The Darkness

Rock group The Darkness think Lada Gaga is a great mutli-tasker and say the singer reminds them of their mothers

The Darkness think Lady Gaga is like a mum to them.

The British rockers - who are supporting the 'Bad Romance' singer on her European tour - have revealed she is great to work with and admit she reminds them of their mothers as she is the "life and soul of any party."

Frontman Justin Hawkins - whose brother Dan is also in the band said: "She has a similar energy to a Russian lady called Agatha who makes my stage clothes.

"But she's also got something that really reminds me of our mother. Some of her energy. You know what I mean?"

Dan added: "And our mother is the life and soul of any party. She just has that same kind of energy, dancing around."

The group - who have released their first album 'Hot Cakes' since they reformed in 2011 - have already performed in Bulgaria and Romania with the pop star and bassist Frankie Poullain admits she is great at multi-tasking.

He told The Times newspaper: "It's funny; she reminds me of my mum as well. I wanna qualify that in the sense of the multi-tasking mentality, Gaga just goes from one subject to the next.

"She's very forthright and very fast. That's like my mum, who's quite hyper - and amazingly on the money."
