Image Credit: Lady Gaga: Lauren Dukoff; Craig: Karen BallardCould Lady Gaga sing the next James Bond movie’s theme song? Uh, maybe. According to a report in the Sun that seems even sketchier than the U.K. tabloid’s usual standard, she’s been asked. The paper’s evidence for this assertion appears to be that Gaga’s name sounds like a Bond girl’s (does it really, though?), and that “a source” (anonymous, naturally) says she’d be “perfect on every level.”

We’ve reached out to Gaga’s reps to see if there’s any truth to this story. In the meantime: Would she be perfect on every level? I can see Gaga’s flair for the dramatic really working in a Bond theme. Her idol, Madonna, did an excellent job with 2002’s “Die Another Day.” Then again, I’m the guy who liked Jack White and Alicia Keys’ much-maligned Quantum of Solace song in 2008, so I might not be the best judge.

Do you think Lady Gaga should do the next Bond theme? List your reasons why or why not in the comments below.
