Sully Erna Talks About His Brief Time Dating Lady Gaga
Sully Erna talked about his brief time dating pop superstar Lady Gaga in a new interview with Revolver.
The publication mentioned how the 2018 Godsmack song “Under Your Scars” was inspired by Erna’s relationship with Gaga. The Godsmack frontman said, “Listen, I really don’t have a lot to say on this topic. What I will tell you is that I have an immense amount of respect for her. I was introduced to her through a mutual friend. We clicked and dated for a hot minute, and there was nothing but respect for each other.”
He continued, ” … There may be a lot of people in the world that think she’s kooky and crazy because she’s so wild with fashion and things like that, but she knows exactly what she’s doing. She’s an extremely smart businesswoman. And she’s kind and super talented. I’m proud to say that I shared some great moments with her. I was able to meet Elton John through her.”
Erna concluded, “She’s an incredibly great person and those are some very fond memories for me. And I’ll leave it there.”
Erna’s brief time dating Gaga came up in January when Godsmack drummer Shannon Larkin mentioned it during an appearance on the 2020’d podcast. Larkin was asked whether the two were an item at one point. He responded, “Yeah, that’s true, and that’s not, I don’t think, a secret.” Larkin also mentioned that this news may have flown under the radar for some due to the fact that Erna is an “East Coast guy” that doesn’t have high-profile girlfriends similar to fellow rockers Tommy Lee and Travis Barker.
“Under Your Scars” was the third single off of Godsmack’s seventh studio album, 2018’s When Legends Rise. The track topped the Billboard Mainstream Rock Songs chart in July 2019. It was the 10th Godsmack song to top that chart.
