Carson Daly Tells Story Of Lady Gaga’s & Christina Aguilera’s First Meeting

In case you haven’t noticed, AMP’s been spinning the new version of Lady Gaga’s “Do What U Want,” featuring Christina Aguilera.

It all came about after Mother Monster performed alongside Xtina during the finale of The Voice.

The duet went over so well, the divas dashed into the studio to record a professional version of the track and the rest, they say, is history.

What you may not know is that the two ladies had never met before that performance. For years, gossip blogs insinuated there was major friction between Gaga and Christina, but they put those longtime rumors to rest with their surprise collaboration.

As host of The Voice, Carson had a behind-the-scenes look at the meeting of two of pop’s greatest voices and treated us with a little bit of the back story during Angie’s 3 Things You Need To Know.

“That was a nice moment in pop culture history on the set of The Voice, Angie, when that happened,” Carson described. “It was so cool to see that actual ‘Hi, Gaga,’ ‘Hi, Christina.'”

The two ladies reminisced about the days of TRL. We all know Aguilera was a frequent guest, but Lady Gaga admitted that she used to be one of the kids in the crowd on the street holding up a big sign.

“Both, you know, have a rep for, I don’t know, two big sort of divas meet that there’d be friction, and it couldn’t have been more pleasant and awesome.”

“It’s a nice story to spread publicly,” he continued. “Because I feel like, you know, on Twitter and everywhere else you just read all these things, but a lot of it is made up.”
