London, Dec 8 Pop star Lady Gaga, set to release a song about the death of Princess Diana, fears she might end up dying the way Diana died.
A source close to the singer says that she sees herself as a “pop version” of Diana, who died at the age of 36 following a car accident in Paris in 1997, reports thesun.co.uk.
“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. 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,” said the source.
The 25-year-old singer wrote the song on Diana’s death after dubbing the Princess of Wales as a “martyr of fame”.
Gaga has earlier revealed her obsession with the charity work and fashion sense of Diana.
In fact, the idea behind Gaga’s 2009 hit “Paparazzi” also stemmed from the death of the royal, with the singer saying: “Diana was the most iconic martyr of fame. She died because of it.”
Gaga played a piano version of her new song to a select few last month.
