She’s rumoured to be back on the market after splitting with her ex Taylor Kinney – and it looks like Lady Gaga’s ready to put her ‘Bad Romance’ behind her!

But, while she’s used to dealing with a gaggle of little monsters, it was a certain much older monster that caught the singer’s eye during her gig in Auckland last night.

Kicking off the first date on her ‘Born This Way Ball Tour’ in New Zealand at the Vector Arena, the ‘Poker Face’ star singled out a lucky 78-year-old fan in the audience and told him he was “lovely.”

According to MSN NZ, the hitmaker gushed on stage to the pensioner, whose face lit up on the big screen,

"While you're sitting, I just want to let you know that I think you're lovely,"

"And I think you should take this opportunity to show that fabulous new sweater that you have on, and those jeans and celebrate yourself tonight."

The chart-topping songstress will perform two more shows in NZ, before heading to Oz on June 13!
