NEW YORK (Billboard) - Lady Gaga has been challenged to a televised sing-off by Los Angeles recording artist Alisa Apps, with the winner taking home a cash prize at least $1 million.

The competition would take place at New York's Madison Square Garden or London's O2 Arena, with each singer performing a series of songs.

"I feel sorry for Lady Gaga -- she's just a plastic doll generated by the music money marketing machine," Apps states in a release. "This contest gives people a chance to choose which they prefer -- plastic or real."

Lady Gaga has not responded to the challenge thus far.

Apps has yet to release her debut album, but a clip of the singer performing the track "How Do I Make Right" has earned 1.2 million views on YouTube.
