Lady Gaga Gold Wheelchair

It seems that Lady Gaga is dealing with her injury in style.

Gaga, 26, currently recovering from the hip surgery that put an end to her tour, is now rolling in a custom, 24-karat gold plated wheelchair.

ccording to the New York Post, Gaga commissioned Ken Borochov of Mordekai to design her new ride, which quotes Borochov as saying: "I certainly wasn't expecting that phone call and have never done a wheelchair but am always up for a challenge and was thrilled to create what I affectionately dubbed the Chariot, a chair fit only for a queen."

It has to be noted that the chair, featuring a black leather seat, can fully recline.

Gaga's friend Terry Richardson shot the pictures in her new throne.

What do you think of Lady Gaga's new throne?

Obama Flag On Sale !

The Obama Campaign recently released their ideal version of the US flag.

You can buy your O-flag at the Obama Campaign website for $35.

If the image looks familiar it could be because the red stripes resemble the bloody Benghazi hand prints. The bloodstained walls at the US consulate revealed that the US officials were dragged to their death by terrorists.

The bloodstains at the main gate considered to be from one of the American staff members of the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

The question is: Do you think that the Obama Campaign has desecrated the American flag or that they’re pushing a product that reminds Americans of the slaughter in Benghazi?

It is common knowledge that the US flag code claims that the American flag cannot be altered. Much to our surprise Obama has crossed the line this time and at least he owes an apology to American people...What do you think?

Demi Lovato Treatment Center

Demi Lovato, who was on the road with the Jonas Brothers in 2010, made the decision to cancel all her tour appearances. You may wonder why...

Actually, Demi Lovato has checked into a treatment center  according to Demi's rep in order to deal with issues that have evidently been plaguing her for awhile.

"She was in Peru and just couldn't continue," a source told E! News.

"Demi Lovato left her tour early this weekend in order to seek medical treatment for emotional and physical issues she has dealt with for some time," a rep for Lovato quoted as saying.

"Demi has decided to take personal responsibility for her actions and seek help. She is doing just that. She regrets not being able to finish her tour, but is looking forward to getting back to work in the near future."

In case you are wondering which was Demi Lovato's treatment center, the answer is that Demi had received treatment at Timberline Knolls for several months to deal with issues ranging from cutting to eating disorders.

It has to be mentioned that Demi has returned to the treatment center in order to encourage young women to face their problems and deal with them head on. Demi has even tweeted about her return visit to treatment over the weekend.

"Wow what an inspiring day ... Many tears were shed and many memories were brought back at Timberline Knolls today," Demi wrote on her twitter page, a year after she first entered the facility. "Today I went back to the treatment center I went to last year to speak to the beautiful women fighting their inner demons. was so honored."

Lovato has been very honest and allowed people to get to know  her personal journey over the past 12 months and she revealed that speaking at the center was a culmination of that experience.

"To be able to share my story and let them know that it gets easier ... Life is beautiful ... you are worthy of it. Please say a prayer for all of those struggling with eating disorders, self-harm, mood disorders, and substance abuse," Demi claimed.

How inspiring!

Which is the most powerful product on Facebook, Twitter and You Tube???

ATLANTA -- For years, Coca-Cola has told us that so many parts of life "go better" with the iconic soft drink. You can now add social media to the list as well.

Coca-Cola has quietly become one of the most popular brands on Facebook, along with such pop-culture icons as Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Eminem.
Coke, with its 35 million fans, is the 16th-most-popular Facebook page. Disney is No. 23.  

Advertising Age this week named Coke its "Marketer of the Year," citing it as an example of how small and midsize brands also "can use creative stunts and strategic partnerships to get a lot done on a smaller budget."
On Facebook, Coca-Cola has received more than 35 million "likes," and Wendy Clark, Coke's senior vice president of integrated marketing who oversees the social-media effort, says having all those fans respond to Coke is meaningful.
"Fans are twice as likely to consume and 10 times more likely to purchase than non-fans," she says, in an interview at Coke headquarters here.
The emphasis on social media has clearly paid off, even though it's only part of Coke's overall $2.9 billion advertising strategy for TV, radio, Internet, print advertising and billboards.
Coke, the world's largest beverage company with some 500 different drinks -- soft drinks, teas, coffees, juices and water -- says its overall beverage volume is up 6(PERCENT) worldwide year to date; 3(PERCENT) for Coke alone. About 1.7 billion drinks of Coke are served daily in cans and bottles and from vending machines.

USA TODAY visited Coke here in an off-campus semi-secret (there's no Coke branding on the outside) warehouse facility less than a mile from Coke headquarters. Inside, there are no iconic red Coke logos. The one nod to its legacy: a new Coke vending machine that offers 125 different flavor combinations of Coke, Sprite, Fanta and other company products.

The interview was in a large round conference room, with Coke executives projecting Facebook and Twitter pages during the conversation. Clark gives credit to the Facebook Coke page to
two fans, Dusty Sorg and Michael Jedrzejewski, an actor and writer from Los Angeles, who started the Coca-Cola fan page on Facebook. Once the page surpassed 1 million fans, Facebook informed Coke that the page violated its rules and needed to be run by Coke, not fans.

Coke decided that instead of taking it down, it would embrace the community. The two founders are clearly credited and work for Coke now on a freelance basis.
Whether members enthuse about their love of Coke and its products or blast the company, the posts stay up, Clark says. "You can't curate that conversation," she says. "The community will curate it." (Porn and pitches for "free iPads" and the like do come down.)
Letting fans be fans on Facebook, instead of turning the page into a corporate mouthpiece, has paid off, says Jedrzejewski. "People are savvy enough to know when a Facebook page is contrived and manufactured."
The message for marketers: "Don't squander an opportunity with people who are passionate about their brand," says Janice Smithers, a senior media strategist at Covario, a San Diego firm that helps companies with their search marketing campaigns. She's studied brands on Facebook and found that many don't communicate with their fans, don't build apps or have contests for them, as Coke does.
Jeremiah Owyang, an analyst at the Altimeter Group, says there are pluses and minuses to having such a massive Facebook following.

The plus is the huge audience to market to, but for smaller companies, having tens of millions following you on Facebook "could be a 24/7 monster that needs to be fully staffed."
Coke is active on other social networks as well, including YouTube, where its videos have been viewed 33.5 million times, and Twitter, where it has 400,000 followers.
The Twitterverse has had a profound impact on how Coke deals with consumer feedback.
Coke monitors the questions posted on Twitter and answers all of them, Clark says. "What Twitter has done is changed our customer service," she says. Clark has shifted staff, putting more folks on the Twitter response team and fewer on the phone.
One of the classic marketing missteps of all time was the introduction of New Coke in the 1980s, causing a consumer backlash that forced Coke to pull the new formulation off the market. Clark says Coke learned an important social-media lesson: Your customers have control.
"It took 63 days for the company to put Classic Coke back. ... Think about the fact that the government of Egypt was toppled in five days. Look at the difference social media has made in the world."

Carolyn Everson, Facebook's vice president of global marketing, says her goal with Coke is to take the massive Facebook community and "engage" it to "do something good." Coke just introduced a special white Coke can featuring images of polar bears and is touting it on Facebook. Proceeds from sales help protect the Arctic habitat.

"That shows the power of Facebook and Coke to make a difference in the world," says Everson.
