No, this not a late April Fools’ joke. It seems that Lady Gaga’s name has been added to the list of contenders to sing the theme song to Bond 23. According to Digital Spy, the bosses are huge fans of her music and think that she would be perfect for the job:
“Bond bosses are all huge GaGa fans,” a source told the newspaper. “Her sound and sense of drama make her the top choice.”
“GaGa has the look as well as the voice to tackle a thundering ballad. She’s a great songwriter too. This is perfect on every level.”
I would have to agree that she would be a great choice. I’m not just saying that as a fan of her music, but also because she’s very popular among the music industry these days. Sadly, with MGM in financial trouble, it will be a while before anything is made official.
However, I recommend you take this with a grain of salt as Digital Spy cites The Sun, a site that is known for creating wild rumors.
