London: Pop star Lady Gaga is reportedly pulling out all the stops to ensure that ‘embarrassing’ photos of her do not surface in public. She is contacting all her ex-boyfriends to buy the copyright of her old pictures.

The `Alejandro` hitmaker has been embarrassed time and again by photos of her younger days which have appeared in the media since her rise to fame, and feels they would threaten her eccentric public identity, reported a website.

"She hates things from her past being made public. She`s contacted exes, childhood friends and workmates to buy the copyright to any old pictures and footage to make sure that nothing else surfaces," a source said.

The 24-year-old singer, who is currently dating Luc Car, was, however, thrilled to discover she is going to be immortalised in wax at several Madame Tussauds museums.

Eight statues of Gaga will be unveiled in Las Vegas, Los Angeles, New York City, Berlin, London, Amsterdam, Shanghai and Hong Kong on December 9.

Each model will wear a different outlandish outfit from the singer`s wardrobe and took four months to complete. The eight figures are reported to have cost whopping USD 2.4 million to create.
