Newcomer Alisa Apps lays down challenge

Lady Gaga has been challenged to a singing contest by US newcomer Alisa Apps.

Apps, who is yet to release an album but has proved a hit online (scroll down and watch her in action below), questioned the singer’s abilities in the US media, laying down a sing-off which would see the winner would take home a $1 million (£630,000) prize.

She said that such a contest could take place at Madison Square Garden in New York or London‘s O2 Arena, reports

“I feel sorry for Lady Gaga, she’s just a plastic doll generated by the music money marketing machine,” she said in a statement sent out by her marketing/publicity team. “This contest gives people a chance to choose which they prefer – plastic or real.”

Apps didn’t explain where the prize money would come from. Lady Gaga has yet to respond.
