12-year-old ‘Paparazzi’ YouTube star chats with idol Lady Gaga

London: Greyson Chance, the 12-year-old web singing sensation, finally got the chance to chat with his idol Lady Gaga on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Just a day after posting his rendition of Paparazzi online, Greyson attracted more than a million YouTube hits and was invited on show.

And that’s where he got a big surprise from the host— a phonecall from none other than Lady Gaga herself.

"You’re so sweet and so talented. I was so excited that you covered Paparazzi,” the Sun quoted the ‘Just Dance’ singer as saying.

"Everyone loves you so much, keep following your dreams, work really hard... and stay away from girls,” advised Gaga.

Greyson revealed he has had piano lessons for three years, but never taken a voice lesson to this day.

The Oklahoma lad also said he had never even been on a plane until producers invited him to the studio in LA.

Speaking of his luck with the ladies, he added: "Let`s just say I’ve got a couple of numbers and made some new friends."
