APT goes Gaga

Lady Gaga

Pop star Lady Gaga is the latest celebrity being courted by the Asian Poker Tour.

Last week, the APT invited 14-time Olympic Gold Medal winning simmer Michael Phelps to the Asian Poker Tour Macau Festival, running August 12-23 at the Galaxy StarWorld Hotel and Casino.

Now, the tour is after the "Poker Face" singing diva, who will be on the Chinese island August 15 for a concert at The Venetian Macau.

"Imagine the reaction if you showed your poker face at the Asian Poker Tour Macau Festival dear Lady Gaga," reads an open letter from the APT to Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, otherwise known as Lady Gaga.

"We have a special Celebrity event featuring Hong Kong and Chinese language stars on Tuesday the 18th which you would be more than welcome to attend."

Gaga's "Poker Face" topped the charts in late-March and early-April this year selling millions worldwide.

Like the Phelps invite, the APT is willing to pick up the entire tab.

"Despite what some poker purists might argue, you have brought the great game to the attention to millions of new people through your worldwide best selling hit," the letter reads.

"Congratulations on your nine MTV Video Award nominations, but do us and the world a favor, come and see us in Macau and show us your poker face! We would be honored."
