Lady GaGa's boyfriend has told her to drop her eccentric alter-ego when she's with him.

The pop superstar has been dating Taylor Kinney for six months and the hunky actor has reportedly told his world famous lover she doesn't need to dress up in wacky outfits or act bizarre when the pair are together.

A source told In Touch Weekly magazine: "Gaga started living and breathing her character 24/7 because she felt her fans wanted that."

Gaga - real name Stefani Germanotta - is seemingly willing to go along with 'The Vampire Diaries' star's request and has told him she is ready to be "more human" because he has assured her he loves her for who she is on the inside.

The source added: "Taylor has convinced her that he loves the real Stefani."

The couple met on the set of the video for Gaga's single 'You and I' last July and are allegedly planning to move in together.
