  • 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!
