Last week, Elton John got laughs on "Saturday Night Live" when he said that Lady Gaga was the godmother to his son Zachary. "For those of you concerned that we are unusual parents, don't worry, it's not like we are the only two people involved in the child's life," John said during his opening monologue."His godmother is Lady Gaga ... which is ironic, because I've always said that Mars ain't the kind of place to raise your kids. And Gaga loves Mars. She says Mars has good schools and great discos."

As it turns out, John wasn't actually joking. His partner David Furnish has spoken out, according to ITN, saying that Gaga is "inclusive" and "tolerant."

"She believes that you can be whoever you want to be and that we don't have to live in a world of conformity ... That's the best message in the world. The freedom to be who you are, do what you want and love who you want to love," Furnish reportedly said.
