London: Pop star Lady Gaga spent a night in her tour bus in a supermarket car park instead of joining her entourage at a plush hotel.

The ``Paparazzi`` hitmaker was booked to stay in a London hotel with her team, but after her staff checked in, she amazed onlookers by returning to her tour bus with her bodyguard, where they drove to a nearby Tesco supermarket and spent the night in the vehicle, reported Mirror online.

"It was really bizarre. All Gaga`s luggage - about 20 laminated boxes and suitcases - were dropped off at the Dorchester and her crew at about 3am.

And 15 minutes later, the driver, one of her entourage and Gaga`s security guy got back on the bus and drove off, hitting the West Cromwell Road Tesco at about 3.30am," said a source. "They went down a ramp to park and Gaga got them to turn off the ignition and bedded down for the night," the source added.

The 24-year-old singer was later treated to breakfast in her bus, before heading off to start work for the day. "Seven hours later at 10.30am, a Mercedes SLK arrived, as well as a silver people carrier bringing a bag of shopping.

Her guard slipped her out of the bus and into the Mercedes. Both the cars drove off, with Gaga heading to a recording studio," the source said.
