Lady Gaga the university course

Students at a US college will soon be studying Lady Gaga as part of their degree.

Professor Mathieu Deflem says his "Lady Gaga and the Sociology of Fame" course at the University of South Carolina is the only one of its kind in the US.

The university's prospectus says: "The central objective is to unravel the sociologically relevant dimensions of the fame of Lady Gaga."

Mr Deflem is a massive Gaga fan - he has seen the Bad Romance star 28 times and runs his own fan site.
