Pop sensation Lady Gaga made a memorable first appearance on the “Late Show with David Letterman” this  past Monday (May 23), as show host Dave Letterman hailed the mega diva as “just about the biggest star on the planet!”

While there, the New York native said growing up in the Big Apple, she had showbiz dreams from a very young age and that she was very grateful for the opportunity to be sitting on Letterman’s couch. Gaga and Dave also talked about her getting a college degree someday in the future and why she showed up to his interview with no pants on. “I only liked the jacket so I decided that’s all I would wear,” she said.
