My friend sent me this.  I don't know where he got it:

Queen guitarist Brian May features on Lady Gaga's 'Born This Way' album.

The legendary rocker plays on a track called 'You & I' in a collaboration which is a dream come true for the 25-year-old singer.

A source close to the star told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "It's always been Gaga's dream to perform as Queen. If it wasn't for Queen, there would be no Gaga.

"This collaboration with Brian May means the world to her."

Gaga - real name Stefani Germanotta - even took her name from a Queen song, inspired by her ex-boyfriend and former producer Rob Fusari, who would sing the band's track 'Radio Gaga' to her in the studio before she became famous.

The 'Judas' hitmaker has also spoken of her admiration for the band's frontman Freddie Mercury - who died in 1991 - saying she looks to him for inspiration because he had his own unique on stage personality.

She said: "Freddie was unique - one of the biggest personalities in the whole of pop music. He was not only a singer but a fantastic performer, a man of the theatre, who constantly transformed himself. In short: a genius."

- Don't be a drag just be a queen!

Ooh, I wonder how that will turn out. Bit strange, seeing as there's already a Queen song called "You and I".

I don't like such news.  I'd better watch Brian performing with Paul Rodgers than with some so-called "Ga Ga's".

I think Lady Ga Ga has been a contribution to pop music. She invented herself, she makes her own music, she has a lot of talent. I don't think there is anyone who can dispute that. She's not a pure invention like that kid Bieber. So it's great news that Brian will get closer to her, and maybe that way he can bring Queen music closer to younger people.

Is it only me finds this a strange collaboration - no, not on the music front, but the fact that Brian so frequently shoves his animal welfare rights down our throats and then appears with an artiste who wears an outfit of meat in order  to shock.  The word 'hypocrite' fairly springs to mind!

Hello Queen fans around the globe 
   In Lady Ga Gas defense I must tell you Although some of her material IMO isnt kind to my ears but I have listened to all of her songs and the Woman has talent of mass amounts, I was watching her on the piano and singing and I kid you not She Radiates Freddies spirit and energy I mean come on we are all Queen fans and To see and hear Todays Hottest Artist citing Queen and Freddie being her main Influence just warms my sole deep, Her music genre is quite similar to the Hot space Lp, Like i stated earlier about Lady Ga Ga rings true for Hot Space A Kind of Magic, and Two songs on The Miracle.
   To all Lady Ga Ga haters out their, Go on Youtube and give You and I an open ear to it is a sheer brilliant track Brians searing guitar and i do believe he sang harmony vocals as well and not just that you can tell just by the tempo and Percussion heavy that non other than Mutt Lange had his legendary fingers on the mixing board.
  Ive always been curious on how queen would sound with Mutt Lange assistance in Production and now I know
and IT KICKS EFFING ASS
 QUEEN ROCKS! ALWAYS AND FOREVER
