Lady Gaga would give away "every dollar" she has if she could
The `Edge of Glory` hitmaker - who is estimated to be worth $112.8 million - explained being wealthy and gaining worldwide recognition was never something she aspired to, and she would be happy to give it all up.
Speaking in Sydney as part of her `Monster`s Ball` tour, she said: "Money and recognition were never a driving factor for me. I was driven by recognition by showbiz.
"What does come along with showbiz is recognition, but the money goes right back into the show. If I had to give it all away, every dollar that I`ve earned, I would."
However, the 25-year-old singer might not have so much cash to splash in the future, as she recently claimed her tour had "bankrupted" her.
She said: "I put everything in the show, and I actually went bankrupt after the first extension of the `Monster Ball`. And it was funny because I didn`t know!
"And I remember I called everybody and said, `Why is everyone saying I have no money? This is ridiculous, I have five number one singles` - and they said, `Well, you`re $3 million in debt.` "
