Lady Gaga poses on the red carpet at the CFDA Fashion awards at the Lincoln Center in New York on Monday.
Wherever Lady Gaga goes, her fans — whom she calls “little monsters” — follow and so do TV ratings.
The American pop star is scheduled to visit Taiwan next month to promote her latest album and that has set local television stations into a frenzy to try to get her to appear on their shows.
Lady Gaga will visit after performing at the MTV Video Music Aid Japan event on June 25, a representative from Universal Music Taiwan said. So far, the singer’s record label has received dozens of invitations from television stations.
“It’s pretty much all the variety shows you can think of,” including Chang Fei (張菲), one of Taiwan’s premier TV hosts, the spokesperson said.
For Lady Gaga fans, the pop star’s arrival promises to be a feast for their senses, since she usually pushes the boundaries with what she wears and says during public appearances.
One Facebook fan posted a message on the Lady Gaga Taiwan Official Forum that read: “Hope gaga will be on TV all day that week.”
Local corporations have also expressed interest in sponsoring the singer’s trip or inviting her to endorse their products. but the dates and other details of her first visit have not been set, Universal Music said.
