The star has elisted the help of corpse expert, Professor Gunther Von Hagens, to spruce up the set for her next tour
Lady Gaga has enlisted the help of corpse expert, Professor Gunther Von Hagens to spruce up the set of her Monster’s Ball tour.
The pair have reportedly been plotting to give Lady G’s already controversial gigs a gruesome twist, and are said to have considered bringing one of Hagens’ pickled bodies on stage.
Best known for his Body Worlds exhibition in which he showcased preserved dead bodies, the German doctor was also the first person ever to perform a live autopsy on television.
And now insiders have revealed the Bad Romance songstress is ‘fascinated’ by the Professor’s shocking work, and wants to include some of his designs on tour.
‘She is fascinated by Gunther’s work and life. He grew up in Germany, a country she loves,’ one insider told the Sun.
‘Gaga sees a kindred spirit and is hoping to meet him in New York.’
‘They’ve spoken over email and it’s gone well. She is keen to have some Body Worlds element in one of her shows, with Vegas being the obvious fit.
‘It would be good to top this tour – which is already out there – with something nobody has done before, using dead bodies as part of a gig.’
