Outlandish rocker Alice Cooper thinks Lady Gaga “totally gets it,” reports The Huffington Post. Why? Because she’s just like him!
"Lady Gaga is the female Alice Cooper," the 63-year old said of the uber-popular pop star.
Born Vincent Furnier, Cooper reveals that he and Gaga (née Stefani Germanotta) are nothing like their invented stage personas.
Cooper is famous for injecting his theatrical rock shows with dangerous elements like guillotines and boa constrictors. Gaga is similarly wacky, incorporating props like giant eggs and donning costumes of raw meat.
"She created a character named Lady Gaga and wrote songs for Lady Gaga, just as I write songs for Alice," he said. "But when you meet her offstage, she's nothing like that person... and neither am I."
Offstage, Cooper ditches the goth gear for golf attire, preferring to spend his free time teeing off. (He even wrote a book on the sport called “Alice Cooper, Golf Monster.”)
Gaga has been spotted indulging in some “normal” hobbies as well. The pop singer was snapped surfing in Mexico recently.
Alice Cooper’s new album "Welcome 2 My Nightmare" will be released on September 13.
Not a huge fan of lady gaga but I respect her. I'm sure artist like alice cooper had plenty of haters when he was in his prime. Hate on her but she probably will be remebered 30 years from now.
More like the female Marlyn Mason.
What a horrible insult to Alice Cooper!
I think Alice has just dropped a couple of notches on my like list. first of all Alice is an inovator and as original as they get.
Lady Gaga has copies everyone from modona to cher. There is nothing original about her and her music leaves much to be desired for. In my opinion gaga is on equal footing as Justin Beiber and if asked which of the two I would rather see. I would rather suffer through Beiber than Gaga.
Their both good at what they do.
Welcome to my nightmare.
I'll bang them both while i moooooo
Gaga post-op or pre-op? Giggity
Oh crap! You mean all those times I was alone in my bedroom thinking of Alice........GHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!
Wait, Alice cooper is a guy?????
I'm sorry but there is nothing that Gaga has done that Madonna didn't do 25 years earlier.
FACT: AND LOOKING DIFFERENT IS A PART OF THE SHOW-GET IT ACTING....BUT GAGA
CAN'T ACT...LOOKING AT THE AWARDS, NO MAN OR WOMAN ACTS LIKE THAT...
BEING .NORMAL IS BEING YOURSELF..BUT SHE IS AFRAID TOO, WHY?
THIS IS A QUESTION SHE WILL HAVE TO ANSWER!
Whats the problem with not having a gimic? If there is talent it will shine theres no need to be such a freak show.
Alice, you are looking long in the tooth! Your eyeliner is accentuating your wrinkles. Please consider getting some botox or collagen to plump up those wrinkles or just retire Alice. It's hard to look at you now and not wince!!
Why Alice isn't in the horror movie biz, I will never know. He would be perfect for a part on any of the vampire flicks out there today.
Funny how Alice Cooper himself compliments Lady Gaga and many of the posters here call his opinion horse manure.
Cooper himself says Lady Gaga 'gets it'.
That's some vindication from the King Of Shock Rock,himself.
ALICE ROCKS! And allways did ( will ). Lady Gag Me is a forking Joke. Well Ill say it-She has no BALLS. All fluff and puff. No stuff. My band opened for Alice at Cochella CA. H.S. in 74.A true classic .Gag me?-not even close! Lady Who???

Lady GA gAG Is all smoke and mirrors
She a lame songwriter at best
there is no comparison between the 2,other than the theatrics.
alice is a music legend.lady gag is a flash in a dirty pan
.in 30 years nobody will remember lady gag
Lady gaga is like the male alice cooper with an adams apple.
I always thought she was the female marilyn manson.
I always thought she was just a male.
Alice has talent.... Gaga not so much. the shock factor is there to hide the flaws.
I always thought Justin Bieber was the female Lady Gaga
More Ozzie than Alice.
This. As I see it, Ozzy and Gaga are as known for their music as they are for their shenanigans. As weird as he can be on stage, Alice is typically rather normal off-stage.
If I had to compare any recent pop star to Alice Cooper, it'd be Ke$ha. She's got the grungier look/act going on like Alice did whereas Ozzy and Gaga have always tried to be just a tad "artsier" in their theatrics.
For the record, Michael Bolton is on one of Lonely Island's new singles :P
And both are/were ridiculed unfairly. I love Alice – his songs are timeless, and his lyrics were rich, witty, and meaningful.
Gaga...not so sure about. But she cleraly has musical talent, and she clearly has a talent for getting attention. So bravo for that.
The musc business used to be full of characters...what happened? Guys like Alice, KISS, Michael Bolan and T. Rex, Ian Hunter and Mott the Hoople, Elton John / Captain Fantastic, David Bowie/Ziggy Stardust. Now we have boredom for the most part.
Rock on Alice! Love your stuff. Gaga, keep doing what you're doing.
Well they certainly look the same, I'll give him that.
Alice Cooper? Howard Stern? Should we add Lady GaGa?
