International superstar Lady GaGA brought London's O2 Arena to a standstill during her Monster Ball tour on Thursday night.

After a spirited rendition of Shakin' Stevens's 'Merry Christmas Everyone' Gaga took a moment to remember that the holiday's can mean sorrow as much as song.

During her performance the eccentric star pulled out a Santa doll and attempted to bite its head off.

Then she stamped on the doll with her stilettos and screamed: "I hate the holidays!" in front of the 20,000 strong London crowd.

GaGa also made a surprise appearance at a gay favorite Semi Precious Weapons gig in London's Islington, where frontman Justin Tranter introduced her as "My sister, my soulmate, Lady f**king GaGa"
