King Karl - DJ & Thief

Liberty City is home to some pretty unsavory characters, but the newest version of Grand Theft Auto, the IVth, will feature at least one polished gentleman: Karl Lagerfeld.
Herr Karl will be contributing to the soundtrack of the game, selecting his favorite tracks and providing off-color commentary as a virtual DJ on one of GTA's many radio stations. Lagerfeld has ventured into the music world before, putting out compilations of his favorite tunes and commissioning Devendra Banhart to record a creepy-genius "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend" for his over-the-top Dom Perignon ad campaign, but this is his first foray into gaming. You won't actually see him in the game—at least not yet—which is probably just as well; a city as grimy as this one is no place for Dior Homme.
I prefer to be in a video than to play with it, Lagerfeld said. I would love to be a very nasty, politically incorrect character.
