Lady Gaga names her 'Born This Way' world tour

Lady Gaga has named her next world tour 'Born This Way: Monster Ball III'.

The singer revealed no dates for her next global jaunt but she said she was keen to keep the 'Monster Ball' name.

She said earlier this week that she had been pondering a name for her new tour which is expected to start next year.

Gaga also revealed that Madonna, Prince, Whitney Houston and German house music influenced her new album.

'I was thinking about Madonna, she was a big inspiration and I was thinking about Prince when I was writing,' she told NME.

'Whitney Houston's on there too, especially on 'Marry The Night'.
