London, March 19 (ANI): Lady Gaga has fellow pop star Amy Winehouse to thank for her rise to fame in the music world.
The 22-year-old, who has topping hit singles Just Dance and Pokerface to her credit, revealed Amy pioneered and put into fashion what was previously dubbed strange in the genre.
And the blonde singer is thankful for her seniors trend setting, which led to a revised mainstream that made room for performers like her.
I will always have a very deep love for Amy Winehouse. Because of Amy, very strange girls like me go to prom with very good-looking guys, the Daily Express quoted her as telling PopEater.com.
I don”t believe that what I do is very digestible, and somehow Amy was the flu for pop music.
