Lady Gaga Calls Greyson Michael Chance on 'Ellen' A remarkably levelheaded, smiling Greyson Michael Chance visited Ellen DeGeneres' talk show today and got a surprise phone call from Lady Gaga herself, who inspired his now-classic YouTube cover of 'Paparazzi.'

"Hi, Miss Gaga," answered the beaming 12-year-old.

"Greyson, you're so sweet and so talented, and I was so excited that you covered 'Paparazzi,'" Gaga told the sixth-grade prodigy. "Everyone loves you so much. Just keep following your dreams and work really hard, and stay away from girls and be focused."
