    Lady Gaga takes her diva status as seriously as a terminal disease diagnosis! The pop queen will be performing at the most expensive stage ever on Lollapalooza. The stage is being designed by the bosses of the concert especially for Gaga. Lollapalooza is scheduled to occur in Chicago this August and the custom-built stage has a steep price tag of $150,000. Perry Farrell, the event's founder and singer of Jane's Addiction, believes that Gaga is worth every penny of the price! I'm inclined to agree.

    Farrell was quoted as saying, "We're bringing in a special stage for her, investing like a hundred grand to house what she's doing. That's massive. Only Lady Gaga could step in and say 'I'm a headliner'" Clearly, Farrell and his fellow Lollapaloozers are convinced that they will make back on their investment (and then some) by having Gaga perform! She will certainly put asses in the seats and sell tickets for the event just by attaching he name to it! The three-day festival will occur for August 6 through 8.

    In other Gaga news, her publicist did reveal that she is eating smaller portions of food in order to reduce her weight but has also guffawed at the reports which claimed that Gaga is on a dangerous baby food diet in a desperate attempt to stay skinny. Gaga eating strained peas and sweet potatoes? No freaking way! I don't believe it for a second. A source had claimed that she was replacing meals not with Slim Fast but with jars of baby food. Gross! Gaga's rep squashed that rumor.

    Is Gaga worth a $150,000 stage? Shouldn't it be decorated with Swarovski crystals and feathers, in homage to Gaga's flamboyant fashion-forward frocks?
