My mother would no doubt call them a stupid pointless piece of tat.
But who the hell cares? I was simultaneously amused and excited when I heard that Lady Gaga was launching her own range of....headphones (yes, headphones. She could have sold leotards by the bucketload, or amazing dragalicious make-up) but when I saw her wearing them in her 'Bad Romance' video I flipped a little bit.
Look at them. Aren't they pretty and cute? And for some reason they remind me a bit of the mind control earpieces used by the Cybermen in Doctor Who. Which I won't dwell on too much. But if I could have anyone control my mind, I guess Gaga wouldn't be too bad.
