Most women hope that their closest friends approve of their current squeeze, with even A-list ladies seeking the thumbs-up from their girls. Lady Gaga is no exception, after her best friend gave her blessing to her relationship.
Lady Starlight has gushed about the singer's boyfriend Taylor Kinney saying that the model is "totally awesome".
Speaking to Life & Style, she said: "I love Taylor! I have no doubt he’s the one for her!"
Lady Starlight, real name Colleen Martin, 37, has performed and collaborated with Gaga on stage and in the studio and is one of her closest confidentes.

But she admitted that she initially had reservations about Taylor -who is currently appearing in Zero Dark Thirty - and explained: "I thought he was going to be too hot to be interesting and cool, but I was wrong. He’s totally awesome."
She said she also approves highly of him because "being with Taylor makes Gaga really happy and comfortable".
And Starlight, who describes herself as "terminally single", said she looks to the couple as role models for any relationship and added: "You can have a really great relationship and really great individual careers and be there for each other and support each other."
Gaga is indeed supporting her beau and has temporarily relocated to Chicago where Taylor is filming drama series Chicago Fire, and has lots of time on her hands to be with her man after cancelling the rest of her Born This Way Ball tour due to a "labral tear of the right hip".
Starlight said: "She spends so much time in Chicago, because that’s where Taylor needs to be. So when she has time to be wherever she wants to be, she’ll be with him."
