Singer Lady Gaga has claimed that she went bankrupt during The Monster Ball Tour because she spent too much money on outfits for the show.
In an interview with Stephen Fry for the Financial Times, the Judas hitmaker says that at one point she was $3m [£1.82m] in debt – despite having had five No. 1 singles.
Gaga, 25, said: ‘I put everything in the show, and I actually went bankrupt after the first extension of the Monster Ball. And it was funny because I didn’t know! 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.”
The tour, which ended last month, was seen by 2.5m people and finally managed to rake in £138m.
