The singer, in the UK to perform at the Brit Awards tonight (February 16), had her entourage phone farmer Howard Baines, from the village of Crofton, to ask if they could borrow his shed for the romantic meal. “Sure enough, the following morning a blacked-out van pulled up. I couldn’t believe it,” Baines explained. “They went into the barn and sat and had their champagne breakfast.” A photograph of the set-up showed that Gaga and Williams‘ food was laid out on a hay bail (The Sun).
