Lady Gaga Born This Way Playbutton World’s Most Useless MP3 Player

Are you tired of Lady Gaga yet? Too bad, because she’s set on invading every aspect of our culture until she can claim to have given birth to us all in some weird science fiction odyssey that I’m sure she plans to release as a movie sometime in 2013.

This holiday season she’s already subjected us to her Thanksgiving special, and Barneys New York is helping her infect the masses with their 12 days of Gaga in partnership with Gaga’s Workshop.

Every day the store offers up yet another Gaga-related item to fill the empty space in your soul left by listening to her music. Today is day 11 and the special treat is a button (the kind you pin on) that is also an MP3 player. The Playbutton contains all 22 tracks from a special edition of the Born This Way album and… that’s it.

For $50 you get a heavy button that can play one album and that you can’t add anything to — it’s just 1.75 inches in diameter, so there’s no room for a microUSB slot. Also, player controls are on the back, so you can look forward to a really awkward and frustrating time trying to skip or repeat songs.


This device is Lady Gaga to a T.

If you’re really eager to grab another piece of Gaga paraphernalia, the Playbutton is available right now. No returns!
