Actress and pop star Lady Gaga will join Ryan Tubridy from London to chat about her new movie House of Gucci on Friday night's Late Late Show.

Gaga plays the lead role of Patrizia Reggiani in the new Ridley Scott movie about the Italian fashion dynasty and she says she took the part so seriously that she lived as her character for a year and a half during filming both on and off-camera.

Ryan will also talk to the Oscar-winner about her experience with bullying and her friendship with fellow musician Tony Bennett, with whom she recently collaborated with on a second album Love for Sale.

"Lady Gaga is a pop-cultural phenomenon, whatever she turns her hand to seems to shine from the Grammys to her Oscar, she is a fascinating mega-star. I cannot wait to talk to her." Ryan said.
