The pop singer met with the CEO to discuss Apple's music-centered social network Ping soon after it launched.

Lady Gaga isn't intimidated by Apple CEO Steve Jobs, apparently.

The singer last year traveled to Cupertino, Calif., along with her business manager, Troy Carter, at Jobs' request to discuss Apple's music-centered social network Ping soon after its launch, Carter told the New York Times.

The gist of the conversation -- during which Gaga and Carter apparently grilled Jobs -- was how Ping's connectivity to other social networks as well as its design.

During the meeting, Gaga and Carter "voiced concerns over the lack of integration with Facebook," the Times reports, adding that they still "left respecting Mr. Jobs' overall vision."

No word on how Jobs reacted to their concerns.
