AceShowbiz - Lady GaGa has had an insect named after her. Having discovered a new treehopper species from near the Pacific coast of Nicaragua, a graduate student from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign spilled which similarity the bug and the the "Stupid Love" songstress shared that inspired him to name it Kaikaia gaga.
Speaking of his discovery, Brendan Morris told the University of Illinois News Bureau, "If there is going to be a Lady Gaga bug, it's going to be a treehopper, because they've got these crazy horns, they have this wacky fashion sense about them." He further added, "They're unlike anything you've ever seen before."
Morris went on to detail Kaikaia gaga's distinctive features. "Also, the frontoclypeus, which is kind of like the face, was shaped totally different," he gushed. "And the genitalia looked more like treehoppers from the Caribbean or this Old World group, Beaufortianini."
Finding it after borrowing around 1,000 bugs from the Carnegie Museum of Natural History in Pittsburgh, Morris shared his fascination at the particular species. "Treehoppers are wacky, and I think that makes them especially suited to be 'spokesbugs' for the wide range of habitats they use," he explained.
GaGa has yet to make any comment regarding the naming of the bug, but she has been busy prepping for the release of her long-awaited new album, "Chromatica", which is set to be released on April 10. Less than two weeks earlier, she dropped her first solo single in three years, "Stupid Love", along with its music video.
The promo for the lead single off her upcoming album is kicked off with an introduction that read, "The world rots in conflict. Many tribes battle for dominance, While the Spiritual ones pray and sleep for peace, and the Kindness punks fight for Chromatica..." It goes to display a pink-haired GaGa putting an end to the fighting between two men in an alien world.
