How exciting is this? Lady Gaga has just signed on as Creative Director for a line of Polaroid specialty products from the instant camera maker. The multi-year deal will see Lady Gaga and Polaroid co-branded products hit shelves later this year, catering to a new generation of consumers. The financially-troubled company was bought out in May 2009 by Boston’s Gordon Brothers Brands and Toronto’s Hilco Consumer Capital in U.S. Bankruptcy Court. In Lady Gaga's own words, "finally I have a real job." She will be appearing in the Polaroid booth at tomorrow's annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
As an aside, my very first camera ever was a Polaroid Sun 600 which I got for Christmas when I was 10. I loved that camera to death and stupidly got rid of it a couple years ago after hearing that Polaroids would be discontinued. Not that you have to pull my leg to buy a Lady Gaga Polaroid Camera though, because that sounds right up my alley!
