On Tuesday, December 1, the Twitter account of Pop Crave announced, “Lady Gaga teams up with @Oreo for new initiative, ‘Sing It With Oreo,’ launching Dec. 15th: ‘Get ready to spread some kindness with Lady Gaga’.” Following that, the Twitter account called Gaga Now, a fan account updating news about the pop star, announced, “Oreo and @ladygaga will team up for a new initiative: ‘Sing it with Oreo’. Available from Dec. 15th.”

The account added in another tweet, “With the ‘Sing It With Oreo’ contest, you can win special prizes and ‘A Unique Experience with @ladygaga’. To participate, fans will have to scan a QR code printed on the new pink Oreo boxes, and record a ‘Kind Message’ that will be turned into a musical using the @Oreo website.”



 



 



 

While no announcements were made by Oreo on its website at the time of writing, people on Twitter had a very specific observation. One Twitter user wrote, “Lmao someone find all the tweets from G*ga fans trying to drag Xtina for her Oreo campaign. Guess she really is always ahead of her time.” Another Twitter user said, “gaga fans deleting their xtina oreo drags.” Another Twitter user said, “omg her xtina oreo era is upon us.”



 



 



 

These Twitter users, and more, were referring to pop star Christina Aguilera promoting Oreo cookies in April 2017. The ad campaign saw Aguilera, former basketball star Shaquille O’Neal, and Brazilian professional footballer Neymar Jr. appear in separate spots, where they each dipped an Oreo in a “radical situation”. 

In one of the TV spots, the singer rode a bicycle across a circus tightrope, with a cookie in her hand. Once she reached the middle of the rope, the singer and her bike flipped upside down. The wire sagged, but she did not fall -- instead, she reached for the glass of milk waiting below the wire and submerged the cookie. 

According to many on Twitter, back in 2017, fans of Lady Gaga had allegedly attacked Aguilera regarding the ad. One Twitter user wrote, “Oh, the ruthless dragging Xtina was subjected to for partnering with Oreo. I'm sure some people will have sudden amnesia.” Another Twitter user said, “I can no longer drag Xtina for doing oreos commercials.” One Twitter user said, “when we made fun of Xtina for her Oreo gig..... we really shouldn’t have.”



 



 



 

This isn't Lady Gaga's first tryst with Oreo in the news. Earlier this year on Father's Day, Lady Gaga sent her father a box of Oreos. Restaurateur Joe Germanotta said on Fox Business, “My daughter Stefani, you know, aka Lady Gaga, she sent me a box of Oreos. It was a great day.”

Last week, it was reported that Lady Gaga is in negotiations to board the cast of the Brad Pitt-starrer 'Bullet Train', based on author Kotaro Isaka's Japanese novel 'Maria Beetle'. The film will be directed by David Leitch of 'John Wick' and 'Deadpool 2' fame. A source told Entertainment Weekly that while Lady Gaga was eyeing a role in the film, a deal has not yet been signed.
