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.' "Reuse content
