Melbourne: Pop diva Lady Gaga mistook Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard as a lesbian after an ambiguous question during an interview on a current affair show.
According to the Herald Sun, during the chat for A Gaga Affair, Tracy Grimshaw asked the pro-gay-marriage singer if she thought Gillard was hypocritical living with her partner in The Lodge, but also banning homosexual unions, reports News.com.au.
But the question was clearly playing on the ‘Born this Way’ star’s mind that she double-checked with Grimshaw once the cameras were off if the PM was in fact gay.
Grimshaw chuckled at the mix-up and the question was re-shot, with Gaga giving a much more diplomatic answer.
More than 100 fans sang continuously outside the studio where the interview was shot.
