OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder on advice to Lady Gaga


OneRepublic’s frontman Ryan Tedder made a statement in an issue of people magazine in regards to Lady Gaga and her health. According to the article he stated, “Gaga has to be careful. She’s already larger than life. How do you get larger than that?” While he’s not sure he remembers saying that, he had no intention of saying anything to hurt the pop diva. In any case he is now speaking out about his comment and what he really meant by those words.

In an interview with MTV, he said, I don’t even remember saying that. To be honest, I don’t even know that I did.” But going further, he explained his personal side and why he can relate to what Lady Gaga is going through.

He said, “I’ve only met her once, but I had, like, a two-hour conversation with her nonstop the first time that I hung out with her, right before ‘Just Dance’ came out, and thought she was the coolest, smartest [person]. I was like, ‘God, she’s got her crap together.’ She was legit. So I don’t know her, I don’t pretend like I know her, but the fact that I, for a moment, connected with her humanity, and I know how hard we work, and I know the schedule after ‘Apologize’ blew up … the longest stretch of time we were home in a row, for about 13 months, was two and a half days. And that can push you to a brink, where your job becomes who you are, and you end up reaching a breaking point, where all of a sudden you hate it, and you just want to quit.”

He ended it on a high note saying, “My hat goes off to her. Nobody works harder than Lady Gaga. Nobody. She is unbelievable. I don’t know how she sleeps, or when or if. But I know people who work with her, and they’re like, ‘She is the most dedicated, committed, hardworking person around.’ ”

We love “Apologize” and Gaga, so next we would love to see a collaboration between the two.
