Fabulously Wealthy Lady Gaga Isn’t In This For the Benjamins

Money is completely boring to me. It means nothing, except it feeds my art. Every penny I make goes back into the Haus of Gaga. My Haus of Gaga is something like Andy Warhol’s Factory. I have a small bunch of really creative people who make up the Haus and they work with me on my sets, my costumes, my jewellery and the concept of Gaga. It’s my team and we come up with crazy ideas and make them happen. I do make a lot of money, but I don’t want to own flash cars; I want to make Lady Gaga the biggest star in the world, and that takes a lot of work and creativity.
