It's about as wacky a collaboration as Kanye West pairing up with JLS on a hip hop track, but Lady Gaga could be about to join the legendary Queen as a microphone-wielding frontwomen.

The British rock band, who used to be fronted by Freddie Mercury before he passed away, are reported to be negotiating a deal with the wacky new queen of pop to front them on a new tour.

Speaking to the Express, the electric guitar player Brian May, said he and his bandmates had been chatting about the possibility of a tour for some time now.

May said: "We talk about going out on the road all the time but there's a bit of a singer problem, to put it mildly.

"We get a lot of offers to work with people. I worked with Lady Gaga and she's very creative and is someone we've talked about singing, fronting the band with. She's not a singer, she writes her own material."

He added that, like Tony Bennett, they were open to doing duets.

Queen were recently awarded with a Broadcast Music Inc Icon Award for their airplay success in the US.
