  • Apple and Lady Gaga: What's Going On Here?


    Several months ago, rumors began swirling that Apple was interested in an entirely fresh batch of star power to help push the new slate of Apple products in 2010. So far, however, the "star power" of the devices themselves have been adequate to achieve juggernaut sales and deplete international inventories on a frequent basis.

    But all signs continue to point to one unlikely pairing in Cupertino - Steve Jobs and Lady Gaga. Following reports in May that Apple executives were interested in working with Gaga to promote the forthcoming iPhone 4, those reports quickly died down when, after a while, no commercials or other marketing angles turned up involving the tech giant and the unorthodox pop superstar.

    Well, at long last we now have photographic evidence to suggest that Gaga and Apple may still be up to something. Just hours ago, the above photo was taken at 1 Infinite Loop - Apples headquarters. Pictured with Gaga are various Apple employees who, obviously, know a thing or two about keeping a "poker face." The notoriously secretive company still isn't letting it be known why Lady Gaga was at Apple headquarters. But it's the latest evidence yet that Apple may soon roll out a new PR scheme involving the enormously popular singer.

      Apple ought to take the high-road and have absolutely nothing to do with Lady Gaga. In my belief, it would be really bad for busisness as many people do not like her. If Lady Gaga was to promote Apple, I highly doubt people would go out and spend $1000+ just because their favorite singer is promoting it.

      Just my two cents

      I'm not exactly sure that she would boost iPhone 4 sales, marylin Manson could do a better job. Heck, Charles Manson could do a better job

      When she does something that Bowie, Madonna, Wendy O Williams, and Dale Bozzio haven't already done to death maybe I'll pay attention.

      I would rather speak with the Apple employees about Apple products. Am I alone on this one?

      You underestimate the pop culture obsession of most Americans.

      And to Apple, please don't partner with her, she's incredibly annoying with her look at me I'm trying too hard to stand out antics.

      Keeping my personal opinions out of this one, Lady Gaga IS the BIGGEST star in the WORLD. Every country knows who she is and has even made native translations of her songs.

      Apple is a GLOBAL company now, they need a globally recognized superstar to help push their PR - which is, since Steve Jobs returned, at an all-time low.

      Smart move, if Apple does this. They know more about PR than we do. And even though Lady Gaga won't appeal to this forum's taste, we are but a small percentage (techie, jailbreakers, etc.) in their overall sales. Also, with Sony Ericsson and Google pushing a Playstation Phone by the end of the this year, Apple needs to stay one step ahead of the competition when trying to keep their teen/young adult market share.

      Just my two cents.

      Maybe they want to make an ipod out of those big glasses and need her to approve.
