The 'Born This Way' singer has responded to claims she failed to pose for pictures with fans at London event.

Lady Gaga was booed by fans after she arrived late for the UK launch of her new perfume Fame at Harrods last night (7th October).

Hundreds of the 'Born This Way' star's Little Monsters had queued outside the department store in London to see the singer, but were left upset when she failed to spend time with them on the black carpet.

Lady Gaga had been due at Harrods at 7.45pm, but her horse drawn carriage did not arrive until 8.45pm.

She then headed inside to meet a special group of fans who had won a competition to attend a tea party host by the American star.

Alex George, 18, told the Evening Standard that she thought Lady Gaga's brief appearance on the black carpet was "a bit of a let down".

Luke Reader added: "It's quite ironic it's called Fame because it just shows how much fame has changed her. She couldn't even spend five minutes talking and having some pictures taken. It's not on."

Lady Gaga has since taken to Twitter to say that she was "overwhelmed" by the large number of fans who had come to meet her in London.

The 'Judas' singer was wearing an unusual piece of hand jewellery on her left hand at the Fame launch:

She wrote: "Im overwhelmed by the thousands in London who came to @Harrods I only wish I could've taken pictures w each of u. Thanku so much for coming."

Lady Gaga's new perfume Fame was only released last month but has already become one of the biggest sellers behind Coco Chanel.
