Calvin Harris Turned Down Gaga

Producer/DJ/artist and generally talented chap Calvin Harris had a massive number 1 record in Britain last year, but he might have had another: he revealed to the Sun newspaper that he was offered the chance to work with Lady ‘two number 1 singles’ Gaga but turned her down in January 2008, a good year before she exploded. He said “I thought, 'Lady GaGa, what sort of name is that?' So I replied saying, 'Nah, I’m not into that.' Fast forward a year and she’s the biggest thing. But I don’t regret turning her down as I didn’t think the song I heard then was that good.”
