Okay so recently I’ve been going through a serious Lady Gaga kick. In fact…I’m listening to her right now. And I was listening to her before I even found this story as well as many others (through random news searches about the paranormal).
Just when you think you have seen it all, Lady Gaga pulls another trick from her strange behavior bag. The popular singer just spent $5000 on a ghostbuster machine in order to rid her performance venues of ghosts before each concert on her “Monster Ball” tour.It seems that the singer is so worried that she is being followed by beings from the other side that she asked her staff to do a spirit-sweep of the O2 London Arena before she performed last weekend. Reportedly the singer is worried about bad energy.
The owner of the ghostbusting machine, Dan Webb, said, “When I took the order for the kit I had no idea who it was for. But then I checked the listings and saw who was playing the O2.”
So, what does a ghostbusting machine do, you ask? According to sources, it tests for supernatural activity by testing electromagnetic fields.
“Her aide said the gear had to be robust as they were taking it on the road. So they must be doing this everywhere Lady Gaga is performing,” Webb said.
Lady Gaga is known for strange behavior and strange costumes, so the latest ghostbusting craze is only par for the course.
So of course I’m insanely curious to know more about this Mr. Webb fellow. All I can find seems to be that he owns a “ghost-busting firm” in Britain. I love Lady Gaga and totally “get” what she’s doing, but homegirl totally got ripped off. I bet it’s just an ion generator, or even worse, a white noise machine. Or something that actually doesn’t do anything. I saw a presentation once by a well-known person in the paranormal world who said he had a “telephone to the dead.” Everyone was amazed. It answered his questions! Or maybe it was just a radio turned to a static-y station (which is what my friends and I thought, amazed that people were buying into it). Fact is, since the paranormal is such an unproven field, there are a lot of people out there looking to take advantage of others.
I know 5 grand is a drop in the bucket for Ms. Gaga, but if she’s worried about negative energy, I doubt the machine will help her much (beyond providing psychological comfort).
