Maybe it’s only fitting that Lady Gaga, whose stage name is derived from a Queen song, will now be performing for the Queen—i.e., the real one, Elizabeth II.
British paper The Telegraph reports that pop’s current fashion victim extraordinaire will jet over to the U.K. to belt out her jams during the Royal Variety Performance. England’s monarch will take in the shindig at Blackpool’s Opera House on December 7.
Gaga will be bumping elbows backstage with Bette Midler, Michael Buble, Whoopi Goldberg, Mika and 2008 X Factor winner Alexandra Burke, all of whom are also on the roster to perform.
December 7 is still a good two-and-a-half weeks off, so the Queen should be well-versed in The Fame Monster by then. Of course, Lady Gaga might want to leave the disco stick at home for this one.
