Debbie Harry thinks Lady Gaga is "encouraging" for the US music scene.

The legendary Blondie frontwoman has criticised music in her home country for being too conservative and believes the eccentric 'Born this Way' hitmaker is a breath of fresh air.

She said: "Gaga is truly talented and slightly mad. I find her encouraging.

"It's such a conservative period in the US. We have even had attempts at censorship, which I find appalling and terrible.

"Artists like Gaga are necessary during periods like this."

As well as being a fan of Gaga, Debbie also praised Madonna as a "force to be reckoned with", though she admits she used to hate the way the singer copied her style.

She said: "Was I aware Madonna was copying certain elements of my style? Yes. Did I mind? Some parts yes, some parts no. It was love/hate.

"I loved her wildness and sexuality. 'Borderline' was the material I found most interesting. She is a force to be reckoned with in the industry - and I commend that."
