Before launching her Joanne World Tour, Lady Gaga was already a pioneer. Her provocative fashion and in-your-face bombast came to define the late 2000s, making her a cornerstone of modern pop culture. If you were alive in 2009, you knew at least half the words to Pokerface. Muh muh muh muh.
A decade later, and she’s still pushing boundaries. She’s breaking the rules. She is revolutionising the world as we know it, because the lanyards attached to the tour’s VIP passes are legitimate goddamn iPhone charging cables.
Fans who purchased VIP packages to the tour’s first outing in Vancouver, Canada, have discovered the lanyards’ unexpected utility, and have shared the blessed imagery online.
Folks, we’re in awe here.

It’s worth noting that the lanyard’s charging capability wasn’t mentioned, meaning this was a blessed surprise for all involved.
The Lady Gaga fandom, already known for venerating the woman born Stephani Germanotta, has responded much as you’d expect.

Judging by how expensive tour merch becomes in Australia, these bad boys will probably cost a mint should she ever bring her tour down here. Genius doesn’t come cheap, though.
