Brian May is inspired to make better music by Lady GaGa.

The Queen guitarist collaborated with the pop superstar - who takes her stage name from the band's song 'Radio Gaga' - on her track 'You & I' track, which appears on her album 'Born This Way', and during the recording process he was in awe of her talent.

Brian told BANG Showbiz: "I had a blast working with Lady Gaga. She's fantastic, she's very inspiring.

"She's a very human person underneath all those layers. I love her, she's great. The persona she's built up certainly seems to be working."

Brian also confessed he is a big fan of UK TV talent show 'The X Factor' and was thrilled to see the acts perform Queen and Gaga songs on last weekend's Lady Gaga versus Queen themed show.

He added: "I didn't used to watch it ('X Factor') but I have to admit that I've got sucked into now, it's very interesting. There are a couple of very interesting singers on there."
