Lady Gaga buys fish to help her recover from hip operation


Lady Gaga has installed a huge aquarium at her home to help her recuperate from surgery.

The Edge of Glory singer is reported to have imported 27 Koi from Japan for the tank, following a dream she had about the fish. The cost is thought to be around $73,000/£40,000.

The 26-year-old singer recently had emergency hip surgery and was forced to cancel the US leg of her Born This Way Ball tour. She was said to be "devastated".

The aquarium has been installed to entertain her while she follows doctors' orders to have "strict downtime" following the operation to repair a tear in her right hip.
