Lady Gaga - Lady Gaga Had To Get Drunk To Sign Her Tax Returns
Lady Gaga had to get drunk to sign off on her taxes this year (11) because she was required to pay such a huge sum to the U.S. Internal Revenue Service.
The frugal pop superstar admits she hates paying out large cheques and she needed a little alcoholic help to face her biggest tax bill yet.
In a taped TV interview with comedienne Ellen DeGeneres, which will air in America on Friday (09Dec11), the Poker Face singer says, "When I signed my tax returns this year, I had to get completely wasted. They (aides) were just holding me up. It’s unbelievable."
The money-conscious star insists her careful habits have prevented her from buying a home: "I’m a gypsy... I think, 'Well, gosh, what a waste of money to buy a place and I’m on the road. Even though it might not seem like a big deal because I’m a pop singer or whatever it still hurts to write a cheque. It’s a lot of money."
