Gossip singer Beth Ditto thinks Lady GaGa is important to ''five year olds''.

The musician is a fan of the pop superstar but she doesn't think her songs can ever have as much of an impact on her adult fans as they do on children because it's completely new to the younger generation.

She told BANG Showbiz: ''I think her music is for five year olds. Like when I was five, for me it was Madonna, Cyndi Lauper and Michael Jackson. Those people were iconic. ''I'm 31 so that was like 26 years ago. I think that for the five year old watching MTV right now Lady Gaga is going to be an iconic person. In 20 years, the people who are here and talking to journalists will be like, 'Oh Lady Gaga changed my life, Nicki Minaj changed my life.' They'll be saying who influenced them and it will be Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, artists like that. I don't think it's as relevant when a 31-year-old is saying the same things.''

Beth believes it is harder for artists, including Gaga, to reach and inspire older music fans because they have been influenced by so many different types of music already.

She added: ''I think that what she [Lady Gaga] does is interesting and you know it's contributing in a really big way. But if you're watching Lady Gaga as a kid it's so much different than when you're 31. It's like yeah we like her songs but because we're experiencing them as 31-year-olds it doesn't have the same impact. The five year olds listening to Lady Gaga are ripping their hair out because they've never seen or heard anything like it.''

The Gossip have just released their fifth album 'A Joyful Noise'.

i THINK WHAT SHE SAID IS TOTALLY RIDICULOUS! THE FIRST AND FOREMOST THING IS THAT HER LYRICS ARE FAR FROM BEING APPROPRIATE FOR 5 YR OLDS! THEY SHOULD STILL BE LISTENING TO DISNEY AND NICKELODEON MUSIC, HER STAGE PRESENCE, COSTUMES, AND CHOREOGRAPHY(PLAYING PIANO WITH A BIKINI, AND BUTT IN THE AIR, IS AGAIN, NOT FOR 5 YR OLDS! SECONDLY, I AM 50 YRS OLD, BUT VERY MUSICALLY INCLINED AS WELL AS A VOCALIST/PERFORMER, AND LOOK BEYOND THE ECCENTRICITY, AND STRAIGHT TO THE MUSIC AND VOCAL ABILITIES OF LADY GAGA, AND I HAPPEN TO THINK SHE IS A VERY GIFTED SINGER/SONGWRITER!!! I HOPE TO SEE HER MATURE INTO A CONTEMPORARY ARTIST TO BE HEARD FOR YEARS TO COME.
