Seems like a match made in bizarre celebrity heaven. Gaga wants to get her claws on Michael’s old stomping grounds, and she is serious! I couldn’t think of a better person to acquire the property, could you?
Now before you have visions of Lady Gaga marching around Neverland in thigh-highs, sipping drinks with her other celeb friends — consider this. Sources say she actually just wants to keep it in the Jackson family for the sake of his kids.
As you know the estate has had some financial troubles — mostly because everybody and their third cousin wants a piece — so the property was actually in jeopardy of getting sold off to some random schmoe. What’s more, the queen Monster herself has actually bought up a nice truckload of MJ memorabilia in recent times. Most people believe it’s because she doesn’t want to see it exploited by random collectors.
At the time, she tweeted: “The 55 pieces I collected today will be archived and expertly cared for in the spirit and love of Michael Jackson, his bravery, and fans worldwide.”
Okay, so we have established that she has good intentions. That’s all nice, warm and fuzzy feeling. So what about the reality of buying it?
It actually sounds like she may just become one of a handful of investors in the property. The UK Sun wrote:
“(Gaga) would love more than anything else to restore Neverland to its original state… Gaga would love to help with the financial costs by buying a share.”
So buying a share is not a bad idea, because at least with her good intentions she can make sure it doesn’t get turned into a joke. The kids would hopefully be able to come and visit anytime. There is supposed to be a petting zoo and amusement park still intact.
I say go for it Gaga!
