My father is my whole world; I’m such a daddy’s girl. I said, ‘I haven’t bought anything yet with any of the money that I’ve made from my new album… so let me buy you a new heart, dad.’ And he said, ‘OK, fine.'”

Gaga’s took two weeks off from her busy work schedule to take care of her recovering father, and she’s so happy her dad’s surgery went well she wants to get a tattoo to celebrate.

She says, “I’m gonna get a tattoo for him this week; I’m gonna get a heart that says ‘Dad’ in it.” ?The new skin art will be GaGa’s ninth tattoo. ?She adds, “I told him (father) I was gonna get it and he got all teary-eyed and he said, ‘Well, you’re running out of real estate, so don’t get it too big.'”
