Arctic Monkeys like Lady Gaga after seeing the cover to her 'Born This Way' album.

The 'Don't Sit Down 'Cause I've Moved Your Chair' band's frontman, Alex Turner, said he had a newfound respect for the 'Judas' singer after she revealed the artwork for her latest album, in which she appears as a motorbike/human hybrid.

He said: "She's like a motorbike on the front cover of the album isn't she? Anyone who has that idea is alright with me. Imagine that meeting. Like, 'I've got an idea for the front cover. It's me, but I'm a motorbike.'

"And she is a motorbike though - it's not like she's on a motorbike. She has no body, she actually is the motorbike. That's impressive."

Although Lady Gaga's album cover is a serious statement, Alex - renowned for his playful, dry humoured lyrics - always enjoys it when artists have a tongue in cheek side to their work.

He added to BBC Radio 6: "I like it when a band's got a sense of humour, whether it's in the lyrics or in something else they do.

"When I first started writing songs, I thought of it less like song writing and more as a few quips to make my friends laugh, and I guess that's always sort of stayed with me one way or another."
