    Fashionista Lady Gaga is willing to break the bank for fashion. The singer revealed to actor and comedian Stephen Fry in an interview published in the UK's Financial Times that fashion has its drawbacks and that she was in debt to the tune of about $3 million at the beginning of the 18-month-long "Monster Ball" tour. Given Gaga's penchant for outrageous fashion and expensive couture, this is not a shock!

    "I put everything in the show and I actually went bankrupt after the first extension of the [tour]," she said. "And it was funny because I didn't know! I had five No.1 singles, the Monster Ball [tour is] doing great, and they said, 'Well, you're $3 million in debt'."

    The Monster Ball tour, which only concluded last month after starting in 2009, is estimated to have grossed about $227.4 million in total, so she probably paid off her debt pretty quick, if my math is correct.

    Now couturiers need to start lavishing Gaga with free clothing to wear on her next tour in exchange for promotion and advertising!
