Lady Gaga, Stephen Moyer and Michael Ball join Jonathan Ross for this week's Friday Night With Jonathan Ross on BBC One.

In a frank and candid interview Lady Gaga says she will never dress down: "I would rather die than have my fans not see me in a pair of high heels... I'd never give up my wigs and hats for anything...

"You see legendary people taking out their trash, I think it's destroying showbusiness...

"I feel completely detached from the celebrity world, you never see me falling out of nightclubs."

She says she is bereft after the death of good friend Alexander McQueen: "He was the kindest human being, I feel left with nobody to inspire me any more."

And has no friends: "I didn't speak to anyone at the Brits...

"I'm an outcast from the music industry, I don't have any friends in the music business."

Lady Gaga says Her Majesty The Queen admired her huge piano at the Royal Variety Performance: "There is no greater lady than the Queen."

And the singer says she is more accepted in Britain than in the US: "People in Britain are the ones who've really been my friends."

She denies she dresses for effect: "Be whatever you want to be, it's not about emulating me... it's all right to be different."

Says she doesn't have time for a relationship: "I don't have time to get to know anybody, I'm single and alone... nobody would put up with my craziness."

Lady Gaga also says she doesn't have a house, her home is on the road.

She performs Brown Eyes and Telephone.

Stephen Moyer says he is besieged by fans wanting to be bitten: "They want you to break skin!"

He sets the record straight on comments about Robert Pattinson: "I said his character was the Diet Coke of vampires... I upset every 14 year old on the planet that day, I was getting hate mail."

Stephen says he fell in love with co-star Anna Paquin in public: "We've been working together for two-and-a-half years... When we're at home alone in bed I miss the crew a bit."

And he confirms they will marry.

Michael Ball says playing a woman put him into physiotherapy: "Big heels, prosthetic boobs which are very heavy, it puts everything out of kilter."

He reveals he'll star in title role of Sweeney Todd next year and confirms a new chat show.

A Hotsauce TV production.

Friday Night With Jonathan Ross, 10.35pm, Friday 5 March 2010, BBC One.
