Despite two #1 singles and a #1 album, Lady GaGa is flat broke. Those gimp masks, bras that shoot out sparks, latex granny panties and stilettos ain't cheap.
“I’ve gone bankrupt about four times. My manager wants to shoot me," she tells The Sun (UK). “Every dollar I earn goes on the show. We’re finally getting to a place where it’s not bankruptcy. Then again, with another tour coming up I’ll probably be homeless.”
The New Yorker plays her first London headline show next Tuesday at the O2 Academy Brixton. Then later this year she kicks off a U.S. tour with Kanye West.
Never one to downplay her own talent or cultural impact, she said: “I can’t give any details, but it will be one of the most important moments in music ever.”
If you don't say so yourself.
All this focus on her career is wreaking havoc with the star’s weird taste in men. Lady Gaga says her ideal man would be ... dead German composer Beethoven.
Naturally. But at the moment she’s not seeing anyone. She said: “I’m a single girl. I like to have a good time." Our condolences, random boyfriend Speedy.
But, because someone's gotta experience the majesty of Lady Gaga naked, after all: “I just sleep with the guys in the band all the time because it’s easier.”
Good call. Sometimes it is all about convenience.
