  • 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 - Apple’s 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.

      Probably the same as the last 3 years, but updated to the technology of 2 years ago.

      Oh great I can't wait till this lame azz woman is gone. Fact - more than half of the uk have less than £500 in their savings. Some due to circumstance most due to idiots try to buy things they can't afford, these same idiots will buy this gaga/apple crap.

      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.
      BAM!!!

      That just happened.

      This is exactly it. Many people are not Lady Gaga fans either but she still has millions upon millions of fans worldwide also.

      Everyone likes something different but it is undeniable that these stars have a massive following.

      There are much better choices out there than Lady Gaga to market your products that are much bigger in fame and much more world renown. Lady Gaga is a laughing stock and a sad sad sad sad sad choice on apples part for a marketing campaign. If we're gonna have Lady gaga marketing the iPhone, why not throw Justin Beiber into the mix, both of their fan base's are in the same age brackets.

      Am I the only one who is thinking that the wholesome image that Apple is trying to paint wouldn't quite fit with Lady Gaga? I mean, I've heard quite a bit of controversial rumors about her as it is, does Apple really want to dabble in that?

      This isn't about Lady GaGa selling iDevices, it's about brand recognition. Lady GaGa has millions of fans -- it's just another way for Apple to get their name known among the masses. The iPhone sells itself, really, the trick is to simply keep their name in the minds of consumers.
