Lady Gaga seems to be going gaga on the King of Pop, Michael Jackson's memorabilia.
Over the past few years, Lady Gaga has proved that she's quite the fan of Michael Jackson and has splashed out a huge chunk of her millions on his personal collectables.
In December 2012, Lady Gaga spent hundreds of thousands of dollars at an auction to buy 55 items once owned by Michael Jackson, including the jacket he wore on the Bad tour, The Associated Press reported.
Entertainmentwise.com reports that the latest thing that she's set her sights on seems to be the legend's ranch, deemed to some as the ultimate celebrity possession.
According to The Sun, the 'Born This Way' singer thinks that the extravagant house would be a great place to show off her other buys: Judy Garland's 'Wizard of Oz' ruby slippers, a posh dress worn by Daphne Guinness, and a whopping 55 of Jacko's most personal items that she recently bought in an auction.
Entertainmentwise.com reported that a source saying that: “Lady Gaga is obsessed with Michael. She’s become good friends with his sister Latoya, and would love more than anything else to restore Neverland to its original state."
“His kids are all desperate to hold on to their childhood home so they can decide what they want to do with it properly when they’ve grown up."
The website reported that when Lady Gaga was speaking to David Letterman after Jackson’s death, saying: “There was some talk about the openers doing duets with Michael on stage. But Michael’s death was devastating for me regardless of whether I was supposed to go on tour with him.”
Furthermore, the website reports that the estate sits on 3,000 acres of land in California and was once a sight to behold, and including a petting ground and a fairground, as well as an installed rail track. But when he got into financial difficulties in 2008, the investment group Sycamore Valley Ranch Company bought his $23million mortgage.
