When we saw Polish pop queen Doda at the MTV Europe Awards last year, we thought she had a kind of similar look to Lady Gaga and we weren't the only ones who noticed! Lady Gaga herself has noticed that she and Doda may have a few things in common! So Lady Gaga and Doda are going to meet! We are thinking that any two girls who share a love for crazy silver leotards and Alexander McQueen shoes were meant to be best friends! So Doda is going to be a guest at an upcoming Lady Gaga concert and the ladies will hang out afterwards. Does this mean a Lady Gaga-Doda song and video? We hope so!
