Lady Gaga, an artist known for her oversized fashion and theatrical performances, caused a media sensation in Japan. There to promote his new album, Pop art, the singer had the chance to come face to face with four life-size silicone dolls … sculpted in her image.
Manufactured by Orient Industry, based in Tokyo, a company specializing in “love dolls”, the GAGADOLL were made using exact anatomical measurements and realistic silicone skin. When users kiss the dolls and press their ears against the dolls chest, they hear traces of Pop art, thanks to the bone conductive audio technology integrated into the bodies.
