Singer, songwriter, director, prime-time Thanksgiving show host, Polaroid designer, friend of Obama. Lady Gaga has so many hyphens in her name at this point that her business card is starting to look like a word cloud.
But that hasn’t stopped her from signing up to become an ordained minister in order to perform a wedding ceremony for her close pal and yoga teacher, Tricia Donegan. In light of the legalization of gay marriage in New York state in June, Gaga has filled out the paperwork to do the deed.
According to numerous sources, she reportedly told Perez Hilton, “I’m actually getting ready now to be ordained to marry one of my best friends, Tricia, who is also my yoga instructor.”
It would be the first step to what Gaga earlier suggested could be a second (or third or fiftieth, considering her other recent new gig as a nude model for Tony Bennett) side gig as a traveling wedding officiant, following earlier comments that she would like to start performing gay weddings at her concerts in the future.
Once she gets her official papers, Gaga will join a long list of celebrity ministers, which also includes talk show host Conan O’Brien, Fantasy Factory boss Rob Drydek, ZZ Top guitarist Billy Gibbons, Courtney Love, all four of the Beatles, Alanis Morissette, Nicole Richie and Tori Spelling.
