Lady Gaga’s £52k bathtub, as tour reports million pound losses

Lady Gaga's extravagent taste leads to Fame Monster tour wracking up huge losses

She notoriously has an elaborate taste for fashion, but it appears Lady Gaga also has a penchant for extravagant homewares, shelling out £52,000 on a bathtub – but it was all in the name of performance, of course.

The Lady snapped up the pricey tub for a single appearance on the X Factor last year, and now her habit for expensive props is reportedly hitting her wallet a little too hard.

The Sun reports today that the singer’s Fame Monster tour, which hits the UK in February, is registering losses of £2million to date, despite all tickets being sold out.

A source told the paper: ‘The gigs are losing money hand over fist because they’ve spent a fortune on pricey costumes, technical equipment and elaborate set designs. She spent £500,000 on one stage alone.’

Her spokesman added: ‘I can’t comment on figures but it wouldn’t be a surprise. GaGa puts everything into her live shows and she doesn’t care about the financial side of things. I wouldn’t want to be her accountant.’

Clearly what the Lady wants, the Lady gets!
