Born This Way hitmaker Lady Gaga unveiled a new song Princess Die during her performance in Melbourne, for which the singer is already getting flak. Before breaking into the song for her fans, Gaga said: "This song may or may not be on my next album. The song is a little bit sad".
"And I am going to play it because...actually I am excited and impressed with how many super fans I have", she added.
The 26-year-old singer may or may not include the dark song in her third still-in-the-making studio album. The glum song is nowhere influenced by the singer's mood.
Gaga said, "It's in no way reflective of the rest of music on the album, but it's about some of the most deep and personal thoughts I've ever had".
Lady Gaga is courting controversy after debuting her latest song. The song, which was uploaded to YouTube soon after the show, is her darkest yet and deals with suicide, News.com.au reported.
Although Gaga stressed that the song had nothing to do with Princess Diana, she spelled out the title just in case there was any confusion - the lyrics do touch on details of the princess’s life.
The end of the song, the chorus of which is "Princess Die, I want to see her cry", is clearly about Diana’s tragic death in Paris in 1997. Lady Gaga is currently in Australia as a part of her Born This Way tour.
