electronics. Probably the coolest of the lot is the PIC 1000, the
future-retro…

CES 2010: Let The Show Floor Streaming Begin … Lady Gaga,

Lady Gaga named Polaroid creative director, puts that liberal arts education to good use … Lady Gaga, the newest creative director of Polaroid Imaging Products (insert your
own Paparazzi joke here). Apparently the chanteuse will be working

Das Lady Gaga-Prinzip für Markenhielt ich Lady Gaga für eine singende Perücke, die vor allem dazu dient, die Knallpresse
und Boulevardformate von “Brisant” bis “Explosiv” zu füllen. Dann aber
hörte ich erstmals Bad Romance und stellte erstens fest, dass ich –
musikalisch gesehen – alt werde, das Produkt, die Musik also, gar nicht
mal schlecht produziert ist und das künstleri…

Nirvana + Lady GaGa = Epic Mashup [VIDEO] … Lady GaGa has been a little… shall we say, overplayed this year (being Last.fm’s official Fame Monster as well as one of Twitter’s most influential
topics of 2009
). Still, this vid is worth a serious look. It almost

Und hier seht Ihr die Lady bevor sie Gaga wurde:

Ist dies nun die Madonna des neuen Jahrtausends? Ist sie die ideale Verkörperung einer optimal-obsessiven lebenslangen Personal Life Cycle Vermarktung? Oder nur ein kurzer Hype?

Wenn man ihre Wandlungsfähigkeit sieht, verbunden mit ihrem Marketing-Talent, stellt sie zumindest schon Paris Hilton in den Schatten. Sie scheint zudem weniger angreifbar, weil sie einfach weniger Angriffsfläche bietet. Und scheint dafür mehr Projektionsfläche zu bieten. Vor allem aber das Potential, sich chamäleon-artig weiterzuentwickeln, neu zu erfinden.

Stehen wir mit dem einen Fuße schon im Age of Gaga? Marken und Unternehmen sollten spätestens jetzt beginnen, darüber nachzudenken.
