Lady Gaga 'fears dying like Princess Diana'
Singer has also penned track inspired by royal's death...
The Sun reports that a source close to the 'Born This Way' star revealed that she sees herself as a "pop version" of the royal icon, who died in a car crash while being chased by photographers in France in 1997.
According to the source, Gaga – who has penned a track inspired by Diana's death – often has dreams in which she is killed in the same way because of her fame and the constant media attention she receives.
They said: "Gaga has always been absolutely fixated on Diana and sees herself as a 21st-century incarnation of her. She knows she is almost as recognisable as Diana and is hounded by photographers and fans on the same level."
They went on to add:
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.
Earlier this week (December 7), Lady Gaga revealed that she has chosen a name for a new album and has already started working on the LP, despite only releasing her last album 'Born This Way' in May this year.
She is reportedly planning a duet with Elton John for the album, and is expected to announce a mammoth world tour to take place in 2012, which will consist of a record-breaking 450 dates over two years.
