Lady Gaga Admits She Went Bankrupt Because Of Her Elaborate Costumes
When you're Lady Gaga, money takes a back seat to more pressing matters like eggs and new planets
, as evidenced by the fact that she went bankrupt after her Monster's Ball tour
—and didn't even know it! The tour, which extended over 18 months and a massive 200 shows, was famed for its elaborate costumes that contributed to Gaga's fame almost as much as her music. Well, apparently those costumes cost her a pretty penny, so much so that she was majorly in the red. She admitted the extent of her problems to Stephen Fry
in The Financial Times
, saying "And I remember I called everybody and said, 'Why is everyone saying I have no money? This is ridiculous, I have five No. 1 singles'—and they said, 'Well, you're $3m in debt.'" You'd think having a dress made entirely of meat
would save money, no?
