An exclusive Google interview with Lady Gaga!
“[email protected]” series bringing in super duper pop star Lady Gaga in to talk to super duper tech star Marissa Mayer. What comes of this is a pretty awesome 73 minute piece of content, with successful famous nerdy chick Marissa Mayer asking successful famous nerdy chick Lady Gaga user questions culled from the week-old Google Moderator page on Gaga’s YouTube channel.
Mayer makes a big point, in true Google fashion, of emphasizing that Gaga is one of the most searched people in the world, a “search star” at 443 million hits for the term “Lady Gaga” on Google, 630 million views on Gaga’s “Bad Romance” YouTube video, 20 million singles downloaded on iTunes, 54K questions asked on Google Moderator and 250K votes on her YouTube Moderator questions in just 3 1/2 days.
Over the course of the interview we learn that Gaga was involved in a startup with her dad, is a fan of the “David at the Dentist” YouTube video, has a friend named Mary Hailey who works at Google, and that Googler Andrew Shulty wrote Gaga up for drinking in her room at NYU when he was an RA. But possibly the most bloggable (and poignant) pullquote of the whole thing:
“When I was in high school all my girlfriends wanted to get jobs here, and I wanted to be what they were searching for.”
