London: Pop star Lady Gaga will perform on a special stage said to be worth $150,000 at the Lollapalooza music festival in Chicago this August.

The event`s founder Perry Farrell has commissioned a custom-built set costing $150,000 for the star and is convinced she is worthy every cent.

"We`re bringing in a special stage for her, investing like a hundred grand to house what she`s doing. That`s massive. Only Lady Gaga could step in and say `I`m a headliner`," quoted her as saying.

Lollapalooza is a three-day festival and is slated to take place from Aug 6-8 in Chicago.

Meanwhile, her representative has dismissed reports that she is on a dangerous baby food diet in a desperate attempt to stay slim.

Britain`s Heat magazine claimed the singer was only eating small portions of food intended for tots in a bid to keep her weight down.

"She`s substituting meals for jars of baby food. She thinks it`s working wonders for her, but she`s shockingly thin," quoted a source as saying.

But Gaga`s spokesperson has laughed off the report, saying it is "not true".
