Lady Gaga is set to launch a new line of headphones, and proceeds will help in the fight against AIDS in Africa.
On Thursday, January 7, she joined Dr. Dre at the 2010 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Lady Gaga is working with Product RED, and the idea was thought of after a conversation she had with Bono at the Vevo launch party back in December.
She said, “All the money that RED will make off these headphones will go directly to helping people who are affected by the AIDS epidemic in Africa.”
According to RED, at least $5 from every pair of headphones (designed by Dr. Dre) purchased is contributed to their Global Fund. His headphones will be available for sale in February, and more announcements will be made about Lady Gaga’s soon.
When her headphones are available, people who buy them will also receive a special version of Lady Gaga’s hit song, “Poker Face.”
