Lady Gaga is being offered £200,000 to get into bed with Perez Hilton for his new TV chat show, 'Sleeping with Perez'
Lady Gaga is being offered £200,000 to get into bed with Perez Hilton.
The 'Edge of Glory' singer - known for her kooky exploits, which have seen her hatch out of an egg live on stage - is wanted by ITV bosses to appear on a new show fronted by the US gossip blogger, entitled 'Sleeping with Perez'.
With TV chiefs thinking Gaga - real name Stefani Germanotta - will make great viewing, they are said to be prepared to "break the bank" to secure her appearance on the series.
A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "Lady Gaga is the biggest thing in pop right now so it's normal to have to shell out more cash on her. It's going to be a fab show."
Other stars being lined up to appear on 'Sleeping with Perez' include Katy Perry, Kelly Rowland and Enrique Iglesias, although it is thought they will only be paid £140,000.
Bosses at ITV are reportedly hoping Perez's unique relationships with a whole host of celebrities will lead to fascinating viewing, as they may be more willing to open up to him.
The show - which is being produced by STV - is due to air on December 7.
