Lady Gaga's BRITs bill

US pop star Lady Gaga has irritated organisers at the BRIT Awards by altering her planned performance at the event on numerous occasions.
Great deals on musical instruments

Lady Gaga has reportedly been billed more than £100,000 by BRIT Awards organisers.

The 23-year-old singer, who is well known for her elaborate stage shows - including covering herself in fake blood and performing on a piano on stilts - has infuriated organisers of tonight's (16.02.10) ceremony so much with her constant changes they have also moved her performance time from the coveted prime time 9pm slot.

A source said: "Lady Gaga wanted her stage show to be as big and as theatrical as her Grammys one, an idea which the Brits bosses loved.

"The plan was for a London-themed backdrop with models of all the major monuments. Gaga would arrive onstage on a pimped-up green Rolls-Royce and sing 'Poker Face' and 'Telephone'.

"But the Rolls-Royce is now gathering dust backstage after she changed her mind and ditched the plans."

Gaga wanted to change her set in favour of a tribute to British fashion designer Alexander McQueen - who committed suicide last week - but she has been urged not to do so for fear of it looking "crass".

The source added to the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Her aides persuaded her that it would appear crass. So on Monday morning she changed everything yet again and promised to stump up the bill for the new stage which is easily in the £100,000s."

Meanwhile, British rock band Kasabian have been banned by organisers at the show from using real flames during their performance.

The rockers who are up for Best British Group and Best British Album at the awards, will instead have a "psychedelic" display when they perform their hit single 'Fire'.

Lead singer Tom Meighan said: "There will be a big screen of fire, it'll be psychedelic. I wish I could be like Indiana Jones. It would be amazing if it was real."
