Lady Gaga inspired by My Little Ponies

Lady Gaga has said that 'Born This Way' was inspired by the My Little Pony toys.

She said: 'I was obsessed with the idea of a creature that was born with something magical that sort of made them the misfit in the world of the stallion.

She added: 'I'm actually quite obsessed with unicorns.

'They are in essence a mythical creature so what I'm trying to say is the unicorn was born magical and it's not the unicorn's fault and it doesn't make it any more or less special or any less uniqute but it can't help that it was born with that magic.'
