Lady Gaga sells six million bottles of her 'Fame' perfume in a week
'Born This Way' singer makes the announcement on Twitter
The 'Born This Way' singer took to her Twitter yesterday (September 22) to announce the news to her fans, making her perfume the second fastest-selling fragrance ever after Coco Chanel.
The singer tweeted:
The reaction to FAME has been overwhelming. 6 million bottles in 1 week makes it the 2nd fastest selling fragrance after Coco Chanel.— Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) September 22, 2012
'Fame' was launched at a bizarre live show at the Guggenheim Museum in New York on September 13. Gaga started off the bash by clambering inside a giant perfume bottle and pretended to be asleep for two hours while fans were invited to touch the singer on the hand – but were asked to refrain from disturbing her from her slumber.
Once she had awaken, meanwhile, she preened herself in front of a mirror and crouched down – with the consensus of fans in attendance being that she was urinating in a champagne bucket – before she had a tattoo applied to her head. Yoko Ono, Marc Jacobs, Paris Hilton, Michael Strahan, Jason Wu and Lindsay Lohan were among the stars in attendance.
Meanwhile, the 'Bad Romance' singer has been told by her record label to lose weight. According to Radar Online, executives at Universal have asked her to "quit gorging on her favourite foods" after they had to order her new and better fitting costumes for the rest of her tour.
After a radio interview earlier last week in which Gaga revealed that she had gained weight because she had been eating at the Italian restaurant owned by her father Joe Germanotta, a source close to the 'Poker Face' star said: "The tight, skimpy outfits weren't doing anything for Gaga's new fuller figure, so Universal ordered more flattering and better fitting costumes for the rest of the tour."
They added: "She loves to eat, but because of her tiny frame it shows if she doesn't work out as much as normal. Executives told her to quit gorging on her favourite foods."
Lady Gaga is set to make a public appearance at iconic London department store Harrods on October 7 to promote her new perfume 'Fame'. You can watch a promotional trailer for the fragrance below.
