Lady Gaga arrived into Bulgaria over the weekend to a mass of fans waiting to greet her ahead of the launch of the European leg of her 'Born This Way Ball' world tour.

The 'Marry The Night' singer is due to perform in Sofia this week for the first show of her extensive tour's next leg, after playing across Asia, Australia and New Zealand earlier this year.

Gaga was greeted from her car by a swath of fans eager to get pictures with the 'Born This Way' star and have autographs signed.

The singer covered her face with a patterned scarf for her arrival, echoing similar fashion statements by Michael Jackson in previous years, and matched the scarf with a similar print dress accessorised with an orange and black belt.

Gaga accompanied the outfit with black fingerless gloves while wearing her platinum hair down, while carrying her pet labradoodle in a designer handbag.

Last week Gaga gave the first real hints about her upcoming third studio album by posting a picture of her new tattoo, which suggested that her new project will be called 'ARTPOP'.

The 'You & I' singer features on the cover of the September issue of US Vogue magazine, which she leaked out to her fans last week, due out on sale later this month.

Lady Gaga will continue her 'Born This Way Ball' world tour by kicking off the European leg with a show in Sofia, Bulgaria tomorrow night (14th August).
