Lada Gaga in talks to host SNL

Lady Gaga is in talks to host 'Saturday Night Live' (SNL).

The 'Applause' hitmaker has reportedly been approached to follow in the footsteps of Justin Timberlake, Bruno Mars and Justin Bieber to host and perform on the show's upcoming season.

A source close to the 28-year-old star, who is set to release her new album 'ARTPOP' on November 11, told KIIS-FM that nothing has been finalised yet but she is in serious talks to host the comedy sketch show for the first time.

Lady Gaga previously performed on 'SNL' in 2009 and 2011.

The outspoken singer recently hit back at her critics but insisted that chart success is not important to her anymore because she doesn't need to prove anything.

She said: "People focus less on the music and focus more on how the music's doing; how it's faring from a numbers perspective, from a financial perspective.

"If you think I give a damn about money then you don't know me as an artist at all. I think that once you've had a few Number Ones in your career that you've kind of proven yourself and I don't feel the need to prove anything anymore.

"[Detractors] have no idea what I put into this, they have no idea the work that I've put behind my performances and what I do. In fact, people have no idea what it really took for me to get here. It doesn't bother me, it's just an interesting observation of where we are as a society."
