Lady GaGa is obsessed with unicorns.

The flamboyant pop star is fascinated by the mythical creature - which is typically depicted as a white horse with a single, straight horn growing from its forehead - because it is different and contains "magic".

The 'Born This Way' singer said: "I'm actually quite obsessed with unicorns. They are in essence a mythical creature. The unicorn is born magical and it's not the unicorn's fault and it doesn't make it any more or less special or any less unique but it can't help that it was born with that magic."

The eccentric musician believes her fascination with the creatures comes from her love of My Little Pony toys - miniature multi-coloured horses that also included ranges of unicorns and Pegasi, flying horses - when she was a child

Speaking on the 'Big Top 40' radio show in the UK, she added: "I had My Little Ponies. I was obsessed with the idea of a creature that was born with something magical that sort of made them the misfit in the world of the stallion."

The 24-year-old singer is believed to be including a track entitled 'Unicorn' on her upcoming album 'Born This Way', although it has not yet been confirmed if the song will make the final LP.
