Lady Gaga is such a huge star that she pretty much gets what she wants! She’s set to perform at the upcoming Lollapalooza Festival in Chicago, and apparently her set alone cost the production a pretty penny.
According to MTV, Gaga demanded a massive stage for her performance that takes place in August in Grant Park. Lollapalooza founder (Janes Addiction frontman) Perry Farrell tells MTV, "I actually said, 'Who's the chick with all the clothes, because this is my festival and she's got [a lot of clothes racks]. We've got one rack.'”
Farrell continued, “But she had this sweet smile. And she was real mischievous, so I liked her. She asked for a giant stage, so we spent like $100,000 to give her a giant stage. We spent close to $150,000 to house the production she's gonna do. And I say yeah, let's do it."
He’s a smart man! The festival has a lot of great bands this year, like Greenday, The Strokes, and MGMT, but nothing comes close to Gaga. It’s probably the main reason people bought tickets. So spending the extra money on her stage is the smart thing to do!
