Update: Lady Gaga has been confirmed as the performer for Apple’s special event for employees.
It isn’t yet known who will be performing, but a Lady Gaga fan account on Twitter has suggested that the American singer-songwriter might be in line for the gig.
There are unconfirmed reports that Lady Gaga will be performing at Apple Parks’ formal opening event tomorrow, celebrating Steve Jobs.
Lady Gaga would be a slightly odd choice given Apple’s famous sensibilities. At a recent SAP event, she asked the audience if they were ready to engage in bedroom aerobics – though not in those exact words – and is not really noted as a family-friendly performer.
However, Gaga certainly has the credentials for such a high-profile event.
Gaga has won nine Grammy Awards, an Academy Award, a BAFTA Award, three Brit Awards, two Golden Globe Awards, thirteen MTV Video Music Awards, several Guinness World Records, and the inaugural Songwriters Hall of Fame’s Contemporary Icon Award. She received a National Arts Awards’ Young Artist Award, which honors individuals who have shown accomplishments and leadership early in their career, and she won the Jane Ortner Artist Award from the Grammy Museum in 2016 […]
Gaga is one of the best-selling music artists with estimated sales of 27 million albums and 146 million singles as of January 2016. Some of her singles are also among the best-selling worldwide. She has grossed more than $512.3 million in revenue from her concert tours and residencies, becoming the fifth woman to pass the half-billion total as reported to Billboard Boxscore. Gaga has consecutively appeared on Billboard magazine’s Artists of the Year (scoring the definitive title in 2010).
Named Woman of the Year in 2015, she is the 11th top digital singles artist in the US with a total of 61 million equivalent units certified according to Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
