The entrepreneur told Starpulse.com, that if he didn’t let Lady Gaga headline his Miss Universe Pageant in 2008 — she wouldn’t have reportedly performed “Just Dance” on television for the first time. Trump said, “I own the Miss Universe Pageant. And about four years ago, during what you call half-time, we always have an entertainer. My people told me, ‘Nobody knows who she is but there’s this woman with good talent named Lady Gaga.’ So I said, ‘I don’t care, if you like her, put her on.’ So we put her on… it was live all over the United States and all over the world and the next day, nobody was talking about Miss Universe, everybody was talking, ‘Who was the woman, who was the entertainer? She was unbelievable.'”Trump’s efforts did not go unnoticed. He said that Lady Gaga has been extremely grateful that he took a chance. He said, “She’s been very gracious about it… About a year ago, when she was so hot, and she’s hot now, she was performing at Radio City Musical Hall and there were a lot of celebrities, all sitting next to me, and her manager came up during the performance and said, ‘Gaga wants to see you, but only Donald Trump.’ And it was embarrassing because of all these people and she remembered. I don’t want to say we made Lady Gaga, but she was incredible and that was her break.” Meanwhile, Lady Gaga was named 2011’s “Entertainer of the Year” by the Associated Press. Votes were tallied from the 135 news organizations that compromise the AP’s membership.
