Lady Gaga has fallen victim to a phishing scandal. Her Twitter and Facebook page has been filled with messages saying, “Lady Gaga’s new iPad comes out in 3 days! So for the next 72 hours we will be hosting a massive giveaway to all the Mother Monster fans. Sign up and receive your special Lady Gaga edition iPad in time for the Holidays! For contest rules and registration visit the link below.” No one knows who hacked her, but she is just glad that she has her account back in time for Tokyo. She removed the bogus tweet and wrote, “Phew. The hacking is over! And just in time, I’m on my way to Japan! So excited to spend Xmastime with my TokyoMonsters!”
Lady Gaga has over 17 million fans. Even though she is the top-earning woman in music, she can’t buy 17 million ipad2s.
We knew something was up when we saw that come up on our Twitter feed. I thought she could have at least put the hashtag #ad on it….but hackers don’t think, do they?
Let’s hope that this one doesn’t return. Perhaps she should change her passwords?
