Los Angeles: Pop sensation Lady Gaga is set to become an ordained minister so she can perform a wedding ceremony for one of her closest friends.
The 25-year-old singer is preparing to officiate the nuptials for her New York City yoga teacher Tricia Donegan, following the legalisation of gay unions in the state in June this year, reported a website.
"I'm actually getting ready now to be ordained to marry one of my best friends, Tricia, who is also my yoga instructor," she said.
The pop star, an outspoken campaigner for marriage equality, is also considering overseeing gay weddings at her concerts once she becomes ordained.
"That would be fabulous. I like that idea - we can pay for the reception! Maybe we'll have (designer Jean Paul) Gaultier make me a priest outfit, so it can be official. Or controversial," she added.
