It's no secret Lady Gaga loves her muses, and over the weekend the singer paid tribute to Princess Diana, Amy Winehouse and Whitney Houston at her London concert.

The "Born This Way" star took the stage at Twickenham Stadium Saturday night and dedicated her new tune "Princess Die" to her late inspirations. Gaga invited a lucky female fan on stage for the performance and placed a tiara on the little monster's head as she sat with the songstress at the piano, according to MTV News.

Before launching into the tragic ballad, the 26-year-old singing sensation ‘fessed to fans that she expected "controversy" surrounding her tribute song.

"Since I was a very young girl, the people's princess was the most important person in me and my mother's life," Gaga told the crowd. "I swore if I ever had an audience like this in London, I would take a moment to appreciate her... This is for her, Amy Winehouse, Alexander McQueen, Whitney Houston and me."


True to Gaga's signature controversial MO, the lyrics of the song are quite dark and somber:

"Leave the coffin open when I go/ Leave my pearls and lipstick on so everybody knows/ Pretty will be the photograph I leave/ Laying down on famous knives so everybody sees."

Gaga balanced out the mood of the show by belting out other hits like "Just Dance" and "Telephone." She also covered John Lennon's hit "Imagine" and called the Beatles star the "greatest songwriter ever."

After the show, Gaga was clearly pleased with both her London Little Monsters as well as her performance:

"Twickenham, im not even sure what to say. I'll never forget tonight. London you were the fairest of the ball. now THAT was f--king fun," she tweeted.
