Lady Gaga has attributed her latest chart success to the late Alexander Mcqueen – the singer’s convinced she’s simply channelling the designer’s feelings through song.
The Poker Face hitmaker developed a special bond with the Scottish fashion guru in the months leading up to his death and she believes McQueen’s spirit guided her to write equality anthem Born This Way, which was released on 11 February – exactly one year after the tragic star’s suicide.

She tells Harper’s Bazaar magazine, “(McQueen) planned the whole thing. Right after he died, I wrote Born This Way. I think he’s up in heaven with fashion strings in his hands, marionetting away, planning this whole thing.”
