    Lady Gaga Opened Up About Being "Too Ashamed" To Be Friends With Ariana Grande And I'm Not Crying, You're Crying

    "Her and I connected right away."

    So, as I'm sure you're aware, Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande just dropped their new collaboration "Rain on Me" — and it's safe to say people are obsessed.

    Well, on Friday, Lady Gaga was interviewed by Zane Lowe about all things Chromatica when she opened up about working with Ariana — and it's super heartwarming.

    "Her and I connected right away," she began. "I said to her, 'Okay, everything you care about while you sing — I want you to forget it, and just sing. And by the way, while you're doing that, I'm gonna dance in front of you.'"

    TBH, I wouldn't have imagined recording with Lady Gaga to be anything else.

    "That woman has been through some really tough, really hard, life-testing stuff," she continued. "When she came into the studio, I was still crying and she was not."

    "She was like, 'You're gonna be OK. Call me. Here's my number.' And she was so persistent. She would try over and over again to be friends with me."

    "And I was too ashamed to hang out with her because I didn't want to project all of this negativity onto something that was healing and so beautiful. And eventually, she called me on my shit. She was like, 'You're hiding.' And I was like, 'I am hiding. I'm totally hiding.' And then this friendship blossomed."

    If that wasn't beautiful enough, Ariana has also been vocal about the new friendship:

    one time ..... i met a woman who knew pain the same way i did... who cried as much as i did, drank as much wine as i did, ate as much pasta as i did and who’s heart was bigger than her whole body. she immediately felt like a sister to me.

    she then held my hand and invited me into the beautiful world of chromatica and together, we got to express how beautiful and healing it feels to mothafuckinnnn cry ! 🌧 i hope this makes u all feel as uplifted as it does for us both. i love u @ladygaga, u stunning superwoman !

    BRB, someone appears to have started chopping onions next to me.
