Yasss virtual Gaga!
According to leaks reported by Kotaku, Lady Gaga might be performing a virtual concert on the popular online video game Fortnite sometime soon. This speculation started when a Twitter account known as @FNLeaksAndInfo shared an audio clip of a rumored emote creating a rendition of Gaga's 2008 smash hit “Poker Face.”
In a previous press release by Fortnite developer Epic Games, the studio announced that its “Rainbow Royale 2022” event will feature participation from artists like Gaga, Janelle Monáe, and Kim Petras. However, that just meant that their songs would be playing over the game during the event.
Alas, Gaga fans and Fortnite players are now starting to believe that the “Stupid Love” singer will be way more involved in the event, possibly even holding a whole virtual concert inside the game.
Other high-profile musicians who have performed virtual concerts on Fortnite in the past include Ariana Grande, Lil Nas X, Travis Scott, and KoRn. At this moment, a virtual concert from Marshmello is also being speculated by Fortnite players.
With that said, it should be noted that this is all speculation for the time being. Gaga is still on the road with The Chromatica Ball, but that tour is close to coming to an end. Who knows – maybe the “Rain On Me” singer will finish off the tour with a special virtual appearance on Fortnite.
One thing is certain, though: Little Monsters will have their virtual paws up on Fortnite if these rumors turn out to be true.
