Lady Gaga telephoned a “sweet and talented” schoolboy to praise him for his cover of ‘Paparazzi’. The chart-topping pop star gave 12-year-old Greyson Chance – who has become an internet sensation after his rendition of the song became a YouTube hit – a surprise phone call during his appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show yesterday (13.05.10). She told him: “Greyson, you’re so sweet and so talented, and I was so excited that you covered ‘Paparazzi’. Everyone loves you so much. Just keep following your dreams and work really hard, and stay away from girls and be focused.” The video of Greyson has been viewed by over 11 million people and thousands of fans have commented on the youngster’s natural talent. One wrote: “I got goose bumps listening to his voice. Very talented! Just beautiful.” Another said: “I was in total shock when I found out you were 12. Greyson, your voice is amazing! You have that rare tone of vocals that drives girls crazy.” Justin Bieber, move over!
