Gaga And Zane Have Been Inspired by Elton

Written by Chief Editor.

Lady Gaga considers Elton to be a mentor for her career, as well as someone who encourages her on a personal level.

 
She comments:
 ''He's been my mentor for a long time. I mean, he's always challenged me to keep my head above water and it's something that I always appreciate--that he knows when I'm done. And he knows because I hide, because I never wanted anyone to see me when I'm like that. But Elton's always really challenged me to take care of my artistry and to take care of myself. And I really, really honour that about him. He is so, so uniquely special. He's such an inspiration. For me, it's been so important because I have also a very close relationship with his husband.''
 
Zane Lowe also has had the former Reg Dwight on his mind. It was, after all, his phone all that inspired the Apple Music host to keep his shows going through global isolation. 
 
''Elton calls to check up on you, he's just that kind of person, an incredibly kind human being,'' he says.
 
''This was in the first few days {of isolation} and I said, 'I think I'm going back to work on Monday' and he went, 'OK, I'll do Rocket Hour, let's go.' ''
