Lady Gaga reportedly turned down $1 million (£660,000) to sing at last year's Republican National Convention in the United States.

As revealed by the Washington Examiner, the pop singer said no to playing the event in August 2012, as did Dolly Parton and Pitbull.

However, Journey, Kid Rock and Lynard Skynard did perform at the convention.

Gaga's snub was revealed in lawsuit papers filed by Republican fundraisers, American Action Network, against production company Cater America LLC, who were booking entertainment for the event.

It is reported that the Republicans tried to get Gaga on side by saying that $150,000 would to go toward a domestic violence shelter if she played the convention.

Tony Bennett recently confirmed that he and Lady Gaga will start recording their full-length jazz album together this June.

Gaga was forced to cancel all the remaining dates on her Born This Way Ball tour after she sustained an injury to her hip but, in an interview with Rolling Stone, Bennett said that the pair were still planning to record their collaboration LP together in the coming months.

Lady Gaga could lose out on up to £16 million due to scrapping tour dates so she could undergo surgery for her hip injury.

She is expected to release her third album, 'ARTPOP', later this year.
