Lady Gaga Just Dropped $6.4 Million on Frank Zappa's Old House
The famously zany Lady Gaga is the rumoured buyer of Frank Zappa's eclectic Hollywood Hills estate, forking over $5.25 million (USD) for the six-bedroom, seven-bathroom home. This is a marked increase from what Zappa spent on the place back in the mid-1970s, which topped out around $75,000, according to Variety. Zappa and his wife Gail raised their four children here throughout the '80s and early '90s, up until Zappa's untimely death in 1993. Now, Gaga can sink her claws into the 6759-square-foot compound, which includes a main house, two separate guesthouses, attached staffing quarters, a massive outdoor pool, a rooftop tennis court, and a recording studio famously known as the Utility Muffin Research Kitchen by music industry insiders. The property also includes many "one-of-a-kind embellishments," including a dragon mural in the dining room, and "porthole windows and doors salvaged from vintage submarines." It's safe to say this home is fit for the queen of weird Lady Gaga.
