Brandi Susnjar was convinced her summer was uneventful – until she provided one, seemingly minute detail.
“Well I did meet Lady Gaga,” Susnjar said.
Susnjar was a summer intern for the Clear Channel radio company in Omaha, Neb., her hometown. She spent her time doing various tasks for the deejays and going to remote locations during the broadcasts.
Lady Gaga was in Omaha July 25 to film a music video and stopped at the Clear Channel studios to do an interview and sing a few songs. And Susnjar was in the right place at the right time to meet a famous icon, something she said was pretty surreal.
“She autographed something for me and gave me a hug,” Susnjar said. “There were so many people, I had to stand on a chair to take her picture when she was leaving.”
After her star encounter this summer, Susnjar started her fifth year as a broadcasting and journalism double major this fall.
Besides trying to cure her Mountain Dew addiction, she plans to graduate this December.
