The people who thought Lady Gaga was broke with all her costumes and elaborate stage during her last tour were right. She was broke!
"I had 3 million dollars in the bank to my name and I threw it all in to make my stage. So I was bankrupt during the show."
Gaga made the comments during an EPIX documentary set to debut on the network later this year entitles "Who The F--- Is Arthur Fogel?"
"I remember I went home and I was with my dad and he said, 'I don't understand. 'Bad Romance' is out. You are all over the radio. Everyone is talking about you and you don't have a pot to piss in.' I said, 'Just let me do this. Let me just put it on the stage because I think if I can do this I can get Arthur Fogel's attention.' And I did."
"I remember he called me and he said, 'We want to do this.' And he got Live Nation to write me a $40 million check. And it changed my life and the life of my whole family."-DocFB
Diagnosis: From $3 million to $40 million to how much now????
I am starting to think we should replace the word over-time with BEYONCE. Hey J, can you Beyonce for us? We need you to work a little longer.
Beyonce did that with her last album, recording over 80 songs for the record that caught the music industry off guard.
"When I started picking the songs that I gravitated towards – because I recorded about 80 songs – it was the songs that were more effortless for me that stuck around,"-Beyonce
In part three of the her behind the scenes documentary of the new album, she reveals the recording of the 80 songs. She also takes you behind the scenes of the video of "Drunk In Love" which stars her husband Jay Z.
It also shows behind the scenes clips of "XO," "No Angel" and "'Yonce," with "XO" being directed by Terry Richardson.-DocFB
Diagnosis: I gotta work Beyonce in 2014 for sure! We all do now...

Diagnosis: Who Rule The World?
Chris Rock is being sued over the documentary he is releasing Friday entitled "Good Hair" as a documentary filmmaker is saying Chris stole her idea.
Regina Kimbell is saying her 2005 doc entitled "My Nappy Roots" is what "Good Hair" is based on. Her film won best doc prize at the 2007 Hollywood Black Film Festival and had stars talking about black hairstyles from the jheri curl, the fro, and dreds.
Kimbell is saying she showed her movie to Rock in 2007 and that is how he got the idea for his film. She is seeking $5 million from Rock. At this time, Rock has not released a statement.
I don't know, it seems kind of odd the lawsuit is filed the week of the movie's release, no?-Dr.FB
