Lady GaGa Pays Tribute To Princess Di, Amy Winehouse

Star remembers the pair at her Born This Way Ball show in London...

Lady GaGa paid tribute to Princess Diana and Amy Winehouse during her Born This Way Ball shows at Twickenham Stadium in London over the weekend.

The Poker Face star dedicated her new tune Princess Die to the late pair, bringing a lucky female fan on stage and placing a tiara on her head as she sat down next to GaGa at a piano.

Before playing the tragic ballad, Lady G told her fans she expected "controversy" playing her tribute song for Princess Diana in London, stating: “Since I was a very young girl, the people’s Princess was the most important person in me and my mother’s life.

“I swore if I ever had an audience like this in London, I would take a moment to appreciate her.”

The 26-year old also paid homage to The Beatles legend John Lennon, declaring him the "greatest songwriter ever", before covering his hit single, Imagine.

GaGa, whose show featured hits Bad Romance, Telephone and Just Dance, wore 15 different costumes throughout the gig, even flashing her behind in a thong and fishnet tights - much the delight of her Little Monsters.

She later tweeted: "Twickenham, im not even sure what to say. I’ll never forget tonight. London you were the fairest of the ball. now THAT was f*cking fun.

After her show last night (9th September), Lady G joined pals Rihanna and Jay-Z at a Paralympics closing party, held at The Arts Club in London.

The eccentric star stole the show at the event, wearing what appeared to be a wedding dress - with of course, a classic GaGa twist, exposing her cleavage.

She completed her look with platform shows, a crown and a veil, as the low-cut frock just about kept her breasts contained.
