Taio: Lady Gaga is an inspiration
Taio Cruz has admitted he's a big fan of Lady Gaga, but he won't be taking any wardrobe tips from her.
The singer stepped out on the white carpet at the MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles and said his own year in music had been "absolutely awesome".
The acceptance and the embrace I've been given in the US and around the world for my music has been fantastic," he added.
Asked who he had found inspiring, he said: "Lady Gaga, obviously. She's absolutely rocking it. She's pushing the boundaries of what you can do visually. She has no fear which I love.
"She goes 110 per cent. Today she came in looking like a complete queen/princess. You've got to love her for that."
But asked if he would be following any of her fashion moves, he said: "I don't know if I could pull off the massive tiara thing and the massive train.
"I could rock a Kermit the Frog coat though. That could work."
