According to an interview with the Financial Times that took place in 2011, and that was recently revisited by a story on CNBC Make-It, pop star and Oscar winner Lady Gaga was in the middle of her The Monster Ball worldwide tour, which began in 2009 and ended in 2011. This tour began in 2009 and ended in 2011.

When Gaga was asked about the reports that the tour and its elaborate production numbers had effectively bankrupted her, she responded in the affirmative to the question:

“I put everything into the show, and as a result, I was forced to declare bankruptcy after the first extension of The Monster Ball.” And the fact that I was unaware of it added to the humor. And I remember calling everyone and asking, “Why is everyone saying that I don’t have any money? This is ridiculous, I have five number one singles – and they said, ‘Well, you’re $3m in debt.’”

It is not surprising that Lady Gaga’s career has continued to flourish after the conclusion of that tour. If you have a high-profile pop career, it is not difficult to work your way out of financial difficulties. That was exactly what Lady Gaga was able to do, thanks to a deal with Live Nation for a series of “extended stadium shows” as well as an HBO special that enabled her to make some money quickly after the cash-draining tour. This allowed her to do what she wanted to do after the tour ended. However, Lady Gaga insists that the pursuit of fame and fortune is not the primary motivation for her work:

“The beauty for me about being an artist is that the dream will never die, because I’m not obsessed with material things, and I don’t care about the money, and I don’t care about the attention of the public, but only the love of my fans,” she said. “So for me, it’s about how much more devoted and how much better an artist can I become.”

In the present moment, Lady Gaga is estimated to have a net worth of approximately $320 million, in addition to an untold sum contributed by an infinite number of adoring fans.
