Much like the U2 album, you didn't ask for it, but you may have subconsciously wished for it. Katy Perry, the pop singer on everyone's lips these days, has gifted all iPhone 6 buyers with an exclusive selfie. Why, you ask? Just because. (But not really, we all know KP is the Queen Of Shade.)
FYI to all new IPHONE 6 buyers, there will also be a free selfie of me already in ur photo roll 💁— KATY PERRY (@katyperry) September 17, 2014
Following last week's announcement of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, Apple revealed a free download of the new U2 project, Songs Of Innocence. Sure, everyone loves free music, but what they couldn't have expected was the backlash from the album secretly appearing on everyone's phones and home computers. Needless to say, most users were none too happy.
But, all things considered, it appears their little experiment paid off. "Just six days after its release on iTunes, a record-breaking 33 million people have already experienced [the album]," Eddy Cue, Apple SVP of Internet Software and Services, told industry publication Hits Daily Double. Additionally, it appears U2's catalog has benefited handsomely from the deal. With standard releases priced at $5.99 and hits collections at $7.99, totals sales vaulted north of 30k; quite the milestone for a legend rock act.
Now, as far as Perry's fake selfie plug goes, we would sure love for this to be true. Maybe it'll come at us like a dark horse? We're ready for that perfect storm.
