GaGa And Kanye Bringing Back Chatrooms…But This Time With Music!

kanye and gaga investing in music startup

Remember the good ole days of AOL chatrooms? Well, they're SORT OF coming back!

Lady GaGa and Kanye West have reportedly invested in Turntable.fm, which consists of chatrooms where people take turns DJing songs for the other peeps in the room via MediaNet or MP3 uploads.

So far, 300,000 people have access to the site, but it's currently by invite-only, so you'll need a friend who's got the hook up to join.

Once you DO get on the site, you can create and/or join rooms where you'll start playing music for chat buddies, who will rate your songs as "awesome" or "lame."

Sounds like fun! And at the very least, it'll spur interesting conversation in chat rooms, which will DEF be a step up from classic AOL chatroom conversations which went something like "hey. wats up? a/s/l/pic? anybody here from Texas? wanna cyber?" LOLz.

Will U join Turntable.fm? Are GaGa and Kanye making a wise decision by investing in it?

    prolly a bad investment .. xd

    Yeah…they failed last time when they were gonna collaborate together. Flop part 2 coming there way. Also there's already Last.fm so it's stupid to try and copy that site.



  7. 7

    Just another internet fad that will quickly wear off. People have enough social networking sites that connect them with people they actually know.. or people whos pictures they can actually view.. why would you want to sit online and chat with strangers all day?



  8. 8

    Two losers without talent! They both will fail miserably.



  9. 9

    Maybe they get Justin Timberlake to do some consulting for them.

    yep she wants everyone to feel included and like they belong that is why it is by invite only.

    LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) - Lady Gaga has been accused of borrowing perhaps a bit too much from Madonna and Bette Midler. But did she outright plagiarize her recent single "Judas"?

    The "Poker Face" singer is being sued by Chicago-based musician Rebecca Francescatti, who claims that Gaga lifted "substantial original portions" of her song "Juda."

    In a lawsuit filed Wednesday in the Northern District of Illinois, Francescatti claims that she recorded a version of her song during a 2005 session that was engineered by Brian Gaynor, a member of DJ White Shadow, which worked with Gaga on her album "Born This Way," which contains "Judas."

    Claiming that there's "a substantial similarity between the two songs," Francescatti is seeking unspecified damages, plus court costs and attorney's fees.

    Gaynor, as well as Gaga's label, Interscope Records, and its parent company, Universal Music Group, are also named in the suit, along with DJ White Shadow.

    Interscope had no comment for TheWrap. A representative for Lady Gaga did not immediately respond to TheWrap's request for comment.

    i never bought into anything caca-related because it`s bound to be crap.

    Re: china – Yep, Gag-me really is a huge gigantic pile of shit.



  20. 20

    lame idea



  21. 21

    That sounds like an awesome idea. People on yahoo used to play music but not as innovative as this. Gonna have to check it out.

    Re: oxceranoid – You're so fuckin' brainwashed you'd think stick-on hemorrhoids by Gag-me would be a good idea. Come to think of it, Gag-me's face would look beautiful with stick-on hemorrhoids all over her cheeks and forehead!! Lmfao!!

    Great idea, great intentions, but it's going to fail simply because of the fact that it's an invite-only. sure you'll get in if your friends are kind enough to invite you in but what happens if either your friends decide not to send you an invite, or you just don't know anyone who currently uses the service? You're screwed. From what I understand based on what I've read in a google post about this chat room, it started as an invite-only service. And they expect to make money off of it? They expect it to become popular? Um sorry not gonna happen. Make it public so that anyone can join. I HATE services where you needed to be invited in to be a part of it because it sends a message that unless you were asked to come in, you're basically a loser and an outcast and you don't belong with us. So no, it's not gonna do well. Furthermore, if it's a paid service and they're asking for money, I assume it's free, but if it's not, I strongly recommend that everybody not pay because it's a waste of money.

    Lady Gaga is so obnoxious that she makes Kanye look reasonable.

    Re: POPSCIDICTATOR – Maybe if you listened to the song Juda you'd not have wasted time posting that,as they sound nothing alike.
