The Digital Death Of Gaga

Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake and Usher are all ‘doing their bit’ for World Aids Day “Keep a Child Alive charity by…

Donating millions of dollars to those with HIV?

Going to an area where many suffer from the illness to lend a hand?

NO! They are doing the ultimate charitable gesture… Giving up Facebook.

Yep, that’s right. These kind-hearted souls have made their farewell videos and released them on social networking sites such as Twitter of them in coffins to illustrate the ‘death’ of their online presence.

Bob Geldof, how are you going to handle the competition?

Also, what will us mere mortals do without the presence of Gaga and Co. on Twitter?

It is such an incentive, the celebrities promised to sign back online as soon as the charity reach $1million. Well done Gaga, managed to take our minds off the actual cause for a few minutes so we could focus on you and your amazing Twitter site.

This is not the first incident of its kind which has got me ranting. Whilst I am obviously not against the giving of money to those in need, it’s blatantly obvious that many celebrities sing songs for charity to boost their own careers and egos. As William Blake would say, delving into their pockets with their “cold and userous hand.”

How about an anonymous donation, Gaga?

    Didn’t even know Gaga had twitter in the first place. So her absence from it is unlikely to make me donate to charity. Why doesn’t she donate some money to said charity and be done with it.
