THE biggest pop diva in the world is going Gaga after a heavy metal anthem forged in... Mexborough!

Former Saxon guitarist Graham Oliver told how the chart-topping Lady Gaga quoted the lyrics from the band’s 1981 track Denim and Leather in a message to her millions of fans on her Twitter webpage.

He said: “I was amazed to hear that Lady Gaga has been twittering lyrics from Denim and Leather... I never realised she was a Saxon fan!” .

The Gaga tweet reads: “Just spent the morning at kuma’s, judas priest burger and cheap beer, denim +leather, brought us all together”.

Kuma’s Corner is apparently a Chicago burger joint that features creations named after heavy bands.

Graham told the Times: “I wrote Denim and Leather with Steve Dawson in a council house in Mexborough. I understand Biff Byford has been to Paris to meet her.

We are connected with her in another way – our old soundman Horace is working with her and Beyonce these days. It’s a small world.”

And she was anything but Poker Faced when she met up with Saxon frontman Biff.

Posting a scantily-clad picture of herself, posing with the veteran rocker, Lady Gaga tweeted: “Me and Biff Byford of Saxon! Denim and Leather, he said I look better in the blood flesh. (DIED)”

On his Saxon website, Byford told of meeting the superstar: “Got passes to see Lady Gaga for my daughter, but she couldn’t go so I went with our agent, Steve.

“As we walked backstage, we met the manager of heavy metal DJ Lady Starlight and a couple of members of the support act Semi-Precious Weapons and they invited us back to the dressing room for a drink.

“As we drained our glasses, we said thanks and say hello to Lady Gaga from us.

“The show was great, [and] we went off to the backstage bar for another drink. Suddenly Lady Starlight came in, and said that Lady Gaga would like to meet us.

“Then we had a fantastic 50 minutes with Miss Gaga – who is a massive heavy rock fan and Saxon fan – talking everything rock!

“She’s a great lady and it was a great privilege to meet her.”

Her eight-track opus, The Fame Monster was named the best-selling album of 2010.
