Lady goes gaga for ghostbusting kit

British tabloid The Mirror is reporting Lady Gaga spent about $5,000 on paranormal investigative to rid her of a spirit at London's O2 arena where she stopped for her Monster's Ball tour.

Gaga told her people to get the equipment because she was afraid of "bad energy." Supposedly they then conducted a sweep of the backstage area after getting the gear from Dan Webb's "ghost-busting firm."

Webb says, "When I took the order for the kit I had no idea who it was for ... but then I checked the listings and saw who was playing the O2." He adds that "Her aide said the gear had to be robust as they were ­taking it on the road - so they must be doing this every­where Lady Gaga is performing."

So much for client confidentiality, eh Mr. Webb?

Anyhow, this is interesting but not particularly shocking about Gaga. Plus, it's not the first time she's shown up on this site for her paranormal pop culture connections.

UPDATE: Newsoxy reports that Gaga admitted to getting the gear after she says she was troubled by negative forces for weeks. Says writer Susan Harris, "Gaga originally thought she was experiencing a mental breakdown, or hallucinations, that usually come with schizophrenia. However, she is still convinced that unseen forces are haunting her."
