Diane Warren took a moment to discuss her best original song co-nominee Lady Gaga at The Hollywood Reporter‘s annual Nominees Night bash on Monday at Spago in Beverly Hills.
The eight-time nominated songwriter, who’s nominated with Gaga for “Til It Happens to You” from The Hunting Ground, said of her collaborator, “”I love her. She’s amazing. She’s just a great person… I thought she was werider than me, but I’m weirder than her. But she says I’m weirder than her too.”
As proof of Gaga’s supreme talent, Warren referenced the pop star’s national anthem performance at the Super Bowl on Sunday.
“Holy shit,” she said. “She’s so talented. She’s just the real deal.”
