Lady Gaga pressured to drop 'Princess Die' song from album

Lady Gaga is no stranger to controversy, but her latest stunt seems to have pushed the boundaries of good taste too far.


The singer has dropped a song she wrote for the late Princess of Wales, titled “Princess Die,” amidst worry that it would offend fans of the late Diana.


Gaga had incorporated the song into her set lists in the U.K. last year, telling crowds it was her way to pay tribute to the royal who died in a car crash in Paris in 1997.

At one show, she said: "Since I was a very young girl, the People's Princess was the most important person in me and my mother's life.


"I predict controversy but I don't care. Let's take a moment to appreciate her presence."


After adverse reactions from audiences, Interscope bosses stepped in and forced the 27-year-old singer to drop the controversial track from her upcoming album, Artpop.


Lady Gaga has since made light of the omission, saying the track was left off because it wasn’t as good as her other songs.
