has been issued a firey challenge from relatively unknown Los Angeles singer/songwriter Alisa Apps
, who accuses Lady Gaga of being a "plastic doll generated by the music money marketing machine" and challenges her to a sing-off on national TV for... ONE MILLION DOLLARS. The field of battle? Madison Square Garden or London's O2 Arena.
Lady Gaga, who has nothing to gain and everything to lose, has not responded to the challenge yet, but somehow I doubt she's shaking in her boots. Whatever the eventual outcome, Apps, who has yet to release an album, has gotten massive amounts of attention since issuing the challenge, including 1.2 million views on a youtube clip of her performing her song "How Do I Make Right?" and a CNN interview. A publicity stunt, dare I say, worthy of Gaga herself. Just sayin'. -peter menniti
