Lady Gaga is enjoying the success of being an award-winning actress and Grammy-award winning artist but she is grateful because she used to be $3 million in debt.

Gaga recently spoke with Financial Times and revealed that she went bankrupt during her Monster Ball Tour and didn’t even know it.

Gaga, who had five number one singles was $3 million in debt but bounced back because her work had stood the test of time. She earned $50 million in 2018 according to Forbes.

“It’s honestly true that money means nothing to me,” Gaga told Financial Times, Gaga’s most recently big-ticket purchases; a heart valve for her father and a Rolls-Royce for her parents anniversary.
