulrich told Access Hollywood. “Well, a new co-lead singer, is a better way of saying it. We were talking earlier about maybe making her a permanent member of Metallica, and being a five-piece from now on, so we’ll see.”
No word yet on if Gaga would indeed be part of the next studio album or if she will only take part in live concerts. But looking even deeper at the situation, it seems that’s probably going to happen as well with Ulrich stating for the record: “This is only the start!”
