Inside Lady Gaga's dressing room -- and will she serenade James Bond?

Lady gaga james bond We've got her love and her revenge, but what's shaking in the world of Lady Gaga lately? "Starfish" tuna and Daniel Craig, according to new reports.

The latter, and perhaps more exciting, is speculation from British newspaper the Sun, that says producers for the forthcoming Bond film (production title "Bond 23") are enamored with the avant-garde blond.

"Bond bosses are all huge Gaga fans. Her sound and sense of drama make her the top choice. [She] has the look as well as the voice to tackle a thundering ballad," the Sun says, citing a source close to the film. 

Bond song alums include Madonna and Jack White with Alicia Keys. Amy Winehouse was previously attached to pen and croon the track, but we all know what happened there.

Elsewhere in the Haus of Gaga, OK! magazine has unearthed the diva's tour rider -- a.k.a. her list of backstage demands and furnishings. Surprisingly, the list isn't very divalicious.

Standard fare such as soft drinks, chilled and room temperature still water, and an assortment of fruit and deli meats get the job done for the Lady while she preps for the Monster Ball. Though we're thinking she meant "StarKist" tuna? 'Cause starfish are a little crunchy going down.

It's no demanding all-white couches, tables, chairs, linens and flowers -- but wouldn't we rather see her antics on stage? Speaking of onstage antics, guess which actor/rocker just paid homage to the lady ...

That would be Jared Leto, who earlier this week, in a closed BBC with his band 30 Seconds to Mars, played a cover of "Bad Romance." 

Shall we even make a Jordan Catalano / "Bad Romance" joke? Check out Leto's version here.
