"It'll happen soon," the insider says of the superstar collaboration. In fact, the two discussed the possibility backstage at Spears' Feb. 1 Las Vegas concert, which Gaga attended as a VIP.
"During the song 'Till the World Ends,' Gaga walked to the pit and tossed Britney roses," an eyewitness tells Us of the "Applause" singer, 27, and the "Hold It Aganst Me" performer, 32. "Brit blew her a kiss!"
Mother Monster herself tweeted about the show less than 24 hours later, sharing a photo of herself in Spears' dressing room. "Me and Brit Brit," she captioned the shot. "She looked so gorgeous, the show was so much fun, and her dad gave us THE BEST BBQ. It was a #MonsterParty!"
