Here at Inkstain, we’ve long believed that our drought and water coverage has suffered from a lack of Lady Gaga-related items. Today, thanks to the LA Times, we can correct this shortcoming. The story, fittingly enough, involves Hearst Castle and what is apparently a leaking swimming pool:
[P]ark officials and the singer came up with a plan. Gaga would pay for water to be pumped from an on-site irrigation storage facility to fill the cracked pool, which was leaking up to 5,000 gallons of water per day.
The water will be returned after the photo shoot, officials said, and the cost of the transfer will be picked up by Gaga.
There is more, including a plan to repair the leaking pool and some sort of public service announcement.
If I was a better blogger, I would have found a photograph of Lady Gaga (whose real name is Stefani Germanotta) for which publication rights are not encumbered. I recommend a Google image search (may not be SFW).
