Staff at the Intercontinental Hotel in London have accused Lady Gaga of leaving the bathtub in the hotel room in which she stayed drenched with blood. According to hotel staff, Gaga might have been "bathing in blood as part of Satanic ritual."
Daily Mail reports hotel staff were speechless when they arrived to clean Gaga's room and found the bathroom covered in blood. One of the housekeepers at the hotel said: "Lady Gaga left large amounts of blood in the suite during a stay this summer. The incident was reported to the concierge, who was told to put it out of her mind." The hotel source said: "All of the hotel's staff are convinced she was bathing in it or, at the very least, using it as part of one of her new costumes or weird stage routines."
The unlikely rumor is strengthened by stories that Gaga is obsessed with fear of spirits and specters, though she claims that she is inspired by the spirit of her dead aunt. Daily Mail reports Gaga spends fortunes on a team of paranormal investigators who scan hotels and tour venues ahead of her arrival to make sure they are spirit free. Gaga, reports say, spent 30,000 pounds on state-of-the-art "Elecro Magnetic Field meters" to detect spirits and ghosts lurking in dark corners of hotel rooms and tour venues.
Hotel staff are speculating that blood baths may be Gaga's latest prescription for warding off evil spirits and specters. Daily Mail however reports that some sources have expressed skepticism at the claim that the red liquid found in her bathtub is blood. The red liquid was probably part of her stage costume.
MTV reports that Gaga has used fake blood in the past in her stage acts. She faked blood for a performance of Paparazzi and Poker Face at the 2009 MTV VMAs.
Gossipcop.com reported that a representative of Lady Gaga has reacted to the story credited to hotel staff, saying it is a "ridiculous" story. Gossipcop.com defends the "eccentric" superstar: "We know it’s a slow news day, but this is just too much. Of course, the blood bath rumor is just another bloody lie about the eccentric singer’s stay in London."
Daily Telegraph suggests reasonably that Gaga might have been washing off "the fake stuff she uses on stage."
