Published Sep 21, 2016Lady Gaga is bouncing back with a new single, new music video, forthcoming new album and, if reports are to be believed, a very legendary new house. On that last point, the art-pop megastar has apparently purchased a Los Angeles compound that formerly belonged to rock icon Frank Zappa.
While the identity of the home's new owner is protected by an inscrutable trust, Variety seems fairly confident in reporting that the home was picked up by Lady Gaga.
It's a seriously impressive compound in the Hollywood Hills, boasting six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, two detached guesthouses and an attached staff apartment. Zappa purchased the home in the '70s and lived there until his death in 1993.
The home also features an art gallery (complete with high ceilings), a basement vault where Zappa kept his archives and, most impressively, Zappa's home recording studio, which he called the Utility Muffin Research Kitchen.
The house was listed on eBay last year in an effort to fund Alex Winter's forthcoming Zappa documentary, though it looks as if it was sold through a traditional real estate agent for $5.45 million USD.
Take a virtual tour of the jaw-dropping compound in the video below.
