'Paparazzi' kid finally meets Gaga

Dreams do come true!

Two months after he captured the attention of Lady Gaga - and the world - with his YouTube performance of her hit “Paparazzi,” 12-year-old Greyson Chance has finally met his idol face-to-"Poker Face."

The "Chance" meeting happened Tuesday night backstage at Gaga’s “Monster Ball” concert in Oklahoma City. “I met @Lady Gaga!” he tweeted yesterday, including a pic of the pair posing together. “She was so kind, gave me some great advice and put on an amazing show!!”

Chance has spoken to 24-year-old Gaga once before via telephone, when the controversial artist told him to “work really hard, and stay away from girls and be focused," he said.

The talented twosome might be able to team up again soon: Chance is working on an album for Ellen DeGeneres’s new record label, which he inspired her to create.

    The kid sang a cover, big deal. Compare him with Michael Jackson at age 12 and see what a real talent looks like. This kid at best will be known not even as a one-hit wonder, but as yet another forgotten youtube phenom like star wars kid.

    I have to be honest, I was not a big fan (I'm still not), but I will be the first to admit, this crazy broad is pretty talented. And, on most of her songs, her vocals are awesome. Most of her songs I dont like, but the one's that I do like, I REALLY LIKE. I dont even want to like her but, like it or no, she's this generation's Madonna. I hoped she'd be a flash in the pan, but she's managed to stay out there.

    She might even be more tolerable if her costumes weren't just ridiculous most of the time.

    I'm kinda disappointed in that picture as well. The kid is obviously happy, but Lady Gaga looks kinda tired to me. To be fair she was recently tested for Lupus, I'm not aware of any announcement in regards to the test results. Lupus is sometimes debilitating and makes the sufferer weak and fatigued frequently.

    I too saw this kid's performance as shown on the Ellen show. He is really super talented. If he continues to play he can only get better over time. He can become an incredibly successful concert pianist in the future.

    Way to go kiddo, keep at it!

    I don't usually write on these walls, but a lot of these comments are disturbing. This is a child, with a great voice, that performed a song in public that was made famous by a person people pay to hear sing. If you don't like it, don't listen.... But to insult this young man is far more derogatory than anything you've labeled these two young people. You question Gaga's character? It's people like you, hateful and rude, that are really the problem today. Have a nice day!

    I honestly only like a few of her songs, Speechless among them, but I can see that she's a fantastic performer, in the tradition of Elton John, David Bowie, Madonna, and others.

    Nobody Has to like her music, but to say that she has no talent and is just producing garbage or that she's just in it for the money is really pretty stupid at this point. The evidence to the contrary is immense.

    I can't believe all the haters here. Love her music or hate it, she's a phenom, and she has tons of talent, and he has a monster work ethic. Get over your small, insignificamt, jealous selves. And who are you to start busting on this kid either? He's 12. Adjust fire. Grow up, people.

    Just because she sells millions of records doesn't make her good. If 5 million people ate cat poo, it would still be cat poo.
    Her success is proof that her "followers" are tasteless.

      Not a fan of Elvis are you? News flash, we all stand on the shoulders of those who came before. There is no one.. no one who is pushing the boundaries quite like her.. i think she"s fab. And for the record, i listen to blues, not pop... you know, those black folks elvis, the beatles, and the doors (and all your examples) ripped off. 🙂 cheers.

      Hmm..."copying" is different from "being inspired by". Nothing is ever TOTALLY original. Every human on earth takes ideas and inspirations from their surroundings and upbringing.

      Hey Jane, there's a huge difference between inspiration and copying. Those pictures resemble inspiration, not copying. Maybe your a little jealous of her success? Guess what, jealousy will get you nowhere sweetheart so why don't you crawl back into your hole with your chocolate, tissues and cry to someone who cares 🙂 Thanks!

    I saw this clip on youtube today and instantly thought of GaGa.....but I'm sure she would have involved gravy, pancakes, hashbrowns, and the whole works. Still funny, though.

    I don think the kids a dick (but Im sure getting a big head), and I think gaga was great, loved her concert, one of the best Ive seen in years. She reminds me of Madonna but for the 21st century. Reguarding the kid, he did good, hopefully his parents are keeping him level, it was a great youtube video, but frankly there are thousands of great videos, I suspect he will be a one-hit wonder. But at his age the world is in front of him, hopefully he can take this 15 minutes and do something productive assuming his kids or fool hardyness doesnt distract him.

    She was phony and two faced on Larry King. What positive message? I read her Rolling Stone interview. I couldn't stand her. At one point she described herself as 'deep'. It's so shallow to describe yourself as 'deep'.

    It looks like Lady Gaga is completely unaware of the kid. She dressed herself up in motley crue affectations and posed for a picture like a girls wearing a motley crue t-shirt, and oh I guess there's this kid in the picture with me.

    I love how people claim Lady Gaga is overrated. She has artistry in her music, creativity and innovation in delivery and a very positive and healthy message to her fans. There is a reason why she has captured the world stage and was recently voted one of the Time's most influential people - it isn't a fluke. Did anyone happen to see her on Larry King? She most certainly is not overrated - get over yourself.

    The kid is an amazing talent. The faces on the kids behind him as he sang the song were priceless.

    You can hate on Lady Gaga all you want (I'm not a fan or a hater) but she has created music loved by millions and she needs no validation. The proof is in the sales and the love of her fans.
