Lady Gaga names Lorde her favourite new artist: 'She has a strong sense of herself'

Pop icon Lady Gaga has praised 'Royals' hitmaker Lorde for retaining integrity in an industry where control is difficult to achieve in a new interview with KIIS-FM. 

Speaking to Ryan Seacrest about the New Zealand-based songstress, Gaga admitted that she loves how unique the teen is: "I would say my favourite new artist right now was Lorde. She has her own style and she does her own thing, and I like it when I see someone who has a strong sense of themselves."

Yesterday, the 'Applause' superstar told her Little Monsters that she has travelled to Flordia where the first date of her ArtRave: The Artpop Ball Tour will kick off and she's very excited to begin the extensive run of shows: "I'm in Ft. Lauderdale Florida for the opening night of my world tour! #artRAVETheARTPOPBall starts in 4 days!"

Speaking about the tour recently, Gaga admitted that it won't be like her previous productions: "This tour is unlike anything we've ever done! Get ready to PARTY. The stage is these huge panels [that] really engulf the whole audience to the centre of the arena."
