Well-known pop star Lady Gaga is the latest superstar being courted by the Asian Poker Tour. Last week, the Asian Poker Tour invited fourteen-time Olympic Gold Medal winning swimmer Michael Phelps to the Asian Poker Tour Macau Festival, running from August 12th, 2009 until August 23rd, 2009 at the Galaxy StarWorld Hotel and Casino. Now the tour is after the singing diva, whose hits include "Poker Face" and who held a concert at the Venetian Macau on August 15, 2009.
The open letter from the Asian Poker Tour to Lady Gaga or Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta in real life, said that Lady Gaga's presence will cause a tremendous reaction at the Asian Poker Tour Macau Festival. The letter further states that the APT Macau has a special Celebrity event featuring Chinese and Hong Kong language starts on August 18th, 2009 and Lady Gaga would be more than welcome to participate in the event.
Lady Gaga's "Poker Face" topped the hit charts in late-March and early April this year selling millions of copies all over the world. APT officials said that they are willing to pick up Lady Gaga's tab during her duration of stay in Macau. The letter also congratulated the singer on her 9 MTV Video Awards and stated that APT Macau would be honored if Lady Gaga would accept their invitation.
