London: Pop superstar Lady Gaga still lives in a studio apartment in New York because she refuses to pay out for a lavish home.

The "Poker Face" hit maker earned around $ 64 million in the past year, according to estimates, but she has chosen not to splurge on a spacious new house, because she would rather spend the money on her stage sets and live performances, reports

"I spend my money on my props and my creations. I`m an inventor. The true luxury of my success is that I can do it all on my own terms now, even though the roller-coaster ride is still going," she said.
