Lady Gaga admits she went bankrupt

Singer didn't know she was $3m in debt

Lady Gaga had no idea of how much money she was spending for her Monster's Ball Tour outfits and found out she was in debt for over spending.

"I remember I called everybody and said, "Why is everyone saying I have no money?" she said to Stephen Fry in an interview with the Financial Times "This is ridiculous, I have five No. 1 singles" -- and they said, "Well, you're $3m in debt."

Gaga added that money has never been important to her and, aside from her costumes and tour props, the only expensive things she's bought to date are "my dad's heart valve and a Rolls-Royce for my parents, for their anniversary. 'And that was only because my dad had a Lady Gaga license plate on our old car and it was making me crazy because he was getting followed everywhere, so I bought him a new car."

The tour did eventually net £138million.
