Lady Gaga plans to learn sign language so she can communicate with her deaf fans.
The wacky singer, whose Born This Way album is number one across the globe, plans to take lessons with a private tutor.
Gaga, 25, whose real name is Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, has been inspired to take up American Sign Language (ASL) after watching YouTube clips of her deaf devotees signing along to her songs.
A source said, "GaGa's already campaigned for gay rights in the States and has spoken out about political issues like immigration. Now she wants to make sure her deaf fans feel included too.
"Once she's mastered sign language she'll be able to respond to the videos that are online, and include signing in future live tours."
Gaga has previously played gigs with a sign language expert by her side to interpret her lyrics for her deaf followers.
At a gig last year, the New Yorker dedicated her song Speechless to her hearing-impaired fans. She told them: "I wish I spoke your language....Everybody speaks the language of love and it's so beautiful that music brings everyone together."
