Lady Gaga is going to eat some apples today! Many fans of Apple will mourn the passing and celebrate the life of co-founder and CEO Steve Jobs yesterday, in their own way. Gaga has decided her tribute will be dietary.
Much like Justin Bieber (who paid tribute to Jobs as well on Thursday), Lady Gaga can thank Steve Jobs and his inventions in part for her incredible success in the music industry. It was Jobs’ iPod, iTunes, iPhone, and other inventions that have revolutionized the way that music is listened to, purchased, shared, and consumed.
Speaking of consuming, it will be Lady Gaga who takes in a red delicious or three today, after this tweet:
From his own invention I open my browser to it’s homepage. Today it took my breath away. #ThankYouSteve. Going to eat Apples all day. (sic)
Aside from the eating apples comment, what really sticks out is Gaga’s eye for design. Perhaps Steve Jobs and Lady Gaga are on the complete opposite ends of the spectrum when it comes to design. However it is both of their attentions to detail that set them apart.
For Jobs it is clean lines, with a power in grace and simplicity. Mr. Jobs was known for being meticulous to the very last detail. For Gaga it may be brighter and more over the top on the outside, but every fine detail is a calculated and well thought-out idea.
Jobs may have had more of an influence on the ‘Born this Way’ singer than just millions song downloads…he clearly influenced her in design and vision. That’s what moved her this morning.
