When it comes to celebrity couple rumors, this one wins for being the most random. Elton John supposedly tried to play matchmaker by setting up his gal pal Lady Gaga, 27, with 50-year-old Johnny Depp. Despite their 23-year age difference, John thinks the pair “would make an amazing power couple even though they’re both dating other people right now,” a source told the tabloid National Enquirer—Gaga is dating actor Taylor Kinney, while Depp has been in a two-year May-December relationship with actress Amber Heard.
According to the tabloid, John invited both Depp and Gaga over for dinner, telling them that it was for “a future musical collaboration.” The source claims that the would-be celebrity couple “bonded over music, flirted a little and basically got to know each other.” They reportedly also made plans to meet up again.
Because this news comes from a seedy celebrity tabloid, it should, of course, be taken with a big grain of salt. But it definitely gets you thinking—and stranger things have happened. Gaga and her boyfriend have already split up a couple of times, and breakup rumors have been plaguing Depp and Heard since they first started dating in 2011. Depp and Gaga also both have that weird, eccentric quality that might make for a compatible, albeit interesting, match. Plus, we already know Depp is into much younger women.
What do you think: Would Johnny Depp and Lady Gaga make a good couple?
