Lady Gaga is a household name in just about every country in the world. She sings, writes, acts, performs and makes headlines every day. The woman is a human dynamo who loves the limelight and never goes anywhere without a huge entourage and a collection of outfits that are so bizarre no ordinary mortal would be seen dead in them. But if the burning question on your mind today is what mobile phone does Lady Gaga use, here are my musings on the subject.
Does Lady Gaga Even Need a Mobile Anyway?
It could be argued that Lady Gaga doesn’t really need a mobile. She is the type of star who probably expects everyone else to do menial tasks such as replying to mail from her ‘Little Monsters’ and answering miscellaneous calls. In fact she probably doesn’t have time to make calls and send text messages because she is too busy devising new and peculiar outfits for her promotional appearances. No doubt it took her ages to come up with the raw meat dress.
However, like everyone else on the planet, even though she is incredibly busy, Lady Gaga will almost certainly have a mobile phone so she can keep in touch with her agent, her management company, boyfriend, friends, family, fellow stars, and entourage. After all, it’s not like she can pop to the lobby of whatever hotel she’s staying in and ask to use their telephone.
iPhone or Blackberry – Decisions, Decisions
Underneath the raw meat and outrageous wigs and accessories, Lady Gaga is no different to you or I. She needs a mobile phone that works well no matter where in the world she happens to be. She also needs a mobile that looks great when she’s snapped by the paparazzi leaving an A list event. Imagine her embarrassment if she appeared on the front pages of scurrilous gossip magazine using an outdated Nokia flip phone or talking into a brick? She would be vilified in the press—and quite rightly so. Lady Gaga is a style icon and it is up to her to tell the rest of us how to dress.
There are zillions of different mobile phones on the market. You and I can pop down the local mobile phone shop and ask one of the sales assistants for advice if we don’t have a clue about which one to buy. We can also go online and read reviews if we are too busy to nip to the shops. Lady Gaga is too busy to do either of those things, so she probably has to take advice from the people around her when she’s in the market for a new mobile phone. So which phone is she most likely to own and why?
Top Reasons Why Lady Gaga Might Own an iPhone
- The cool factor – Lady Gaga is cool. Well, she is some of the time. It has to be said that occasionally her outfit choices are just plain weird, even for a celebrity. However, on the whole Lady Gaga is pretty cool and as such she needs a cool mobile phone. iPhones are the coolest of the cool, so it is pretty likely that Lady Gaga has at least one iPhone secreted somewhere on her person.
- Trillions of apps – iPhones have a fantastic selection of apps, which is why many people love them. Lady Gaga clearly uses apps because we know she loves to post selfies on Instagram. There are probably many other apps she uses, and although we can only guess at which ones are her favourites, I feel certain that she regularly checks out what’s happening in the world via the Daily Mail online.
Top Reasons Why Lady Gaga Might Own a Blackberry
- BBM – For all that she loves to live life in the public eye, Lady Gaga probably does value her privacy. For this reason, a Blackberry would be a smart choice of handset for anyone keen to keep their messages private. Blackberry’s instant messaging service, otherwise known as BBM, is known to be super secure, so not even the most tenacious of journalists would be able to hack into Lady Gaga’s messages if she used BBM to chat to her friends.
- Cost – Lady Gaga is probably worth billions by now, but like most rich people, it is not beyond the realms of possibility that she is careful with her money and she prefers not to spend more than she has to. Blackberry handsets are a lot cheaper than iPhones, whether you go for a SIM only deal or a two year fixed contract. So for this reason, Lady Gaga might prefer a budget Blackberry.
Lady Gaga probably doesn’t have time to think about mobile phone deals, but if she was looking for the best SIM Only contracts, she would do well to instruct her PA to go online and do a price comparison in order to secure the cheapest deals.
Every time a celebrity has a public meltdown, a gossip columnist gets her wings. This year, we’ve seen a whole lot of famous folks fall from grace, but in case you haven’t been keeping up, the bloggers over at Instant Checkmate have narrowed the mile-long list of celebrity fails down to the top five celeb train wrecks of this year. With the holidays right around the corner, you never know who will be the next celebrity to have a meltdown in the public eye!
1) Amanda Bynes
The downfall of child star, Amanda Bynes, was perhaps was the saddest celebrity train wreck of 2013. If you wanted to re-create the downward spiral of Amanda Bynes’ insanity, here’s what you’d have to do:
Step 1: Get a DUI
Step 2: Get into several hit and run accidents immediately following your DUI arrest
Step 3: Send a tweet to the president of the United States asking him to fire the cop that arrested you
Step 4: Get caught smoking weed in your car with a suspended license
Step 5: Act weird in public, prompting gossip blogs to write about how you’re totally losing it
Step 6: Get dropped by your management team
Step 7: Reinforce your own crazy narrative by posting more crazy s@#$ online
Step 8: Throw a bong out your window and get arrested some more
Step 9: Tweet a lot more crazy-sounding stuff
Step 10: Try and light stuff on fire, and get yourself involuntarily admitted into a psych ward
Back in September, Bynes was deemed unfit to stand trial and was diagnosed with schizophrenia. She is reportedly responding well to treatment, and could be released from rehab in time to come home for the holidays.
2) Aaron Hernandez
In what was perhaps the most epic downfall in professional sports this year, the former New England Patriots tight end, Aaron Hernandez, was arraigned on a staggering six charges (including first-degree murder) in August for the shooting death of Odin Lloyd. In court, First Assistant District Attorney Bill McCauley said Hernandez, “drove the victim to the remote spot, and then he orchestrated his execution.” The prosecutor went on to say, “He orchestrated the crime from the beginning, he took steps to conceal and destroy evidence, and he took steps to prevent the police from speaking to … an important witness,” according to CNN.
The Patriots immediately dropped Hernandez from the team and cancelled his contract. Not surprisingly, Hernandez wasn’t the only NFL player to get an arrest record this year!
For rappers who are way past their prime, like DMX, the only way to stay in the news is to keep getting arrested for ridiculous things. We all know he’s not making headlines off his next album, so we’ll have to settle for reading about his most recent brushes with the law.
Throughout his career, DMX has been arrested for just about everything under the sun including: animal cruelty, reckless driving, drug possession, identity falsification, rape, and even sodomy. Sounds like an awesome role model, right? Earlier this year, we bore witness to yet another one of DMX’s mugshots. Blog.instantcheckmate.com reported that the 42-year-old rapper was arrested for driving without a license. Seriously?!?! DMX, you’re rich and famous. Why don’t you go get your drivers license?
4) Chris Brown
Nothing like being known throughout the civilized world as a woman beater. After photos of a black and blue-faced Rihanna leaked all over the Internet, Brown immediately became the boy every dad wants his daughter to stay far, far away from. To make matters even worse, Brown reinforced his violent-tempered image when he was arrested and charged with felony assault just a few weeks ago.
Brown could face jail time for this most recent slip up since he’s still on probation for assaulting Rihanna. According to TMZ, Brown got into an argument with a man outside the W. Hotel in Washington D.C. The alleged victim supposedly photobombed Chris Brown who was posing for a picture with two girls. Chris said, “I’m not down with that gay s**t, I feel like boxing.” So he punched the guy in the face and broke his nose. . . Smooth.
5) Reese Witherspoon
Some of the most memorable celebrity meltdowns are the ones we never saw coming. Hollywood sweetheart, Reese Witherspoon, surprised everyone by getting all drunk and belligerent. She was officially charged with disorderly conduct and her angelic mugshot was immediately plastered all over the Internet. Even though Witherspoon was a hot mess on the night of her arrest, the circumstances surrounding her apprehension were actually kind of sweet.
Her husband, Jim Toth was pulled over on suspicion of drunk driving. Once she saw her other half in handcuffs, an inebriated Witherspoon had a, “Don’t touch my man,” moment. She flew out of the car and essentially got in the arresting officer’s face, saying, “Do you know who I am?” Sometimes famous people forget that they’re not above the law. The cop was NOT amused and threw both Witherspoon and her husband in jail.
Do you have a memorable 2013 celebrity meltdown? Let us know in the comments!
Tom Cruise is suing Bauer Publishing over a couple of cover stories that they ran on Life & Style magazine and In Touch Weekly claiming that he had abandoned his daughter Suri. He’s looking to get a $50 million payout over his defamation claims and they are really digging up the dirt on one another in the process.
Star magazine claims to have the inside scoop on what’s going down in the lawsuit of the century. Will Tom be able to prove defamation? Or will Tom be able to show the court that he hasn’t really abandoned his daughter Suri?
It will be interesting to see if they drag Katie Holmes in court for her testimony. You have to wonder if she feels that Tom abandoned their daughter. What do you think? Do you think Tom has a shot of winning this lawsuit or is he just trying to prove a point. And hey, it’s not like he needs the money or anything, right?
