AceShowbiz - Lady GaGa made Tiffany & Co. security staff sweat after the 2019 Oscars by almost taking a $30 million necklace on a drunken trip to fast-food joint Taco Bell.
The singer and actress, who won the Academy Award for Best Original Song for "Shallow" that night, wore a statement jewellery piece featuring a 128-carat yellow diamond, last worn by Audrey Hepburn during the "Breakfast at Tiffany's" press tour in 1961.
Speaking to U.K. chat show host Graham Norton, Gaga revealed that she kept the necklace on all night after getting drunk on champagne at the ceremony.
"I didn't know what was going to happen that night - I was just so happy to be there," the star explained. "My sister and I were barrelling through champagne backstage and when we left, I didn't tell anyone, and I still had the diamond (necklace) on."
The star carried on wearing it throughout the night - and had to be pulled over by Tiffany's security staff as she almost wore the jewel on a late-night flit to Taco Bell.
She added, "Everyone freaked out that I was still wearing it - when I went to Madonna's house, security guards were side-eyeing me and eventually, when we were heading to Taco Bell, my car was pulled over and Tiffany's security politely removed it from my neck!"
The "Bad Romance" hitmaker released her new album, "Chromatica", on Friday, May 29, 2020, and also spoke to Graham about what it's like to release a record during the Covid-19 crisis.
"I am so excited - I've been making it for two and half years," she mused. "It's not odd. What is odd is being in the middle of a global pandemic! It is the way it is, and we don't always get to have things go the way that we see them in life. I've always had instilled in me that life can, and will, get very hard, so it's very important to roll with the punches and deal with it."
