Kanye West Bonds with Lady Gaga


Kanye West announced on ABC’s “The View” on June 10th that he would be touring with none other than…Lady Gaga. He didn’t say too much regarding the matter but he did suggest Hollywood's newest phenomenon is more than just an opening act. Some people are asking what the hype is all about with this oversized-sunglass-wearing superstar but the truth is, MCs love to remix her music. Recently, with the help of Kid Cudi, West has made a new version of “Poker Face,” calling the remix “I Make Her Say.”

Curious as to what Gaga actually means in “Poker Face”? I was and I did a little research to find out. You may think that Gaga is talking about gambling in her hit, but don’t be fooled. After West remade the song, fans asked Gaga why she would allow the rapper to change the song’s meaning into something dirty and sexual to which Gaga replied, “I said to them, You’re wrong. West was right. That’s exactly what this song is about. The record is about how I used to fantasize about women when I was with my boyfriend.” The pop superstar was actually really excited that West was able to delve so deep into her song and decipher the meaning correctly.
