Fans of Lady Gaga, 26, were not so happy about the news that the star may be planning a summer wedding to her boyfriend, actor Taylor Kinney, 31.
The rumor came from Gaga's friend, "DJ Starlight," who told The Sun, “She’s told me he’s the one . . . I don’t think I’m dropping a secret by saying they are ready to get hitched this year. There’s a summer period when his shooting schedule will be clear and her concert and studio commitments will be minimal, so expect an announcement some time soon.”
Who knows if there's any veracity to this story, but if reactions on Twitter are any indication, Gaga's "little monsters" aren't so gung-ho on the idea of their mother monster getting hitched.

Pop stars have always struggled to keep their relationships private. Back in the 60s, John Lennon had to hide the fact that he was married with child so as not to upset The Beatles’ dedicated female fans. More recently, when Justin Bieber went public with his relationship with Selena Gomez, she received death threats from jealous fans.
One distraught "little monster" even insinuated that Gaga had canceled her tour to spend more time with Kinney, not to recover from hip surgery, as she had claimed.

Another emphasized that Gaga’s commitment to her career should prevent her from doing any wedding planning:

Though Gaga's little monsters appeared to be surprised by the rumors, she has always been outspoken about her desire to get married and have a family. In a 2012 interview with Oprah Winfrey, she said she wanted “a few” kids.
Fans seemed to be concerned that Gaga won’t be able to juggle her career and have time to be a wife and a mom. It’s interesting that people didn’t voice the same concerns when Justin Timberlake married Jessica Biel. When it comes to a woman’s life, even a major pop star “can’t have it all.”
