(Newser) – How could Lady Gaga possibly get even more outlandish? Easy: Bring corpses on stage. Gaga plans to team up with scientist Gunther von Hagens, the doctor who famously preserves dead bodies for the Body Worlds exhibition, for next month’s Las Vegas stop on her Monster Ball tour. “Gaga sees a kindred spirit” in him, and Vegas is “the obvious fit” for his work, a source tells the Sun.

“It would be good to top this tour—which is already out there—with something nobody has done before, using dead bodies as part of a gig,” the source continues. Von Hagens is also known for staging the first public autopsy in 170 years—on TV, no less—and selling body parts through a mail-order system.
