Nicole Quinn, one of the big investors in Lady Gaga’s upcoming cosmetic line, Haus Beauty, has just confirmed that the company is set to launch in the future. No date has been set but many details have been revealed. Read her interview with The Hollywood Reporter below!
Do you have a conversation with talent about the time commitment needed for a startup?
So we’re doing something with Lady Gaga. Asking her many different questions around commitment and time and energy is what actually gave me conviction about the deal because she’s so passionate about this. She spends many hours a day calling not just the management team in the company but everybody, discussing the product and having them over to her house to brainstorm.
What can you say about her business that Lightspeed is backing?
We actually started talking to her and her team about two years ago, so this has been a long time in the making. We invested about six months ago. We’re excited for our launch because we have got some absolute superstars as part of this company, people that have true expertise in the area. They know she never does anything half-assed.
