Lady Gaga is now a ghostbuster? Â Perhaps not, but those who work for her might be. Â Before Saturday night’s Monster’s Ball Tour concert at the O2 Arena in London, Lady Gaga ordered a ghost busting kit. Â According to the Mirror, Lady Gaga believed that she was being haunted by evil spirits. Â In order to dispel the spirits at the O2, she ordered a ghost busting specialist kit, which was used in a pre-concert sweep to rid the concert arena — or at least the backstage area — of “bad energy.”
The spirit-detecting equipment, which cost 3,000 British pounds ($4,345), included electro-magnetic field readers. Â According to Dan Webb’s ghostbusting company, Lady Gaga’s people called and ordered that they do a complete sweep of the backstage area.
Webb told the Mirror, “When I took the order for the kit I had no idea who it was for. Â But then I checked the listings and saw who was playing the O2.
“Her aide said the gear had to be robust as they were taking it on the roadÂ -Â so they must be doing this everywhere Lady Gaga is performing.”
Aides who ordered the equipment for Lady Gaga said the pop singer was terrified of the “bad energy” back stage at the O2.
Could pop’s reigning queen be truly afraid of ghosts or think that “bad energy” or haunting spirits might inhabit the places where she will perform? Â Or could this simply be a great publicity maneuver on her part, the extension of which would be for the flamboyant fashion trend-setter and glam rocker to use the ghostbusting equipment as props in her concert act on stage during her Monster’s Ball Tour?
No. Â She ain’t afraid of no ghost!
Or is she?
Interestingly enough, there are several mash-up videos on YouTube of Lady Gaga tunes — like “Just Dance” and “Love Game” — and the theme from Ghostbusters. Â As good as they are, the original “Ghostbusters” video by Ray Parker Jr. is better.
