Lady Gaga launches headphones
She's known for her over the top stage performances and outrageous homemade costumes, but what Lady Gaga wants to be known for now is her line of headphones.
Heartbeats by Lady Gaga is Miss Lady G's own line of headphones. That's right -- you can dance around to her music while wearing her headphones. They're part of the Dr Dre collection from Monster.
Lady Gaga says, "In the deepest hour of the night, I confess to myself three things; I would die if I was forbidden to write, forbidden to love, or forbidden to fashion... Heartbeats embody the trinity of my human being, with one additional vow: that sound matters."
Here's the deal: the Lady Gaga headphones cost $100 for a pair and apparently very durable. They come in three styles: Metal with a red jewel-shaped earpiece, metal with a chrome jewel-shaped earpiece and black-on-black body and jewel-shaped earpiece.
In other Lady Gaga news, she's nominated for Artist of the Year, Pop/Rock Favorite Female Artist, and Pop/Rock Favorite Album at this year's American Music Awards. What you may not know is that the artist previously known as Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta was signed by Def Jam Records and then dropped. The New Yorker started performing in the Lower East Side and started working with Interscope Records as a songwriter for a variety of artists including Akon. After he heard her sing, he convinced the chairman of Interscope Records to ink a deal with her.
Lady Gaga's debut album, The Fame has reached critical and commercial success. It catapulted to number one in four countries and topped the Billboard Top Electronic Albums chart here in America. Her first two singles, Just Dance and Poker Face became international number one hits. In fact, Just Dance was nominated for Best Dance Recording at the Grammy Awards. This year she opened for New Kids on the Block and the Pussycat Dolls only to snag the very first concert of her own, The Fame Ball Tour.
