Conchita NOT supporting Lady GaGa
Star reveals truth behind Gaga rumours in new issue of GT
More from GTea Break
Eurovision winner Conchita Wurst has told GT she isn't supporting Lady Gaga on her tour. The Austrian drag queen had been widely reported to be joining the US star on the British leg of her global tour, after attracting the singer's attention post Eurovision.
Conchita told GT: "I don't know where the Gaga rumours came from. I read it in the newspapers, and I said to Rene (my manager), I was like, 'Rene! Rene you check your emails again!' But no Gaga emails."
Though she said supporting the Born This Way singer would be a huge honour, neither party has approached the other to begin negotiations.
During the interview, available to download from today and in print from Wednesday, the newly crowned Eurovision queen also talks of her difficult years of childhood bullying, weeping as she describes how her mum helped the Conchita dream become a reality.
