It’s no secret that one of our biggest guilty pleasures is Celebrity Ghost Stories on the Biography Channel, what with it’s dramatic reenactments of paranormal activity as described by the B, C and D-List actors who had close encounters with the creepie crawlies. But to find out that Lady Gaga is terrified of evil spirits and hires paranormal experts and ghost hunters “clean” the rooms she stay in when she travels, that’s taking it up to a whole new level.
Gaga allegedly shelled out close to $50,000 for Electro-Magnetic Field Readers which are supposed to be able to detect ghosts. While she fears the ghostly element of the spirit world, she embraces other spiritual forces and Gaga claims to be the reincarnation of her aunt Joanne. In an interview this summer, she said “My father’s sister Joanne died when she was 19 and he was 16. And when my mother was engaged to marry my father, they were staying in his house, where he grew up, and a light came into the room and touched her stomach and went away. She believes that Joanne came into the room and sort of OK’d her for my dad and that Joanne transferred her spirit into my mom…So, when I was born, it’s almost as if I was her unfinished business.”
At least this explains why she’s never gone so far as to wear a Slimer-inspired dress. She fears the ectoplasm.
