Beyonce' and Gaga's bond continues to be solid. Whenever one of the two Queens is asked about the other they have nothing but, praise to say about one another. And of course when PrideSource asked B about her friend, here's what B had to say:
Last year, Lady Gaga made this remark in an interview with E!: "I was very excited to be working with Beyoncé again. It just sort of works out because we both like women." What did she mean by that?
(Laughs) Well... I'm all about women working together and supporting each other and learning from each other, and I feel like sometimes women get a bad rap. It's like we're competitive and we can't respect each other especially if we're both out around the same time - they think we're going to kill each other. And it's all about women learning from each other, and I respect talent and I respect people that work hard - and good people.
Queen B gives an exclusive interview to PrideSource, her first gay press interview in over five years. In the interview B talks about the influence her gay fans have on her art, A Star is Born and her music evolution. She also talks her admiration for fellow pop star, Lady Gaga. Below are a few excerpts:
What do gay people tell you when you meet them?

Beyonce' talks to Reuters, about her role in the upcoming 4th adaptation of, A Star is Born & her musical evolution:
What the movie has meant to her:
"It's when I became a fan of Barbra Streisand's. And I then saw Judy Garland's version of 'A Star Is Born' and I realized every 20 to 30 years a new star is born and a new talent represents that generation and era -- so I didn't think that I would ever get the opportunity to be the star," she said.
On Clint Eastwood:
"I met with Clint and I was so nervous and I know that it is the biggest opportunity of my life. I will work as hard as I can," she said. "Because I can't wait. And I am so happy that he trusts me and I am in good hands and I am so fortunate."
