    Just weeks after Lady Gaga caused a stir for her controversial "Alejandro" video, where she appeared in a nun's garb, an order of nuns from a remote region of Southern France will sign to the pop star's European label! The Nuns of the Abbaye de Notre-Dame de l'Annonciation are based near Avignon and won a search to find the finest female singers of Gregorian Chant. They won the recording contract with Decca Records, which is part of Universal Music, after a worldwide search, which took in more than 70 convents from communities in Europe, the US and Africa.

    The Reverend Mother Abbess said: ''We never sought this, it came looking for us. ''At first we were worried it would affect our cloistered life, so we asked St Joseph in prayer. Our prayers were answered, and we thought that this album would be a good thing if it touches people's lives and helps them find peace.'' These nuns communicate with outsiders through a grille to avoid intrusion into their daily lives. And it means they will have to photograph their own album cover, as well as their TV ads. Decca is also home to Amy Winehouse, U2 and countless others.

    Should Gaga join the nuns on a rendition of the Gregorian Chant?
