Lady Gaga Invites Elton to Her Wedding, Italian Leaders Call Elton 'Taliban'

In February Lady Gaga announced she'd become engaged to her boyfriend of four years, Taylor Kinney.

And now the 28-year-old is ready to plan her glamorous wedding, with new details revealed in the most recent issue of Us Weekly.

A source told the magazine she's planning a 'family celebration,' wherein all of her relatives have a role.

She plans to serve her guests food from her parents' Italian restaurant, Joanne Trattoria of New York City.

However, that's not all, as the hitmaker has emphasized that she wants everyone important to her to have a part.

'She's just coming up with ideas now,' a source said. 'She's asked her sister to Natali to be the maid of honor, and her dad can't wait to walk her down the aisle.'

Gaga, who is said to be eager to tie the knot at her $23 million mansion in Malibu, California later this year, has also started making her guest-list.

The songstress plans to invite her good friend Sir Elton John, 67, to the event, as well as Tony Bennett, 88.

The blonde beauty - whose real name is Stefani Germanotta - released an album of duets called, Cheek to Cheek, with Tony last year and is said to have asked him to perform the title track at her reception.

Conservative politicians in Italy have swiftly rallied behind Dolce and Gabbana, accusing the British performer of trying to stamp out freedom of expression.

"I'm with Dolce and Gabbana and I applaud their courageous statement, this is freedom of expression," Roberto Formigoni, a senator with the New Centre Right, said as the row continued to make headlines around the world.

"The campaign launched against the two stylists by Elton John is shameful and intolerable. Elton John is a Taliban, he is using against Dolce and Gabbana the same methods used by the Taliban against (the French satirical magazine) Charlie Hebdo."

The party urged "all Italians to boycott Elton John, the international head of this racist, homosexual lobby which wants to undermine the natural order of things," said its secretary, Roberto Fiore.
