Lady Gaga's 'Born This Way' album features Queen guitarist Brian May on the track 'You & I'

Queen guitarist Brian May features on Lady Gaga's 'Born This Way' album.

The legendary rocker plays on a track called 'You & I' in a collaboration which is a dream come true for the 25-year-old singer.

A source close to the star told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "It's always been Gaga's dream to perform as Queen. If it wasn't for Queen, there would be no Gaga.

"This collaboration with Brian May means the world to her."

Gaga - real name Stefani Germanotta - even took her name from a Queen song, inspired by her ex-boyfriend and former producer Rob Fusari, who would sing the band's track 'Radio Gaga' to her in the studio before she became famous.

The 'Judas' hitmaker has also spoken of her admiration for the band's frontman Freddie Mercury - who died in 1991 -saying she looks to him for inspiration because he had his own unique on stage personality.

She said: "Freddie was unique - one of the biggest personalities in the whole of pop music. He was not only a singer but a fantastic performer, a man of the theatre, who constantly transformed himself. In short: a genius."

Big electro tunes and even bigger costumes from poker-faced Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, in support of her fifth studio album, Joanne.

I really wasn't sure about Lady Gaga until I saw her on the Graham Norton Show, she had such a dry sense of humour, which was quite unexpected. She actually seemed almost human, not overly egotistical at all. That doesn't make me a fan of her outlandish costumes though.
I'm a massive Queen fan and have been since seeing them in Liverpool in 1973, hmm giving the fact I'm not 21 away there LOL, and have to agree with Lady GaGa that Mr Mercury was very unique and although not the tallest of gentlemen he filled the stage/ arena with his presence.
Have to admit to not hearing Mr May on this album yet, one to do this coming Bank Holiday Weekend maybe?
