Lady Gaga may not be British, but the singer is allegedly thisclose to becoming the face of a major brand of tea. The Sun reported that the pop star, who is a notorious tea drinker, has been offered endorsement deals by two major tea companies. Word is that she will sign with Twinings, where the brand will put her face on tea boxes to help market the beverage to a generation of young, hip Americans. If this deal does go down, it would be one helluva a Tea Party at Gaga shows.
A source told the tabloid: "Her management have received a load of offers from major tea companies but Twinings are the front-runners. They want to launch a new tea with her face on it and discussions are taking place at the top level." Marketing ideas include a blend of tea called "The Taste of Gaga" and tasting sessions in which the singer herself would participate. The insider added: "The tasters are coming up with a tea with an oriental flavor. They want to market tea to a new, younger generation - particularly in America - and Gaga is making drinking tea cool again." Leave it to Gaga to revolutionize tea.
Would you drink tea if Gaga endorsed it? Or are you a straight up coffee connoisseur?
