Lady Gaga Has a Serious Phone Phobia

August 31, 2010

Even though she has an entire song dedicated to them, Lady Gaga apparently has a seriously fear of mobile telephones.

It’s being reported that Lady Gaga is so scared of the radiation emitted from cell phones that she insists someone holds her mobile device away from her head when making a call:

There have been various reports suggesting mobile phone use can increase your risk of developing cancer and brain tumors and even though there's no firm evidence, it really freaked her out. She's now insisting that whenever she makes a call, one of her team keys the numbers into her phone, then holds it up to her face so when she speaks it isn't too close to her head. She then listens to her calls on the speakerphone.

According to this random insider, the cell phone request by Gaga is only the latest in a string of oddball demands from the pop star. The source also stated that "everyone around Gaga tries to tolerate her annoying and weird behavior because they know it's likely to be just another phase." Good to know.
