Courtney Love has spoken out about the influence that a lot of her friends have had on the work of Lady Gaga - and that it isn't always positive. 

Gaga's latest album ARTPOP has divided opinion among many, with some believing that she's been putting art before pop. As a result, she's had mixed reviews and suffered from dwindling record sales. 

Speaking to the Gay Times about her relationship with Gaga, Love said: "Well, I’m friendly with her. She started hanging out with a lot of my art friends and I think it influenced her and that’s great but it doesn’t necessarily translate for the masses.

"She tried to take it on and sort of acclimate it into pop."
