“Gaga has been absolutely fixated on Diana and sees herself as a 21st-century incarnation of her,” a source told The Sun. “She knows she is almost as recognizable as Diana and is hounded by photographers and fans on the same level. Gaga has had dreams about dying the same way as her and has genuine fears that her fame could literally kill her, either in a chase or at the hands of crazies.”
Lady Gaga is currently working on a song about Princess Diana, and already has one single — “Paparazzi” — that discusses the downside of fame. Her bloody performance of the latter song at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards featured a staged death in which the pop star hung from the ceiling.
Do you think Lady Gaga is paranoid or prescient?
