The pop star explains in the doc that following the success of "Poker Face" she had 3 million dollars in the bank and that she successfully managed to spend all of it on the creation of the tour's concert stage. Known for being very hands-on and DIY, Mother Monster wanted to make sure that Monsters Ball satisfied her artistic desires at whatever the cost.
Arthur Fogel, the chairman for Live Nation, approached Gaga following her successful 2009 tour and offered her 40 million dollars as a means to support the singer's future artistic endeavors.
