Lady GaGa Wants Dead Bodies For Tour
Reports suggest she's working with a corpse-preserving scientist...
Lady GaGa reportedly wants a set made out of dead bodies to spice up her already-gory Monster Ball Tour.
The Alejandro singer is said to have asked corpse-preserving scientist Gunther Von Hagens to design the gruesome display for her tour when it reaches Las Vegas next March.
Von Hagens is already a highly controversial character after causing outrage with his Body Worlds exhibition of dead people where the bodies are preserved by replacing body fluid with hardened silicone.
Eight years ago, he has also performed a human autopsy live on UK TV and set up a mail order firm selling human body parts - including a smokers lung.
A pal of Lady G said of the star's latest bizarre idea: "She is fascinated by Gunther's work and life. He grew up in Germany, a country she loves."
"He is quite a philosopher and has the kind of past she is drawn to. He was arrested and imprisoned after a student protest, braved the Metropolitan Police to stage the London autopsy and has ridden out the Body Worlds controversy."
"Gaga sees a kindred spirit and is hoping to meet him in New York. They've spoken over email and it's gone well. She is keen to have some Body Worlds element in one of her shows, with Vegas being the obvious fit."
They added: "It would be good to top this tour - which is already out there - with something nobody has done before, using dead bodies as part of a gig."
GaGa recently sparked controversy in the UK after appearing to be murdered on stage.
