Lady Gaga Pays Tribute To Diana With 'Princess Die'

Lady Gaga paid tribute to Princess Diana on Saturday night by performing a song written in her memory.

Performing the first of her UK shows at Twickenham, she premiered her new track Princess Die and told the crowd she had been a big fan of Prince William's mum.

Working the track into a show that included a string of her biggest hits including Poker Face and Bad Romance, The Sun reported the New Yorker took time to reflect on how Diana had been a big influence on her.

Gaga told the crowd: "The people's princess was mine and my mum's hero when I was growing up. We loved her... This is for her, Amy Winehouse, Alexander McQueen, Whitney Houston and me."

After the show, Gaga wrote on Twitter that she would never forget the concert and that London was "the fairest of the ball".

The singer has already let her feelings about Diana be known as she name-checked her in the track Dance in the Dark.
