UPDATE-Lady Gaga and her ‘Telephone’ collaborator Beyonce Knowles have apparently developed a strong friendship. So much so that Lady Gaga is certain Beyonce will bail her out if thrown in jail in Manila, Philippines. Gaga was tweeting her heart away as she prepped for her second sold out show in the country,
“Sold out night 2 in the Philippines. I love it here!”
There was one minor problem, local Christian groups are protesting the shows and calling for an outright ban of the mother monster’s music. No worries, Bey’s got Gaga’s back.
“And don’t worry, if I get thrown in jail in Manila, Beyonce will just bail me out,” tweeted Lady Gaga.
In other monster news, Gaga is set to launch her own “Little Monsters” network which will be based around the substantial fan base she has amassed in relatively a short time.
The fan-geared site will allow the little monsters to pin what is appealing to them akin Pinterest and to rate what is noteworthy a la Reddit.
The brains behind this social networking site is all of “Born This Way” singer’s fans can congregate in one forum in which praise and homage can be given while photos and videos are shared.
The Backplane-launched site is invite-only for fans as of now and is in testing mode to see if fans will take to the idea, according to MTV news.
“Backplane is about bringing together communities and Gaga’s community just so happens to be the community we’re using to learn about proper functionality,” CEO Matt Michelsen said. “We think we can really change the world.”
If testing proves that Gaga’s fans are interested in the (somewhat) new concept, then spin off sites will be churned out throughout the year.
There is hope to leverage the “Poker’s Face” singer’s overwhelming online following to draw users to the new sites. To date, in addition to her massive Twitter base, Gaga has 330,000 followers on Google+, more than 50 million Facebook fans and more than one billion Youtube views.
