The rich performer Lady Gaga admitted she was frugal enough to try to steal a photo from a hotel on “The View.”
“I’m a huge, huge, huge Whoopi fan and there’s this one hotel that I stay at where there’s photos of you everywhere throughout the lobby,” explained Gaga. “So I went out with my friends one night and we had a little bit to drink. We saw this photo of you and I said, ’Oh, I love her so much, I just want to take her up to my room.'”
“I thought it would be funny to steal the Whoopi in the back entrance,” she added. “We got upstairs, me and my girlfriends were laughing our heads off and I swear five minutes later I heard (knocking ).”
“I opened the door and it was the hotel security and they go, ’We’re gonna need to have Whoopi back,'” said Gaga.
“And you sadly handed it over?” asked a host. Gaga replied, “No, no, I’m like, ’I don’t know what you’re talking about’ as I’m kicking it to the side!”
Just last month Gaga was in trouble and it had to do with another Hollywood star. After performing in a wheelchair during an Australian performance, Bette Midler accused her of copying her Delores DeLago character, who dressed as a mermaid, and sat in a wheelchair while singing “New York, New York,” back in the ’80s.
Midler Tweeted, “I’m not sure @Lady Gaga knows that I’ve performed my mermaid in a wheelchair for millions of people- and many of them are still alive.” She then followed up with another tweet, “Dear @Lady Gaga I’ve been doing singing mermaid in a wheelchair since 1980- You can keep the meat dress and the firecracker tits, mermaid’s mine.”
Gaga told Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush, “Maybe we’re just cut from the same cloth. I couldn’t hop around in that tail, so I just stuck myself in a wheelchair…I admire her and find her to be one of the most brilliant and incredible performers, so that’s all I’ll say.”
The two mermaids didn’t spend much time feuding. Midler tweeted again, “Let’s drink this over at the Emmys in September. Fabulous mermaids can coexist!”
