Lady Gaga to record Bond Movie Theme

My reaction:

Did they not learn their lesson from the abomination that was the Die Another Day theme song.

If this news came out tomorrow, I would have chalked it up as an April Fools Day joke.

From the Sun: "Bond bosses are all huge Gaga fans. 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."

Yeah, because Telephone is going to be discussed in the same breath as "Yesterday" and "Like A Rolling Stone". I know she can write songs as her work as a brunette student proves, but that is not who they are considering for that job. They are hiring someone who is flying their freak flag without bringing the goods. I mean, Bowie played a freak too, but he made great music that spanned the generations.

And when they say it is perfect on every level, they are forgetting a word.

Is there still a chance this could be an April's Fool joke?? Say "No" to Gaga!
