Halsey always manages to keep her cool, which is why watching her geek out over Gaga is so entertaining.
Yesterday, the 22-year-old singer/songwriter shared her excitement over Lady Gaga‘s new album, Joanne on Twitter by saying, “Lady Gaga is an icon and forever one of my greatest idols. I can’t wait to see where her new era takes us.”
Halsey’s tweet has since been retweeted 20,000 times and liked almost 50,000 times, most likely due to a reply the little monster received 11 minutes after sending it out.
“Hey Girl! We can make it easy if we lift each other! thanks for the shoutout!” Lady Gaga replied.
Halsey quickly responded, “I’m freaking out!!!,” and then took the opportunity thank her idol. “Thank you for being such an unprecedented artist,” she tweeted to Gaga. “You gave me the courage to be myself.”
Then she publicly reminded herself to breathe.
After freaking out privately, Halsey shared an adorable video of herself geeking out over Gaga to Snapchat. Watch her quickly spout out “Lady Gaga just tweeted me and I used to wait in the cold in New York to try to meet her because she’s one of the most amazing people in the entire world, and she just tweeted me,” in the video below
