Elton John set up Johnny Depp & Gaga, thinks they ‘are destined to be together’

Johnny Depp

These are some new photos of Johnny Depp on Tuesday while visiting Abbey Road studios in London. As you can see, Johnny’s jaunty baker boy cap, scarf, and ciggie are fully intact. The man knows how to accessorize to full effect, right? I give Johnny a hard time, but he’d laugh so hard at my lack of accessories, and I’d deserve it.

Today’s story — surprise! — has absolutely nothing to do with Amber Heard. Instead, this is about Johnny and another lady … in Elton John’s eyes. If this story is true, then it took place a few days after Elton complained to the Guardian that Gaga wouldn’t take his calls. Let’s imagine that Gaga decided to stop being rude to the father of her godchild and gave him a ring. In response, Elton asked Gaga to meet him from lunch, where he had Johnny Depp in tow. Wait, what?

Elton John played Cupid and let his arrow fly at Johnny Depp and lady Gaga!

Sources say pop music’s “Rocket Man” arranged a secret meeting between the Pirates of the Caribbean hunk, 50, and Grammy winner Gaga, 27, with a romance in mind.

“Elton was determined to hook up Johnny and Gaga,” a source told The Enquirer. “While the meeting was under the guise of a future musical collaboration, Elton is convinced the two superstars would make an amazing power couple even though they’re both dating other people right now.”

Elton organized the meeting between Depp and Gaga like a “covert operation” at trendy Craig’s restaurant in West Hollywood on Sept. 23, said the source.

“Johnny and Gaga hit it off immediately,” said the source. “they bonded over music, flirted a little and basically got to know each other. By the end of the night, they’d already made plans to see each other again. Elton just sat there grinning.”

Meanwhile, Gaga — who serves as godmother to Elton and David’s two sons — is cating Chicago Fire hunk Taylor Kinney. And Depp has been seeing bisexual actress Amber Heard on and off following his split with Vanessa Paradis, the mom of his two kids.

“Elton has nothing about Gaga’s boyfriend Taylor, but he’s told her many times that she needs a more mature man,” said the source. “He thinks Johnny and Gaga are destined to be together.”

Oh Elton. That’s some terrible matchmaking. I can’t even imagine Johnny and Gaga hanging in the studio together. They’d make a terrible, awful couple. Gaga likes young, musclebound studs. Johnny is currently dating a bisexual blonde who loves expensive jewelry. Johnny’s already dealing with one twentysomething who’s pretending to be an artist. Gaga would drive him crazy.

    I actually LOL’ed at this one.

    God, I’d pay to see this happen.

  2. It'sJustBlanche says:

    I stopped reading at the description of Depp as hunk. I can’t stretch my imagination that far, sorry.

  3. Aussie girl says:

    That’s one bad picture of Elton

  4. blue marie says:

    Ha, if only it were true. But didn’t Elton just complain the Gaga’s not calling him back/answering his calls?

  6. tallulah says:

    They would be epic together. Imagine the pretensious interviews and high art they could make. Move over Amber Heard.

    • Gabriella says:

      YES! I would love to see that happening, it would be grand indeed!

      • bobbiesue says:

        Totally agree! I think it would be fun and crazy. Seriously, I saw Amber on a late night talk show and it was painful, awkward and dull. She went on about her dad’s cowboy hat and sort of attempted to posture. She wants to be a Jolie or Gaga; someone who’s intense and artistic but it’s not authentic as far as I can see. And Friday Night Lights… Meh

  7. brin says:

    Freaky Friday.

  8. DanaG says:

    LOL that is funny couldn’t you imagine those two on a date? Elton should stick to singing…

  9. mom2two says:

    This has got to be my WTF story of the day. For some reason, I just can’t see Gaga and Johnny Depp having a whole lot in common. I don’t know why, I just can’t see it.

  10. Sadie says:

    Please make it happen!!! I want to see Johnny depp in a meat suit!

  11. Prim says:

    So he is in London. I saw a tiny little man with odd facial hair and a daft hat the other day. Just slouching along looking a bit sad. And there it is, that hat. He looks awfully fragile and tiny in reality.

    • NerdMomma says:

      I actually thought he looked fragile and tiny in that picture! Seems like a lot of male movie stars are pretty tiny in real life.

  12. Lucy Goosey says:

    I love Johnny’ acting but would not sentence someone I loved to dating him offscreen. Maybe Elton John really is mad at Gaga!

    Or maybe he also sees the resemblance and impersonation of John Lennon and she was the closest he could come to Yoko Ono.

  13. sarah says:

    NO. Lets just squash this right now. This is so very wrong on so many levels. Just NO.

    • Sadie says:

      come on. they would be perfect together!!! fingers crossed they get together.

      • janie says:

        Seriously? I can’t get past the fact she is godmother to his boys, why??? Never be a hookup with the two! EJ your matchmaker skills are off.

  14. Paige says:

    Kaiser, Well actually on Ellen Elton John said gaga not talking his phone calls was a rumor.He recently went out to dinner with David, gaga, and Johnny a couple of weeks ago.Here’s a link for both:



  15. Frida_K says:

    Nicki and Zac and Gaga and Johnny…what a strange, strange double date that would make.

  16. frisbeejada says:

    Elton’s known him for years and years so if he’s trying to fix him up with somebody else he can’t be too impressed with the blonde bimbo, that one, who thinks she’s an artist, whatshername, thingy – although if he’s trying to fix him up with Gaga that’s way beyond desperation into sheer panic – it’s wrong on so many levels…but at least he’s trying – bless

    • Leah says:

      x 2. Just my thoughts, he has known depp for years if she trying to fix him up with gaga then its safe to say he doesn’t think heard is right for him.

  17. Tish says:

    Elton John is the best! Hahaha!

  18. Kitt says:

    Ugh. Did anyone else roll their eyes at “bisexual actress”? Like that’s a feather in her cap or something. Ridiculous.

  19. Tulip says:

    HA! I want this couple to happen, so many wrongs, it would be interesting to see how it would play out.

  20. TheOneandOnlyOnly says:

    But can Johnny be satisfied as a backup dancer because gaggles would never share the spotlight with anyone; two celebs that are legends in their own minds – only in lalaland.

  21. NerdMomma says:

    I find this alleged match-up insulting to both parties, for some reason. Like, it seems insulting to Gaga, and it seems insulting to Depp.

  22. Meh says:

    The National Enquirer just outdid itself in the “most ridiculous story ever” with this one! ahahaha!!
    It was a reunión some weeks ago (reported in some other media) but because Elton’s new album. Was he asking to them for some colaboration? that sounds far more likely
    Anyway, nice to look at Johnny’s pictures looking so good there in London! so if we need an excuse, so be it!

  23. Kiddo says:

    It would never work. The competition for the mirror, what with costuming and accessorizing would be immense, and neither of them would ever make it out of the house.

  24. Bread and Circuses says:

    Y’know, I just cannot see Gaga and Johnny hooking up.

    But I can TOTALLY see Gaga and Amber hooking up.

    And it would spawn a million tabloid stories, and it would be beautiful–a new uncool triangle, Johnny’s sugar-daddy dreams dashed! With Gagamber’s fiery passion taunting him from every headline and Vanessa cackling over a glass of very fine wine somewhere in France.

  25. Esmerelda says:

    Yes, yes, please! Lets put Elton in charge of all celebrity random hookups, please! He sure thinks out of the box!

  26. lrm says:

    gaga is not 27. god how long have they been reporting her age as mid-twenties anyway? when they used to say ’25 year old’ i’d laugh. ridiculous. if there were ever a reason to believe in the illuminati machine operating through the music industry, it’s gaga. something weird/off about that whole enterprise. i mean, she lists deepak chopra as one of her ‘best’ friends in one interview i read. all of these pop best sellers are besties? yea cuz they are all in cahoots to corner different markets and craft messages of cult-like dominance.

  27. Kelly says:

    I think Elton and Gaga would make a better couple.

  28. whateveryouwantittobe says:

    Oh shit! Please, yes, this would be great. I couldn’t see it lasting but it would be fun to see for a little while.

  29. Rhea says:

    LMFAO. This is too funny. I’m trying to imagine how long would it take for the both of them in getting ready to go out.

    “Gaga, love—do you think I should put on more scarves? Or maybe more bangles? Perhaps another necklaces? I need to look more artsy otherwise they wouldn’t understand my art. Oh! You’re dressing as a bird tonight? Can I have some of your feathers for my hat???”

    “NOT just a bird, oh my sexiest monster!! Can’t you see it’s a phoenix??!! I’m a long-lived bird that is cyclically regenerated or reborn.”

    “Right…right…of course…so can I have some?”

    “NO!! I would not reborn beautifully if you take even one feather from me! Go put some more eyeliner instead. You know I love it when you do a Jack Sparrow to me.”

  30. Emerald says:

    I hoped I was over Depp just because I want to move on but damn! my heart couldn’t help but skip a beat when I looked at that last picture.I just hope I was being over-heated due to some other reason.

  31. Mona says:

    Omg!No!That should’t happen and I don’t really see Johnny attracted by Gaga she isn’t his “type”.Johnny, go back with Vanessa and everyone would be happy!
