Lady Gaga to Star in Ads for iPhone 4G?

Lady Gaga is reportedly in negotiations to star in the advertising and commercials for the iPhone 4G. Two pop culture lightning rods – the singer and the handheld device- would collide in a huge campaign if these rumors are true and this deal does indeed go down. While the iPhone is already a buzz gadget and it doesn't need Gaga to make an impression and help it to move units, it goes without saying that having the pop star hawk the product and associate with it might take things to the next level. Both the star and the phone have achieved way beyond "It" status, so this would be a brilliant business move. Gaga has made her own set of earbuds with an in-line mic via Dr. Dre's Beats brand of buds. With Gaga's "Telephone" single a hot topic because of the cameo by Beyonce in the faboo video for the song, one can't help but think this one was written in the stars and that it would be the promotional campaign to end all promotional campaigns if it does indeed become a reality.
Would you buy an iPhone 4G if Lady Gaga told you to? Or is the fact that it’s an AT&T only service enough to keep your distance?
