Just a warning here: I have no idea what FarmVille is. I’m on Facebook, but I’m really not too huge on it, and I don’t get the point of FarmVille. To the best of my knowledge, it combines the fun of back-breaking farmwork with the appeal of sitting and not actually doing anything. But apparently, Lady Gaga fans love it, so she’s releasing new songs from her upcoming album Born This Way on it, which finally combines the two things in this world I ignore the most.
On May 17th, Lady Gaga and Zynga will unveil GagaVille, a farm within FarmVille, which will showcase Lady Gaga’s themes from the album, such as crystals, unicorns and motorcycles. From May 17th to 19th, players can complete tasks to unlock and stream a new unreleased song per day. Lady Gaga said: “I want to celebrate and share Born This Way with my little monsters in a special way that’s never been done before… Zynga has created a magical place in FarmVille where my fans can come play and be the first to listen to the album.” SOURCE
GagaVille? Joy. I look forward to deleting the hundreds of thousands of invites I will inevitably get on Facebook for this. Thanks but no thanks; I already have enough distractions on the web. Seriously, it took me, like, half an hour just to write this post because I kept getting distracted by videos of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. I know it’s a show about ponies for five-year-old girls, but fucking shut the fuck up, I can’t hear Pinkie Pie!
