Lady GaGa wants Steven Klein to direct her new music video.

The 'Telephone' singer is keen to team up with the fashion photographer - who has snapped a huge number of stars including Madonna, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt - on her next song 'Alejandro', her third single from her 'Fame Monster' album.

Gaga is famed for her outrageous outfits and controversial routines and videos, while Klein became a star for his raw and sexual realism.

For her latest video, the 23-year-old hitmaker asked to look like a prisoner.

The eccentric star teamed up with designers Viktor and Rolf for 'Telephone' - her duet with Beyonce Knowles - as she wanted them to create her a bespoke costume, which was inspired by spending time behind bars.

As a result, in some scenes in the video Gaga wears a dark grey leopard jersey jumpsuit with a studded bodice decorated with metal chains.

The US fashion house said: "Lady Gaga asked us to design a prisoner's outfit. This is how we imagined Gaga if she was incarcerated. She inspired us and her bodysuit was included in our brand new 'glamour factory' collection. It is styled with a huge pile of exaggerated metal chain necklaces."
