New papa Elton John
waxed philosophical about parenthood
this weekend during his opening monologue on “Saturday Night Live
.” “For those of you concerned that [David Furnish and I] are unusual parents, don’t worry,” said John. “It’s not like we are the only two people involved in the child’s life. His godmother is Lady Gaga
. That is true. It’s not a joke. Lady Gaga is his actual godmother, which is ironic, because I’ve always said that Mars ain’t the kind of place to raise your kids. And Gaga loves Mars. She says Mars has good schools and great discos.”
It was pretty surprising for him to reveal this information since just a week earlier, Gaga herself said, “I’m too much of a lady to talk about that on the air,” when asked whether she was in fact the baby’s godmother.
Ahh, but Lady Gaga is far from the only celebrity godparent out there. After the jump, many more. Some of them splendidly weird.
