Melbourne: Lady Gaga is courting controversy after debuting her latest song ‘Princess Die’ in Melbourne on Tuesday.

The 26-year-old singer told her fans that the piano ballad reflected the most “deep and personal thoughts” she’s ever had.

The song, which was uploaded to YouTube soon after the show, is her darkest yet and deals with suicide, reported.

Although Gaga stressed that the song had nothing to do with Princess Diana, she spelled out the title just in case there was any confusion - the lyrics do touch on details of the princess’s life.

The end of the song, the chorus of which is “Princess Die, I want to see her cry”, is clearly about Diana’s tragic death in Paris in 1987.
