Alice Cooper has praised Lady GaGa for having the talent to back up her unique style.

The rock star told The Sun that he believes GaGa has already made musical history and predicted that she will be a popular choice for Halloween costumes this year.

He said: "I would imagine this year there's going to be ten million Lady GaGas dressed up trick or treating. She's great because she gets it, but she can back it up. She can sing, she can write, she can play piano, she's not just a costume queen.

"You can be as outrageous as you wanna be, as long as you can back it up with the music. She said if you're gonna do it, go as far out on a limb as you can, like Alice Cooper did. She's totally outrageous. Lady GaGa's already in the history of rock 'n' roll."

Cooper added: "If you are going to be a rock star, be a rock star. Go all the way. Go Bowie on them. Go Alice on them. Nobody will remember 90% of the rock bands, but they'll remember GaGa."
