Though she’s worn priceless Tiffany diamonds, one of Lady Gaga’s most treasured trinkets is a locket that was given to her by a Little Monster.
The gift was a necklace — a locket, to be exact — with a picture of her late Aunt Joanne inside of it. The box that the necklace came in was inscribed with a poem written by Joanne.
As Gaga’s fans know, Joanne — who passed away from complications of lupus at just 19 years old — is a huge part of Gaga’s life and story, so the necklace was especially sentimental to the singer.
“When I gave the necklace to Gaga, we were both very emotional and we both cried,” Muhammad said.
After Muhammad presented Gaga with the necklace, she wore it countless times: during the Bud Light Tour commercials, during interviews and even just while walking around town.

In October 2016, about a month after Muhammad gave Gaga the necklace, the singer even tweeted at him to say that it was “special” to her. According to Muhammad, Gaga also followed him on Twitter at this time.

Gaga and Muhammad have crossed paths several times since that fateful day in 2016.
You know when people tell you that dreams don’t come true, well they’re fucking lying to you. I still don’t have words to describe how I feel about this whole experience. Many of you know that Gaga has been a huge part of my life since I was eleven years old. On my 21st birthday, she took me onstage and dedicated “Million Reasons” to me and then also took me backstage. I have so much love for this woman. I can’t wait for the future and more moments like these. I love you more than you’ll ever know @ladygaga

In 2019, for his 21st birthday, Muhammad attended Gaga’s Enigma Las Vegas residency. During the concert, Gaga brought Muhammad on stage and dedicated her performance of “Million Reasons” to him.
“I have so much love for this woman,” Muhammad wrote. “I can’t wait for the future and more moments like these. I love you more than you’ll ever know.”
